Today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) and Monolith Productions released the Shadow of Mordor "Everything You Need to Walk into Mordor" trailer, showcasing what players need to know about the highly-anticipated open-world action title set between the event of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
The trailer provides an in-depth look at Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's characters, storyline, the innovative Nemesis System, pre-order bonus offers and more. Players learn more about Talion and Celebrimbor’s journey for retribution and the skills they’ll employ on their mission for revenge against the Dark Lord, Sauron, and his Black Captains.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor delivers a dynamic game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will. The game begins on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate. Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance. Based on the player’s actions with the in-game Nemesis System, every enemy encountered is distinct and can evolve to become a personal archenemy through the course of the game. As Talion’s personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power and confront the ultimate nemesis.
The Palantir App is available to download for free from the App Store. A partnership between WBIE and Wikia, Palantir will sync with the final game, to reveal additional layers of information, insights and fan-authored content, creating a unique second-screen experience. Enable Palantir’s sync mode while the Shadow of Mordor – Everything You Need to Walk into Mordor Trailervideo plays to try it out.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will launch September 30th, 2014 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and on November 18th for PS3 and XBox 360.
