The trailer dives into the story behind the award-winning action game set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
Talion, a Ranger of the Black Gates, is slaughtered alongside his family and is resurrected by the powerful Wraith, Celebrimbor. The two will face the might of Sauron’s Army and Black Captains with the aid of unexpected allies, ultimately confronting The Dark Lord himself. Middle-earth™: Shadow of Mordor™ is available from Friday 3rd October 2014 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
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.
Middle-earth™: Shadow of Mordor™ is available from Friday, 3rd October 2014 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Steam; and launches 21st November 2014 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
