It is hard to stand out in all the games inspired by Tolkien’s fictional world. One thing that is certainly good about Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is that it will be an adventure game. This fits perfect into the Lord of the Rings world, because all books were one big adventure themselves.
The story is supposed to fill the gap between the events of The Hobbit and beginning of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Players will take role of a Talion, a brave ranger, who was killed together with his whole family when Sauron and his evil minions returned to Mordor.
Talian gets resurrected by a spirit of vengeance and gains Wraith abilities. His mission to revenge his family lays on a dangerous path to Mordor. "Players will explore the dark and very personal theme of vengeance in a world where decisions have a consequence, and those consequences persist even after death," said Samantha Ryan, senior vice president for production at Warner Bros.
The game is being developed on the new Nemesis System which will give players an ability to craft their own battles, rewards, and enemies. This is something new in action-adventure games and to top it up, the world will adapt to player’s choices. We've seen this in RPG’s before, but never in an adventure games.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be released for PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, and PS4.
The day has come when we can have a look at Shadow of Mordor screen. Below each image is a note from Warner Bros explaining what an image represents.
"Players take the form of Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance."
"Set between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth: Shadow Of Mordor begins on the night of Sauron's return to Mordor, throwing the region into turmoil."
"Discover a powerful and dynamic next-gen gameplay mechanic that allows players' actions to shape enemy relationships and characteristics, creating personal and unique stories and gameplay arcs that remain persistent even after death."
"Players command Wraith Powers to orchestrate and execute their vengeance to outwit enemies, infiltrate the ranks, and dominate within an adaptive world."
"A multitude of enemies will require different tactics, encouraging the player to advance their skills, abilities and weapons to become legendary through a system of rune rewards crafted according to the player's strategy."
Images look pretty good, but we will see if the game will live up to its name.
