Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor

This week Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) and Monolith Productions have been showcasing their new action game Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor at Gamescon in Cologne, Germany.  Today they have shared screenshots and announced achievements for the adventure. 


Shadow of Mordor, set to release September 30th, is a single player action game set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings.  Players traverse the world of Middle Earth as Talion, a ranger with a tragic story, who is reincarnated by a mysterious revenge seeking spirit.  As the game progresses players discover more about their character and the spirit that compels him on his quest. 

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor promises to utilize its Nemesis System to create an exciting next generation game world that adapts enemies to the actions and decisions of the player whom they are battling.  This adaptive world of Middle-Earth will contain enemies that utilize their personalities, strengths, and weaknesses to shape their player encounters. Each enemy encounter affects the eventual archenemies who are created uniquely for every play-through. This type of structure promises epic replay value for the game.

Hello Nation! My Name is Mary-Ellen Tolliver; I am 26 years old and live in the great state of Texas. I have always enjoyed games, especially card games and board games. As a kid I did not have video games but I always enjoyed Oregon Trail and Chips Challenge (props to you if you know Chips Challenge!). Now that I am a “grown-up” I am slowly discovering the vast world of digital games and gaming. I have become especially fond of indie games and games with amazing soundtracks. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, exercising, learning new things, reading, and trying to figure out what amazing paths the future holds. I am looking forward to bringing a novice viewpoint to the APG Nation and learning more about games and gaming.

Have your say!
