Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Release Date Announced

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has recently announced the release date for their upcoming game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The game will be released on October 2, 2014.

The game puts players into the role of Talion, a ranger of Gondor whose family was charged with guarding the Black Gate of Mordor. However, his family was killed by Sauron’s army upon the dark lord’s return. However, Talion is brought back to life by a mysterious spirit of vengeance. Now possessing new powers, Talion ventures in to Mordor to seek vengeance.

The game will feature a Nemesis System that tracks how Talion interacts with unique characters. Depending on his interactions with them, each character will react to Talion differently, such as certain NPCs seeking vengeance due to Talion injuring or disfiguring them in some way.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be released for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
