One does not simply walk into Mordor, unless they’ve read the reviews.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is developer by Monolith productions and is a different take on the Lord of the Rings universe. Taking place between the events of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, the game features a new character named Talion who comes back from the dead with the help of Celebrimbor, the maker of the Rings of Power.
The game features voice talent by both Troy Baker and Nolan North, and has a unique system called the the Nemesis System. The developer released a video yesterday telling you everything you need to know about the game, if you’re on the fence.
