Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is an upcoming action role-playing game that is expected to be joining the Lord of the Rings franchise later this year, to be released on the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and the Xbox One, the game is said to bridge the gap between The Hobbit and The Lord of Rings, and is currently in development by Monolith Productions.

“In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, the player plays as a ranger with Wraith-like abilities by the name of Talion. The game is an open world video game and players will have the freedom to pursue side quests and roam around the world.

The game makes use of a new system called the Nemesis System which remembers the player’s interactions with specific types of characters they will encounter in the game and adjusts the manner in which these characters will react to the player throughout the game. The player will have the option to level up the abilities of Talion both as a ranger and as a Wraith through two distinct skill trees.”

And that’s about all we know about the game so far, thankfully there’s a new gameplay trailer that was released earlier  today to provide some more details, check it out below:
