Here's the newest trailer for the upcoming "Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor
" game, and boy, does it look... interesting. In the game, which is set between the events of The Hobbit
and The Lord of the Rings
, you're a Ranger named Talion who has special Wraith powers. These powers allow you to do several awesome slow-mo-Assassins-Creed-like moves, and you're also able to terrify certain enemies into becoming loyal to you. The game also features a unique "nemesis system" feature, which basically means it remembers your interactions with specific characters and enemies and adjusts the gameplay and storyline accordingly.
Although the gameplay looks pretty fun, however, it remains to be seen how interesting the plot actually is. And even though it's being developed for next-gen consoles like the Xbox One and the PS4 (along with being developed for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC), the graphics seem a bit unimpressive. Hopefully the the developer, Monolith Productions
, spruces everything up in time for release.
