Middle-earth: Shadow Of Mordor

So this is the era of fan-following. Everyone has their own favorite character, and their own favorite universe. People love DC, Marvel, Dark Horse, Star Wars, Start Trek, Harry Potter, Twilight etc. I don’t blame them, each of these universe is so rich in characters, stories and substance that its all but natural to lose yourself into them.

J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth is one such world. In fact many will argue that it is perhaps the first world that started off the fashion of having a universe detailed in every way right from languages to customs to history to folklore to fables.

It is precisely for the same reason that Middle Earth provides such awesome material to make amazing games. Each one can focus on a new story inside that world, and never even touch other if the developers so wanted. Continuing in the same vein, Middle-Earth : Shadow Of Mordor will be arriving at games store this October.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be available on 7th October 2014 2014 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor delivers a dynamic game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will. The game begins on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate. Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance. As Talion’s personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power and confront the ultimate nemesis.

Second Screen Experience: The Palantir App

The Palantir app, which is available on the Apple Story here, will sync with game assets and the final game, to reveal additional layers of information, insights and fan-authored content, creating a unique second-screen experience. Enable Palantir’s sync mode while the Official Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Story Trailer – Banished from Death plays to try it out.

Pre-order bonus details:

Fans who pre-order Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will get access at the game’s launch to The Dark Ranger exclusive bonus pack. Available at all participating retailers, the pack will provide exclusive content and challenges for players including:
