New Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Trailer Revealed

Andy Salisbury's Avatar Posted by on May 22, 2014 // Community Manager, Monolith Productions

At Monolith Productions, we’ve had a blast creating and sharing the world within Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PS4 and PS3. Today, we can reveal that several journalists were able to go hands-on with the game and the Nemesis System, and their very own impressions of what they saw and played will be shared.

These esteemed members of the press have been spending their time near the Sea of Nurn, a brand new location and home to Lady Marwen, a tribal leader of Men in the region. In Nurn, Talion will not only be dominating the Uruk hordes of Sauron, but also beasts including the fierce caragors of Mordor. With the introduction of Marwen, the stakes have been raised significantly. What began as a personal story of vengeance is now a challenge to build an army deep behind enemy lines to challenge the power of the Dark Lord himself.

But that’s enough from me. Check out the trailer, which will let you see Lady Marwen, the Sea of Nurn, and Talion riding caragors with your own eyes.

Onward, to Middle-earth!

Why so many games released on that day?

Alien Isolation
Dragon Age
and this

week after; Batman
week after that, Evolve

All worthy of day one purchases. Yet we’ve had a massive drought in games since the next-gen consoles came out. This can’t be good for anyone?

Unreal! This is one of those games I wish I didn’t know anything about until a few weeks before release. This is going to be a tough wait. I am so impressed cannot wait to play this D1!

Cutscenes look graphically amazing… However, gameplay graphics do not look as good, and gameplay just looks like a typical hack and slash. Would like to learn more about the actual gameplay mechanics to prove me wrong.
