Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, the latest game inspired by Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings saga, is now available for Xbox 360 & PS3.
The PS4 and Xbox One editions of the game are already in store, but the previous generation console version was delayed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment who, in September, said it needed to “take more time in development.”
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.
Based on the player’s actions with the in-game Nemesis System, every enemy encountered is distinct and can evolve to become a personal archenemy through the course of the game.
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.
