A bunch of information on Warner Bros’ upcoming Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor was released this morning as part of their Gamescom reveals. New screenshots, which include Gollum, The Black Captain, Talion, and Celebrimbor can be viewed here, as well as a new trailer for the game, and the lengthy list of achievements for Middle Earth.
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor begins on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate. Players take control of 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.
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor launches on September 30th for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and then on October 2nd for PC.
