Shadow of Mordor

Middle-Earth: The Shadow of Mordor is one of the more unusual spins on the Lord of the Rings universe, as it stars a ranger named Talion who is bound to a wraith and gains special powers as a result. Talion’s quest for vengeance will feature a dynamic open world, and today Warner Bros. released a new trailer.

Shadow of Mordor will release on October 7 for the PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. That’s the same day as Alien: Isolation and just a week before Batman: Arkham Knight, so October is going to be quite the exciting month!

If you preorder Shadow of Mordor, you’ll receive the exclusive Dark Ranger pack, which includes the Dark Ranger skin and the “Test of Power” mode, in which you fight Sauron’s Captains for powerful runes.


Right now, you can check out the game’s iOS companion app, Palantir. Shadow of Mordor looks pretty interesting, and if it lives up to its promises, it should be quite an experience. Share your thoughts in the comments below.
