This is a game that flew under our radar somewhat, but is starting to look really quite excellent. Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is the latest Lord of the Rings game, set in between The Hobbit and the main saga. You play as Talion, a ranger with magical abilities, who is on a quest for revenge against Sauron.
We won’t do too much explaining, as the trailer above should give you a good idea of what to expect. The game looks dark and mature, with some awesome action gameplay – exactly what LotR games of past have needed. It’s out next month, and I’m sure we’ll see plenty more between now and then. For now, we’re optimistic that the LotR franchise could finally get the game it deserves.
