Interactive Entertainment for consoles and Windows, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor received high critical praise for its innovative gameplay.
In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor players become Talion, a Gondorian Ranger of the Black Gate who is slain alongside his family on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor. Resurrected from death and inextricably linked to a Wraith Spirit, Talion ventures on a quest of vengeance and discovery to unearth why he has been denied the peace of death. Players uncover the mystery behind the Spirit that compels him, discover the origins of the Rings of Power and confront their ultimate Nemesis.
The game introduces the innovative Nemesis System, through which every enemy encountered in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is procedurally generated and unique to each player, from appearance, to personality type, to strengths and weaknesses, to distinct enemy missions. Players will use Talion’s Wraith powers to manipulate and corrupt the wills of enemy Uruks and gain power toraise their own army in order to match Sauron’s forces on the field of battle.
