Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
The game is set between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. You play Talion, a ranger who is murdered the night Sauron and his army return to Mordor. He's resurrected by a Spirit and given Wraith abilities and goes on a revenge mission. Along the way he learns the origins of the Rings of Power.
The game introduces new gameplay mechanics to the action genre, creating opportunities for emergent and customised gameplay that will be rewarding for players. The Nemesis System has been singled out as a highlight: enemy relationships and characteristics are shaped by player actions and decisions to create personal archenemies that remember and adapt to the player and are distinct to every gameplay session.
