F.E.A.R. developer Monolith Productions and Warner Bros. Interactive are developing Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. The game is this month’s Game Informer cover story.
Shadow of Mordor will offer a new chapter set between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Players control a lone ranger named Talion as he journeys deep into Mordor in the days before it is transformed into hellscape.
“Monolith is exploring a fascinating next-gen approach to enemies, encounters, and storytelling, one in which every player shapes their own story through the choices they make,” Game Informer said in its online blurb. “The Nemesis System assures that every enemy you fight is a named foe, and if they survive their battle with you, they continue to grow, improve, and act in the world, even as you attempt to do the same with Talion.”
Game Informer’s cover story details the game’s combat, leveling, story, setting, and more. Watch their coverage trailer below.
