Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor set for release on October 7


12:00 PM on 04.02.2014





It's been awhile since we last heard from Monolith's new action-adventure title set in Tolkien's fantasy universe. Now, WB Games has revealed the release date, and fans will get to experience Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor later this year on October 7. And with most upcoming releases, we got to see some pre-order bonuses as well.

We also got a brand new trailer giving a little more back story on Talion's motive for revenge, and what exactly brought him back to life. The story was written by Christian Cantamessa, who also penned the story for Red Dead Redemption, and the folks at Monolith were keen to make the narrative a big focus of Middle-earth.

October is going to be a pretty busy month for movie/comic game. With Alien: Isolation set for release on the same day as Middle-earth, and the new Batman: Arkham title the week after, people are going to have to make some tough decisions on which game they'll spend their time with. But regardless, it'll be an exciting month for fans no doubt.

Shadow of Mordor looks good but is it Lord of the Rings?

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has gotten a lot of people excited because of its seemingly great combat and interesting reputation system but is it me, or does it just look like a generic dark fantasy game? I'll be honest, m...more

Engage in psychological warfare with Shadow of Mordor's Wraith

You might've thought that Orcs were all fleshy and a good ol'-fashioned sword through the squishy parts would be enough to take care of them. False. Some might fall to the blade, but you'll need something decidedly more cere...more

New Shadow of Mordor trailer moves like a ghost, fights like a devil

We spend so much of our lives working. When I die, if there's some sort of afterlife, I want to just chill out. Make it look like a never-ending Corona commercial or something. Doesn't that sound nice? That's not a position ...more

I couldn't kill this damned orc in Shadow of Mordor

Our first hands-on session with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor had me going up against some orc bodyguards to take out their boss, a war chief. If you recall from my preview, there was one orc that escaped me. His name? ...more

First hands-on of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor won me over

I had absolutely no expectations for  Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. I’ve never played any of the franchise games, and I knew very little about the upcoming title. But my first hands on was a very pleasant surprise. A mere 45 minutes of play of its sandbox game got its hooks in me and now I'm totally sold.   more

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is looking stabby

This video for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is supposed to be about runes, which are dropped by fallen foes and used to upgrade protagonist Talion's weapons. And it is. But I can't not concentrate on how ridiculous the act...more

Is P.T. a work of art, or a pixel-hunting exercise in frustration?

When P.T. was announced at gamescom a few weeks back, no one really jumped for joy. Billed as a "playable teaser," the interactive trailer was very much a game, and come to find out -- it had many elements of old school ...more

This is it: Final trailer for The Walking Dead Season 2

This will spoil season 2 for you up to this point. If you're not caught up (like me), don't watch. Otherwise, get excited about "No Way Back," the final episode in season 2 of The Walking Dead. Can it live up to the first season's strong finale? "No Way Back" hits PC/Mac and North American PS3/Vita on August 26; Xbox 360 and European PS3/Vita on August 27; iOS on August 28. more

Want to watch 35 minutes of gameplay from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt?

With gamescom now behind us, you'd figure that CD Projekt RED would keep a tight lid on all things related to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. But apparently not, as it would seem. A week after the show, the developers decided to un...more
