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: A visual tour of stabbing orcs in the face

Shadow of Mordor's Nemesis system signals the true beginning of this generation

It's bad enough dying a humiliating death at the hands of some random orc, but "Azdush the Dung Collector?" Really? He couldn't have been "Azdush the Shield Breaker" or "Azdush the Invincible?" I could have taken a bit of con...more

Want to watch a season pass trailer for a game that hasn't released yet?

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's doing mostly fine from the reviews that came out last week, but that doesn't mean that you will like it. How can you like a game if you haven't played it yet? You can't, plain and simple...more

Max's five reasons Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor kicks ass

Like Max, I didn't know what to make of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor but taking a guarded approach has paid off -- the reviews are in and they're overwhelmingly positive. Nice surprise! Still not sure I'll rush out to grab the game at launch on Tuesday -- I've got my hands full, as I'm sure many of you will shortly -- but it's much higher on my to-play list after this week.more

Review: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Developing a licensed game can be extremely difficult. Not only does Monolith Productions have the Lord of the Rings film series to honor with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, but the developer also has to work in ma...more

Bored of the things: Shadow of Mordor should've been a dating sim

I was reading Weird Dad Andy Astruc's loving look at Shadow of Mordor's menus, which is basically praise for Mordor's Nemesis system. The same system left our own Nic Rowen giddy and, uh, shitfaced. N...more
