New ‘Shadow of Mordor’ Trailer

Monolith Productions, the company behind last year’s Guardians of Middle-earth video game, have release a new trailer for their upcoming game, Shadow of Mordor.

The game takes place between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings where the player controls a character named ‘Talion’, a Gondorian ranger. Talion is killed and then brought back as a wraith, for which he is seeking revenge on the armies of Mordor. Talion will be able to move in both the Seen and Unseen worlds, whilst the story will involve both Gollum and the Rings of Power.

Shadow of Mordor will be released on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, XBox One and XBox 360 on 7 October 2014.
