In the words of the late, great Jim Taggart, there’s been a Mordor. Which, in this case, heralds the arrival of Monolith’s latest effort, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. So far Shadow of Mordor has arrived to rapturous acclaim, which shouldn't be too surprising from the team that created Condemned, F.E.A.R. and the sublime No One Lives Forever.
This latest two-minute launch trailer gives some background behind the story of Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, which is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, following the ranger/wrath Talion as he embarks on a bloodthirsty tale of revenge. It’s classic Middle-Earth fare, but what’s most important is it tees up a raft of excuses to go toe-to-toe with a bunch of remarkably ugly orcs in some brutal and varied battles, clearly taking some hefty cues from the Batman: Arkham series.
