Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor delivers a dynamic game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will. The game begins on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate.

Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious spirit of vengeance. Based on the player’s actions with the in-game Nemesis System, every enemy encountered is distinct and can evolve to become a personal archenemy through the course of the game. As Talion’s personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power and confront the ultimate nemesis.

I never got around to playing Shadow of Mordor, so I’m very happy they are doing a Game of the Year Edition.

These types of sets are fantastic, because there are plenty of people who would rather wait and get all of the Downloadable Content on disc, rather than paying more for it to download it digitally upon release.

Will you be picking up the Game of the Year Edition of Shadow of Mordor?
