It’s really refreshing to see a new and unique take on an extremely popular property. Rather than opting for another The Lord of the Rings title or a movie tie-in for The Hobbit, Monolith Productions are creating something new which feels as though it adds to the lore rather than simply retelling it.
As you can see from the trailer above, Shadow of Mordor will allow you to travel the lands, find army leaders and then turn them, in turn creating your own armies of orcs to take on the dark lord himself, Sauron.
The combat looks really great, and as well as taking on foes, you’ll also see protagonist Talion riding caragors, all while fighting more enemies. Shadow of Mordor will release on October 7th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
