Mordor is a dark and scary place. Those who wanted a friend to keep them company in these harsh lands will have to travel alone, however.
A fan asked if Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor would have a co-op mode and this was the response from the Shadow of Mordor Twitter page:
@TobiasKarlsson_ Alas, no co-op. Shadow of Mordor is being crafted wholly as a single-player experience.

That’s a pretty definitive, clear cut answer.
While this news may be disappointing, I think it’s probably for the best that the developers focus on delivering a solid first person experience rather than shoehorn in a multiplayer mode that may not be all that well crafted.
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor will be released for Windows PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One sometime this year.
