Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is a game that takes place in Tolkien’s great lore, that was used in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movie franchises. This game takes tons of inspiration from Tolkien, while also adding new things that the dev crew thought would fit well with the overall narrative.
October this year is a crazy month for most. Originally games like Dragon Age, Battlefield, Drive Club, Alien, and Mordor were all slated to release in the same window, notice how I said Morder was?
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor has been pulled forward to release on September 30th in the US, and October 3rd in the UK. This gives gamers time to gather their funds to prepare for the shopping war that’ll come later in the month, but also means we get to enjoy a new game even earlier, and that’s always awesome.
