Fans of The Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit franchises should have some interest in Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. The game takes place in the same universe as these two titles, however new ideas and storylines were created specifically for this game to keep things fresh.

In the video below, we hear about how the game is made with Tolkien’s vision in mind. They worked hard to craft a new experience in Middle Earth, while keeping the roots similar to the rest of the series. We also see motion capture being used to capture the movements of the actors to best suit the filmed tone of the cutscenes in game.

Hopefully Shadow of Mordor can add even more to the already layer filled lore of Tolkien’s works, check out the latest dev diary below:
