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.
