For Tolkien fans everywhere, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is the game you've been waiting for. With the engine and hardware of next generation consoles, it provides the player with a truly immersive experience, combining popular gameplay mechanics with its own distinct flair. The nemesis system, along with a constantly evolving environment and combat system, makes Shadow of Mordor truly unique and fresh.
In Shadow of Mordor, you are Talion -- a Gondorian Ranger who was murdered along with his family atop The Black Gate of Mordor. But Talion was not allowed peace in death; rather, he was brought back to life by a legendary Wraith who possesses his body. In order to see his family again, Talion must seek vengeance against The Black Captains of Sauron.
Wikia has been working on a revolutionary companion application for Shadow of Mordor called the Palantir.
