Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Releases One Week Earlier

Warner Bros announced today that the highly anticipated action game, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, will be available on October 3rd for PC. Yeap, instead of delaying the game, Warner Bros will release the action game one week earlier than originally planned at all participating retailers.

As the press release reads, in the game players will experience the depth of the Nemesis System, where every enemy is unique, differentiated by their appearance, personality, strengths and weaknesses. These enemies are shaped by their encounters with the player to create personal archenemies who are unique to every gameplay session.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor aims to deliver a vibrant game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will.

The game begins on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate. Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance.

Based on the player’s actions with the in-game Nemesis System, every enemy encountered is distinct and can evolve to become a personal archenemy through the course of the game.
