Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Summary
Monolith takes us to the other side of the Black Gate where the Uruk and Caragor roam.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is a fun game, with a wide variety of orc warlords to murder in amusing ways. With the addition of the forthcoming Lord of the Hunt DLC, there's going to be even more enemies to slay.
The pack will add a new class of mounted Beast Master warlords, as well as the vomit-spraying Wretched Graug, the predatory Caragath and to top things off, some all-devouring Ghul hordes.
Everyone who's familiar with The Lord of the Rings knows that bad guys get the best armour. Rememberthreads? Or outside the Black Gate with a really big head?
Luckily the new, free Power of Shadow DLC that WB Games and Monolith have just released for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor includes a playable Black Hand of Sauron skin. No more looking like Mordor's littlest hobo, Talion.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is out tomorrow, and yes, it has indeed received the inevitable treatment. Check out exactly what you'll get for your money in this new trailer from WB Games.
The main draw here is clearly the chance to play as your wraith buddy Celebrimbor, taking the fight directly to evil overlord Sauron. I'm sure that will go well.
WB Games' Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor apparently wants to eat our GPUs for lunch if you're considering running the open world action game on its 'Ultra' texture settings for PC.
In fact to even get the option you'll need to download an optional and free 'Ultra HD Texture Pack', which then demands a hefty 6GB VRAM, while 'High' looks to feast upon 3GB.
One does not simply release an 'Everything You Need to Walk Into Mordor' trailer. WB Games did however, giving us a perfect rundown of what we can expect as a Ranger with a Wraith problem.
It highlights the story in Shadow of Mordor, the Nemesis system, pre-order bonuses, and a great tease about the characters we'll be chatting and stabbing with. It's out next week.
