Monolith Productions has released a new developer diary for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, this one examining the game’s story.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor takes place between the events of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, and tells an original story of a ranger named Talion who’s killed by Sauron, only to be revived as a Wraith and embark on a quest for revenge. The developers wanted to tell a new tale that fans haven’t heard before, but at the same time stay true to the original works of Tolkien.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will rule them all on October 7. Watch our interview with the game’s director of design Michael de Plater by clicking here.
