Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor Game Play (Video)

I haven’t heard much of the game Shadows of Mordor but after watching this eight and a half minute video, I can definitely say that this game actually makes me want to buy a next gen system sooner than later. This game play footage is being shown for the Xbox One, but it will be available PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and PC as well. However, you can tell right off the bat that this game is designed for the new console generation and to get the full experience we are probably going to want to play it as such. At least that’s the impression that I get.

The graphics look amazing and it very much has an Assassin’s Creed feel to it, but I like that you are not locked in to only doing stealth missions. The combat system looks very intuitive and has a little bit of the Batman Arkham style to it, at least as far as attacking and countering. I think what impresses me the most is that we actually get a new character to play in an open world Middle Earth. I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty exciting to me. Even though this video is eight  minutes long there are still a lot of unanswered questions. For example; Is there a combat or weapons upgrade system? Can we customize the look of the main character Talion? Or will there be any appearances from some of the characters from the movie?

One look at this video and you can tell that Shadow of Mordor is much darker and grittier than previous LOTR game titles that mainly focused on events from the movies. I definitely like the look and feel of this game, and I personally am really looking forward to playing it. Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is expected sometime later this year. As always I want to know what you think. Watch the video below and leave me comment on here or on the Facebook page.

Enjoy!
