GameInformer has announced their next cover story and chock full of Tolkien. Monolith Productions and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is bringing us Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor for current and next-gen platforms. You’ll play a ranger – no, not Aragorn – this is a prequel! You get some guy named Talion as he treks across Mordor, presumably fighting orcs and questing for some hard-to-pronounce thingamabob.
The Nemesis System assures that every enemy you fight is a named foe, and if they survive their battle with you, they continue to grow, improve, and act in the world, even as you attempt to do the same with Talion.
Sounds promising! I can’t wait to fight some orc with a lot of consonants in his name again and again.
