Warner Bros Interactive has announced a brand new Lord of the Rings videogame with the reveal of Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. A third person action game, Mordor casts the player as Talion a range whom is killed while battling the forces of Mordor. As he draws his final breath Talion is revived by the spirit of vengeance and given the same powers that the Ring Wraiths posses. Sworn to destroy the forces that ended his mortal existence, Shadow of Mordor sounds like an awesome tale of revenge with a fantasy twist.
The developers have also revealed one of the game’s unique mechanics – the fact that each enemy you encounter is different. Every character will have their own attributes such as strength, their own personality and their own weaknesses. Also briefly mentioned was the Nemesis System where Talion will forge rivalries with enemy NPCs. It is unknown if the Nemesis System pertains to only major characters in the story-line or if its type specific, similar to the way that players can have a “favoured” enemy in some pen & paper systems, affording them extra bonuses.
