Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor hit store shelves and digital downloads today. Here’s a little help for you if you already have your copy, or if like me, you’re thinking about getting it in the future. If so, this will give you a better idea of what’s going on with it. Once I heard it was basically a next gen version of the old Lord of the Rings games, I knew I would one day play it, if not own it. And seeing this video only confirmed my intentions even more.

If you’ve already began playing this, let us know what you think of it.

Here’s a complete description of the game taken from theRadBrad‘s Youtube post:

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is a third-person action role-playing video game developed by Monolith Productions and published by Warner Bros. Games which takes place in the world of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Legendarium. The game is available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. The game is set to fill the gap between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It is a story of revenge, slaughter, and mystery set entirely in Mordor, the Land of Shadows. At its center is Talion, an ordinary man who loses everything, including his mortal life. Possessed by an immensely powerful wraith, Talion becomes a revenant, rising from the grave to avenge the murder of his family. Meanwhile, the wraith inside him, Celebrimbor, struggles to remember his forgotten past, which will allow him to increase in power.

The game is set in a fully open world, and features various role-playing game elements such as experience points and skills. As you progress in the game, Talion will grow stronger, but so will his enemies. Talion has various unique wraith abilities which give him an edge on the battlefield. By stepping into the wraith world Talion can slow down time, teleport over distances and see targets from afar. These wraith abilities can all be leveled up separately, and the player can also unlock more powerful abilities.

This is the Prologue mission, the very first mission. Check theRadBrad on Youtube for walkthroughs of the rest of these missions:
