This week on MonolithLive , we're going to continue with what we're making a tradition.
This Friday we'll once again be joined by VP of Creative, Michael de Plater for a quick chat. He's quite enjoyed answering your questions live, so he's decided to make Twitch a regular part of his Friday. But, remember – his time is limited! Get there early. (Don’t say we didn’t warn you.)
After that, we'll be shouting out the fastest among you live on Twitch – and, we'll kick-off our next challenge. Last time, you took up the mantle of the Test of Speed , but this time around you're going to be removing our ability to use Talion's sword, dagger, or bow. Think we're up for it?
See you this Friday. Same Monolith time, same Monolith place: 2 PM Pacific/ 5 PM…Read more >
We’ve been keeping a close eye on you. And, as humble members of your conversation, we’re compelled to join in whenever we can. That’s why this week, our Twitch stream will focus in on the road to War alongside one of our fearless leaders.
To kick things off our VP of Creative, Michael de Plater is going to join us for a quick chat directly with you – the community. His time is limited, so be sure to get there early!
To follow that up, we’re going to spend some time in Shadow of Mordor conquering the greatest challenges it has to offer. As we’ve seen so many of you diving back into your playthroughs, we couldn’t help but get in on the action!
Join us. This Friday, 2 PM Pacific at: http://www.twitch.tv/MonolithLiveRead more >
Friends, Rangers, and Uruk sympathizers,
The time has finally arrived. The second-coming of the award-winning Nemesis System is well on its way - and gameplay has officially been revealed!
But, we've known you for a while. We're sure you're going to want some more. That's why this upcoming Friday at 2 PM Pacific, we're going to host a Developer's Cut stream live on our Twitch Channel. There, you'll get an up-close and personal look at the Gameplay Reveal alongside our VP of Creative here at Monolith Productions, Michael de Plater. (You can thank us in Chat.)
Join us! We'll have plenty to discuss – and we're sure you might have a couple extra questions of your own.
See you Friday.Read more >
Hey I just finished the game and I'm trying to complete all the trophies, but I need friends to complete one random mission (Revenge). Please add me on PS4, my name is "SalvaBoomClap"Read more >
Llegando al final del juego me doy cuenta de algo que me ha estado fastidiando desde el inicio. A diferencia de otros que he visto por internet, mi juego no posee en el menú el apartado de "Armas y runas". Solo he podido acceder a esta parte del menú cuando mataba a un jefe o completaba una misión secundaria y me dejaba pulsar "->". ¿Alguien sabe como solucionar esto?Read more >
we have some great ideas for Shadow of Mordor sequel. First one is difficulty of game: Easy, Normal and Hard. Difficulties have different powers of orcs. Easy: 1-20 (like in first game). Normal: 10-25 and Hard: 15-30. However everything will increase power with harder difficulty. We think it can be cool new class of orcs. For example scouts, who are hidden in bushes and report you for the nearest captain and he will instantly attack you. Your uruks can´t be slavers Next: new creatures: trolls and great beasts. Please add Shadow Brand ability from Bright Lord. New locations and bigger map. It shall be nice when you can´t execute or brand your uruk when you fighting with group of enemies and when some ordinary orc kills some captain he…Read more >
Jugadores,Fans y desarrolladores de sombras de mordor:
Hola a todos,en este blog tratare de dar mis ideas y consejos para la posible creacion de la secuela de Sombras de Mordor basandose en mis largas horas de juego y experiencia.
Personalmente pienso que al juego se le puede sacar un partido enorme y esta bastante desaprovechado siendo divertido aun asi,le faltan ciertos rasgos para llegar al sobresaliente,asi que que me gustaria plantearos y que compartais y me digais que os parecen de cara a la secuela de este buen juego ya que si nos hicieran caso a los fans y jugadores de esta saga se podria crear una verdadera obra maestra.
No voy a entrar en cuestiones de graficos sino simplemente en jugabilidad y diversion con algunas ideas propias.

Доброго времени суток, игра по настоящему вышла удачной, не в плане прохождения на мой взгляд, а в плане борьбы уроков за власть. Так интересно наблюдать стычки между ними, правда хотелось бы видеть более продвинутую систему прокачки уруков. Мои предложения по этому поводу:
1. Если сделать так, когда ты выбираешь урука изначально вести его к пьедесталу вождя, направляя его на всяческие поединки на арену, при этом сделать путь к пьедесталу, например из 30 соперников.
2. Прибавить уровень урукам, сделать не 20 а 30.
3. Добавить скилов, с последующим выбором этих скилов игроком, можно на накопленный опыт улучшать их к примеру, добавить оружия и анимации, добавить различные приемы, добавление приручение уруком карагора, было бы эффектно.
4. Когда …Read more >
Today i just bought Shadows of Mordor. it should be at my house by saturday. so far even looking at the options online, i love how you can extendx gameplay with the season pass. from what i have seen of the game play videos - the game looks amazing, which is quite suprising as i remember Lord of the Rings on the gamecube. frankly that game was very disappointing. I think with the success this company has had so far with this game, i would LOVE to see them use the same game engine to create the Hobbit and Lord of the Ring series, and even some of Tolkins lesser known works like the Silmarillion and The Children of Húrin. that would be awesome! :-)Read more >

Hello everyone! I'm new here. I came here because is very annoyed to play a game with average graphics that takes too long to load a simple screen like the Uruk screen where you can see the captains etc. . Also the cut scenes are messed up! They don't load porperly! :/ and sometimes the sounds bugs too forcing me to quit the game and start again. PLEASE Monolith fix this.....the game is awesome but it NEEDS some care for PS3 and 360. Regards.Read more >
The Test of Defiance Challenge Weekend has come to a close. Congratulations to our winners!
- True Villan
Mordor's uruks have started up their war machine. And, with the combined might of Talion and Celebrimbor you've been able to stem their collective tide.
But, the time has come to do battle without Celebrimbor allowing you to cheat death, and to harness the pure might of the warrior Lithariel.
This weekend, from Friday at 9am Pacific to Sunday at 9pm Pacific, fight your way to the top of the Test of Defiance leaderboards and unseat the current champions. Winners will be celebrated here in this Wikia blog post, in the in-game MOTD, and on our social channels - so make every at…

You and your friends are the toughest in Mordor. But, even the most dominant combatants will see a day that they’re bested on the field of battle. For your friends, there’s a good chance that this has already happened. When it does, the Captains of Mordor might set their sights on other players, in other games.
We’re talking, of course, about Vendetta missions in Shadow of Mordor.
If your PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One is connected to the Internet, new missions will automatically appear in your game, granting you a chance to do battle against a Captain or Warchief that’s proved himself powerful enough to take down a fellow player. (Shadow of Mordor will opt to grab a player from your Steam, PlayStation Network, or Xbox LIVE friends list fir…

Hay everybody! who else purchased Shadow over Mordor for their PS3s and XBOX 360s who didn't want to purchase a next gen console yet? because OH. MY. GOD. THEY DIDN'T EVEN TRY. You know, I was aware fundamentally that the graphics would be down scaled down (as you do) but with games like Assassin's Creed 2, Destiny, Killzone 3, Halo 4 and GTA 5, all of which are beautiful games, I was convinced that it wouldn't be that bad. Oh and Dark Souls & Dark Souls 2 of course are very pretty games as well but you CANNOT tell me that Shadows over Mordor for the ps3 and Xbox 360 looks the way it does because "last gen consoles are primitive"; If they were primitive then i'm sure my ps3 would have erupted into flames when I played Deus Ex: Human Revolu…Read more >
Третьего дня посмотрел прохождения Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor. Скажу сразу игра добротная играть можно. Графон просто good. В особенности нравится боевая система. Шикарно. Больше нечего сказать а больше и не надо.
Однако владею боксом 360. Надеялся на качественный порт на консоли седьмого поколения. Разочарован. Очень. Игра выглядит так как будто её выпустили на playstation 2. Поэтому частично стал презренно относиться к выпускам от Behavior Interactive. Команда Монолит могла портировать игру намного лучше. Несмотря на графику, качество битв, движений и другого геймплея оставляет желать лучшего. Не понятно зачем так долго ждал эту игру. Да и зачем вообще нужно было откладывать выход игры.
Итог: игра сырая. Разработчикам следует создать п…Read more >

It was upon a Midsummers day that i stumbled across a Leigon Edition copy of Shadow of Mordor and within seconds the game was in my hands as i handed over the money to purchase. I rushed home and inserted the disc, my heart was beating faster than ever! I play the prologue and instantly fell in love with the game.
This game delivered on so many fronts as soon as you start. The tutorial/prologue was very well done in my opinion and i think that the way we figure out key infomation during the story is very well structered and put together. This game really lives up to the hype it has been receiving the past 11 months. The one thing i didn't like is that there are only 20 Story Missions where as i would have loved a more streched out…

I just finished the main storyline of Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor last night. Although I was disappointed in the boss endings, I wasn't too upset with how they finished the story. I had heard that the ending was disappointing/anti-climactic, so I wasn't really expecting much. When it was all over (I'll try to keep this spoiler free), I have to admit, I was a little disappointed - both the final boss battles were very much lacking in action, and mainly turned out to be scripted events during which I had to push a few buttons here and there to make sure I was paying attention, and the "Big" battle that came immediately before that was disappointing, mainly because I didn't kill a single one of the "tough guys", but watched as my brande…Read more >

Game release date October 3rd 2014? No NO NO NO NO. Game release date is 30 September, Im sure it is, its in my calander, WTF, have i got this wrong? no cant have! quickly check a couple of sites, release date 3rd October.

Today I went to buy Shadow of Mordor at Gamestop it didn't have midnight release party I didn't think anything of it so later on I go to Walmart, they said they have it for every system but ps3 so I go to next Walmart they say same thing. So then I just decide to buy a ps4 then I find out the game is recalled and am left with no answers of why I go to another Walmart same issue pleas inform me of why. I have been waiting for months maybe a year for this game!!!Read more >
-- Reported to WB at http://support.wbgames.com.
Maybe it's not officially released yet? I don't know, but somehow I was able to launch the game shortly after midnight PST and so far the game is entirely unplayable.
First off, just as an FYI for the 3D gaming fans like me, 3D seems to not work at all in this game. My system meets all the recommended requirements, and I ran it at the recommended settings as well and 3D does not even render at all. VERY disappointing I must say!! If it were possible, I'd probably return the game at that alone as I spent a ton of money on my 3D gaming system and am a huge fan of 3D in general.
Aside from that, I saw some horrendous screen tearing (starting in Borderless mode, but it also happens for me in Full S…Read more >
