Shadow of Mordor 101
In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, you are Talion -- a ranger of Gondor who is murdered along with his family atop the Black Gate of Mordor. Instead of finding peace in death, Talion is brought back to life by the legendary wraith Celebrimbor, who imbues him with the ability to strike at the heart of Sauron’s army. In order to see his family again, Talion must seek vengeance against the Black Captains of Mordor. The open-world Shadow of Mordor is the first Lord of the Rings game for next-gen systems (including PS4, Xbox One, and PC), taking players to sites never before explored in the Tolkien legendarium. Among its key features is the Nemesis System, which randomly generates challenging enemies unique to each playthrough, who react to Talion’s actions and recall his feats.
