Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be a single-player experience, according to the game’s official Twitter.
A fan recently asked if the game would feature any multiplayer to which a spokesperson wrote: “Alas, no co-op. Shadow of Mordor is being crafted wholly as a single-player experience.”
Set in Middle-earth, you’ll play as Talion, a valiant ranger who, moments before his own death, witnesses his family slain the night Sauron and his army return to Mordor. Ressurected by a spirit of vengeance, and powered with Wraith abilities, Tailon ventures into Mordor to exact his revenge, whilst learning about the spirit that compels him and the rings of power.
Players will also be able to form enemies through their own actions and decisions, enabling them to create their own battles and rewards thanks to the game’s unique “Nemesis” system.
It is being developed by Monolith Productions – developers of the F.E.A.R and Condemned series – in collaboration with Middle-earth Enterprises. Peter Jackson and artists from Weta Workshop – who worked on the film adaptation of the Academy Award winning Lord of the Rings trilogy – are also lending a helping hand with settings, characters and story.
Warner Bros. Interactive, the publishers, recently released a walkthrough trailer detailing the game.
We’ve reached out to Monolith Productions for comment – so far, no word back.
