Warner Brothers has revealed the release date for one of the best looking games to come out of the Lord of The Rings universe, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and it’s a lot sooner than everyone expected. The game will be releasing on October 7th, 2014, and is scheduled for release on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One and PC. The box art for the PS4 version can be seen below:
Those who pre-order the game will get access to an exclusive character skin, and also the ‘Test of Power’ challenge mode, which allows you to earn experience points and upgrades before starting the game, by pitting you against Sauron’s minions. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is not part of The Lord of the Rings canon, but does have some aspects of the rings of power mentioned in the story. However, not being part of the canon is likely to mean the developers have more freedom to create the game they want to.
We can’t wait to see how it turns out!
