Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor New Info

Warner Bros. Entertainment has just released a nice little info-dump of new developments for its upcoming game Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.

A new trailer shows the player character Talion as he grows in power and begins to serve his revenge against the dark lands using their own orcs against them.

Other information released along with the trailer is some of the creative talent behind the game. Notables include acclaimed video game musical composer Garry Schyman (responsible for the Bioshock Infinite score). Other creative individuals include:

•   Troy Baker – Talion (The Last of Us, Batman: Arkham Origins, BioShock Infinite, Batman: Arkham City)
•   Nolan North – Black Hand (Uncharted series, Batman: Arkham Origins)
•   Alastair Duncan – Wraith (Mass Effect series, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception)
•   Laura Bailey – Ioreth (Halo 4, Batman: Arkham Origins, The Last of Us)
•   Liam O’Brien – Gollum (Infamous: Second Son, Grand Theft Auto V, The Last of Us)

The game itself is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, based on an original story written by Christian Cantamessa (Red Dead Redemption). It looks like it will take the player on quite a journey and the means by which Talion achieves his aims look very dark indeed. Should be one well worth watching out for.
