Delays Over Mordor (Shadow of Mordor)

Warner Bros Games have announced that their forthcoming action RPG, Shadow of Mordor coming to all systems has been delayed for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 systems.

The updated release schedule for the game is as follows:

 

 

 

  • Xbox One, Playstation 4 – September 30 2014 (USA), October 03 2014 (UK)
  • PC – September 30 2014
  • Xbox 360, Playstation 3 – November 18 (USA), November 21 (UK)

The press release mentions that the delayed versions require “more time in development”. Without more details, I can only speculate that the team are struggling to find a balance between graphics and performance on the older systems.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor delivers a dynamic game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will. The game begins on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate. Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance. Based on the player’s actions with the in-game Nemesis System, every enemy encountered is distinct and can evolve to become a personal archenemy through the course of the game.  As Talion’s personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power and confront the ultimate nemesis.
