Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Game of the Year Edition
Fight through Mordor and uncover the truth of the spirit that compels you. Discover the origins of the Rings of Power, and ultimately confront the evil of Sauron in this new chronicle of Middle Earth.
During this third-person open-world game, players control a ranger by the name of Talion who seeks revenge on the forces of Sauron after his family is killed. Tavel across locations within the game through parkour, riding monsters, or accessing Forge Towers, and Harness the Spirit of vengeance to inflict brutal combos while mastering powerful new skills and weaponry.
The game takes place during the 60-year gap between the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings at the Black Gate of Mordor and inside Mordor itself, which is not yet the barren wasteland it becomes.
“It’s got great free-flowing combat and a good-sized, good-looking open world full of Lord of the Rings lore to find, but what makes it special is what’s going on in the background: an intriguing hierarchy of enemies that gives every victory and defeat extra meaning.” – IGN
