Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor announced

shadowmordorWarner Bros. has announced that F.E.A.R. developer Monolith Productions is working on a third person action game for next-gen.

Set between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Shadow of Mordor aims  to deliver an “original, dark story of retribution”. The game will follow Talion, a  ranger who, along with his  family, was killed by Sauron’s armies. After being  resurrected by a Spirit of vengeance, Talion sets out on a quest for, um, well, vengeance. Funny how that works.

You should probably expect to journey into Mordor sometime in 2015.
