Warner 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.
