About Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

An all-new tale set in the J.R.R. Tolkein's fantasy universe, Shadow of Mordor takes place between Bilbo Baggin's adventures (The Hobbit) and those of his Nephew, Frodo (The Lord of the Rings trilogy.) Enemies you face are all "named" enemies and exist as part of the world; if they survive their encounter with you, they'll continue to grow, develop, and generally exist within the game's framework, and they'll remember you should you meet again. A singleplay action title, it's coming out some time in 2014.
