E3 2014: Become The Ultimate Gravewalker In Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor

Warner Bros. and Monolith Productions are kicking E3 2014 off early with the official Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor E3 trailer.  Titled Gravewalker, the trailer is entirely CG, but still shows how cool this game can be.

The trailer showcases Talion on his quest for vengeance against Sauron and his army of orcs and evil men.  An immortal Wraith Spirit is bound to him by an unbreakable curse that keeps him from dying, and much like Talion, the wraith seeks revenge against Sauron.  The reasons for this remain a mystery, but it will most likely serve as a plot twist in the game.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is the second game from Monolith Productions that’s based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit books.  Shadow of Mordor is an original tale starring original characters, though prominent characters from the book such as Gollum and Sauron will appear in the game.  Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor will be at E3 2014 next week with an official release October 7 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
