Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor’s E3 Trailer Showcases the Nemesis System

Revealed in a press release published for this year’s E3 on Tuesday, June 10, Monolith Productions and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have unveiled a brand-new gameplay trailer of the forthcoming Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor .

Touching on the game’s featured Nemesis System, the trailer goes in depth on how the stats, appearance and personality of each nemesis will be completely different for every player–no two players will have an exact same Uruk. Basically, the Nemesis System generates unique, dynamically created enemies.

Shadow of Morder takes place a couple of millennia before the events of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, back when the dark lord Sauron was still running amok with his golden ring of power and seemingly endless hordes of orks.

The game is said to not be technically part of the Lord of the Rings canon, but story elements will align in someway. We’ve already established that Shadow of Mordor is its own story , set within the gap between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings .

In Shadow of Mordor , you play as Talion, a ranger of Gondor and a guardian of the Black Gates into Mordor. All is going fine, until Sauron shows up and proceeds to kill you and everyone you know and love. Luckily, you are resurrected by a mysterious, undying spirit–a wraith. With this new found power and this wraith to help you at your side, you then scurry off to Mordor with an aim to exact revenge.
