Shadow of Mordor on Xbox 360 / PS3 Delayed Until November

As reported by Eurogamer on Tuesday, September 9, Warner Bros. has announced that the upcoming Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has been delayed on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s PlayStation 3 until mid-November.

According to Eurogamer, both versions of the game need “ more time in development, ” and so they both have a new launch date of Tuesday, November 18 in America and Friday, November 21 in the UK. According to Warner Bros., the release of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game have been unaffected, which is Tuesday, September 30 in America and Friday, October 3 in the UK.

The PC release of the game has been pushed forward to Tuesday, September 30 in both Europe and the US.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor’s developer, Monolith, revealed that the Lord of the Rings spin-off will run at 1080p on Sony’s PlayStation 4, and that the studio is also aiming for the game to run at 60 frames per second.

Shadow of Mordor 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 has its own story , set within the gap between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings .

We’ll bring you more news on Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor should further information reach our ears.
