Inside the Story of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

From the very beginning, all of us here at Monolith Productions knew we had to go to great lengths to make Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PS4 and PS3 as authentic as possible. From the landscape, to the weapons, to the inhabitants, to the architecture — everything required extreme attention to detail, and our main story was no exception.


Inside the Story of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

To make the story of Talion and the mysterious Wraith he’s connected to a reality, we worked with Lead Designer and Writer Christian Cantamessa (Red Dead Redemption). And to bring our Ranger of The Black Gate to life, we could think of none better than the esteemed Troy Baker (The Last of Us, BioShock Infinite, Batman: Arkham City). Together, we’re shaping this new tale set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

Check out our latest trailer above, which shows a glimpse of what it was like on set, and look closely for the first glimpse of a beloved Middle-earth character, and a few new faces.

Both Troy and Christian had a tremendous impact on Shadow of Mordor, and we can’t wait to share it with the world. Be sure to keep your eyes here on PlayStation.Blog for more updates.

  • Any chance that this might get a Collector’s Edition still? I want one for this game so bad.

  • This game looks amazing..and soon i will find out if the gameplay is just as amazing..when GAMEFLY delivers it to me..lol

    Day one for me. I love everything I’ve seen so far. :)

  • Oh no way,Troy Baker is the voice of the protagonist….ha awesome,also looks like Troy is embracing Delsin’s visual lol.

    Anyway this game had my interest since the 1st video released and now its a must-buy…good job making the only good Lord of Rings game in years.Last one I remember was on PS2.

  • Not a big fan of Lord of the Rings, but this game looks outstanding. Really need to pick this up on release.

  • Do Troy Baker and Nolan North have to voice EVERYTHING? I feel like its just developers making safe casting choices instead of taking risk with new, fresher talent.

  • Really excited for this, I hope it does well so we can see more LOTR games. is there a Collector’s Edition though? It’d be cool to get a figure of Talion or something.

  • I truly hope this doesn’t suck. I’ve been a LOTR fan long before the movies even came out, but I have yet to play a decent game of it. I’m gonna have to keep my hype level to a minimum for this one, but I’ve definitely got my eye on it.

  • Dang I’m super excited for this! October.. November.. and I’m sure December are going to be some insane gaming months. Better start saving!
