When Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor drops at the end of September, it will immerse fans of Tolkien’s world within a storyline that centres upon a resurrected ranger named Talion and his spiritual ally, Celebrimbor. Together, they will take players on a voyage through what is touted as a very interesting and well-written narrative, all the while battling Sauron’s evil forces.
It’s this relationship between the ‘living’ hero and his Wraith-like compadre that takes centre stage in the game’s most recent trailer, and by switching the focus back to their two stars, Monolith has pulled the proverbial curtain strings back and allowed disbelief to be suspended for a short period of time. The result is an interesting, but brief, interview with voice actors Troy Baker (Tyrion) and Alastair Duncan (Celebrimbor), during which they analyze and discuss their characters and the game’s general narrative.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor will mix action, adventure and the spirit realm together when it launches on September 30.
