New Screenshots arrive for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Back in mid-November, Warner Bros. announced a next-generation, third-person action game set in Middle Earth called Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Today they have released some new screenshots so you can take a look at how the game is coming along in its development

The game is an original story in which players will take on the role of a ranger, Talion, whose family was killed in front of him moments before his own life is taken. Yes, that means you're playing as a character who is dead, but resurrected by a Spirit of Vengeance and has been given Wraith-like abilities.

"In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor,players will explore the dark and very personal theme of vengeance in a world where decisions have a consequence, and those consequences persist even after death," said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "The game introduces new gameplay mechanics to the action genre, creating opportunities for emergent and customized gameplay that will be rewarding for players."

The game is in development for the Xbox One and Xbox 360, the Playstation 3 and 4, and Windows PC. Here are the new screenshots to check out.
