September 30, 2014Written by Jason Dunning

Now available in North America – and later this week in Europe – Warner Bros and Monolith have given us the launch trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, which you can play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions coming in November.

One big feature in Shadow of Mordor is the Nemesis System, where each enemy encounter is procedurally generated and unique to everyone, from appearance, to personality type, to strengths and weaknesses, to distinct enemy missions.

WBIE President Martin Tremblay said:

Monolith’s goal with the Nemesis System is to push the action genre forward with a unique gameplay mechanic that allows the player to experience Middle-earth in a way that is deeply personal. The team and technology powering the Nemesis System helped us develop an emotional investment between each player and their enemies, which creates a truly memorable gaming experience unlike anything that’s been done before.

To get an in-depth look at the development of Shadow of Mordor, here’s six videos all focused on the making of the game:
