Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Trailer Lets You “Forge Your Nemesis”

October 3, 2014 Written by Alex Co

Warner Bros. has released a new video for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and it lets you see things from the perspective of an Uruk. 

Completely different from the usual game trailer where the protagonist is seen disposing of his/her foes, the “Forge Your Nemesis” trailer lets players watch the rise of a single Uruk as he ascends within Sauron’s army and becomes game protagonist, Talon’s personal nemesis.

This “Nemesis” system is one of the unique game mechanics developer Monolith has infused in Shadow of Mordor, which is one of the high spots in our review of the action adventure title.

Are you liking Shadow of Mordor’s Nemesis system so far? And do you think this is something other studios will “borrow?”
