April 2, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


After a leak earlier today, Warner Bros has confirmed (via Game Informer) that Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be released on October 7th, 2014 for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. As October 7th is a Tuesday, this is the North American date, meaning Europe will likely see it on October 10th.

While the previous video showed off a lengthy cut of gameplay, this new trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow or Mordor helps to shed some light on the story of the game:

The end of the trailer also detailed The Dark Ranger pre-order bonus pack (available at participating retailers), which includes the following:

  • Dark Ranger Character Skin – Begin your own quest for vengeance with a new Dark Ranger character skin that embodies Talion’s darker side.
  • Test of Power Challenge Mode – Face Sauron’s Captains and defeat them to earn powerful Runes and gain a head start in the game.
  • Access to Leaderboards – Test your speed, skill, and strategy and measure yourself against your friends on the leaderboards.

The Shadow of Mordor companion app, Palantir, is currently available on iTunes.
