Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Walkthrough

Gamespot has posted on their Youtube channel a Gameplay Walkthrough video of the exciting new game MIDDLE-EARTH: Shadow of Mordor. The video is thorough but brief and does it’s job to wet your appetite. Needles to say, I’m already pre-ordering this bad boy for the PS4 on Amazon (Click here to do so now). The game rocks impressive visuals rendered by a next-gen engine, and it’s completely noticeable from the tiniest details on the main character to the lightening effects. MIDDLE-EARTH: Shadow of Mordor will be available on PC, Xbone, 360, PS3, and Ps4.

The story is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
