Here comes an all-new gameplay trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, the upcoming game from Warner Bros. and Monolith Productions. The video gives us a look at the powers of the Wraith, whose identity was revealed in the previous Comic-Con trailer. The game will launch on Septepber 30 for PC, PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox One and 360.
Talion and the Wraith:
After being slaughtered alongside his family at the Black Gate, Middle-earth™: Shadow of Mordor’s™ protagonist, Talion awakes as if from a long slumber and must put the pieces together as to why he has been denied the peace of death.
Talion realises he is inhabited by a mysterious Wraith, who is revealed to be Celebrimbor, the greatest Elven Smith of the Second Age. Celebrimbor was deceived by Sauron into working with him to forge the Rings of Power. After they made the Rings, Sauron betrayed and murdered Celebrimbor as well as his family in circumstances that mirror the death of Talion and his family. This connection unites the two heroes in their pursuit of the Dark Lord.
Who is Celebrimbor?
• One of the most powerful elves of the Second Age
• He was responsible for crafting the Rings of Power alongside Sauron
• Celebrimbor was murdered by Sauron. The spirits of the Elves are immortal within Middle-earth, so Celebrimbor chose not to return to the Undying Lands after he was killed
• Celebrimbor wants to destroy the Dark Lord; as Sauron does not have the One Ring, Celebrimbor can become powerful enough to challenge him within Mordor.
• The power of Celebrimbor, as the maker of the Rings, is very closely tied with the power of the Rings
More than half of the top 10 from the SteamSpy data. (3 minutes ago)
@Melmoth: Almost half of the top Steam games in 2016 are single player.. if I can count Dark Souls 3 as single player. (4 minutes ago)
That's via SteamSpy data.. estimating GTA5's 2016 revenue @ about 73 million on Steam. (6 minutes ago)
Money.. I don't know about all of it. GTA was *probably* the #2 game on Steam last year by revenue. Behind Civilization 6. Seems fair to me when you consider OW and Battlefield weren't on the platform (8 minutes ago)
guess that's where the money are, mobile and online gaming (19 minutes ago)
don't wanna attract the IRS (24 minutes ago)
I don't really get it.. considering how successful they both are. But then again they're both super successful so maybe they know best :D (26 minutes ago)
