Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor had a fantastic showing at E3 this year and we can’t wait to get our hands on it come October. For now though, we’ll continue to keep sharing all the latest details with you, starting with a brand new screenshot posted on the game’s official Twitter account which teases a new, darker location of Mordor. You can view the screenshot in the featured image spot of this article.
In addition, for those of you that like replayability in your games, Shadow of Mordor’s very unique AI system will offer plenty of reasons for you to come back and play the game once you’ve finished it the first time. According to the developer’s at Monolith, “every” playthrough will introduce new Uruk Captains for you to hunt down and either kill or bend to your will.
@FamiliarZulu Yes, every playthrough will have new Uruk Captains to face.

The Nemesis System is probably one of the most “next-gen” gaming features we’ve seen thus far. It brings a whole new level of dynamics to open world titles that make your enemy encounters much more personal. It’ll be exciting to see how it all works when the game releases on October 7th of this year. The Nemesis System is probably something that would work really well in the Assassin’s Creed games as well.
