MID­DLE MUR­DER MAY­HEM

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

Mid­dle Earth: Shadow of Mor­dor – PS4 and XBOX ONE – £49.99 – www.game.co.uk THE last part of Peter Jack­son’s Hob­bit tril­ogy isn’t due out in cin­e­mas un­til De­cem­ber – but if you’re han­ker­ing for a fix of Mid­dle Earth, you’re in luck.

New video game Shadow of Mor­dor is set be­tween the events of The Hob­bit and the Lord of the Rings saga as you play ‘Tal­ion’, a ranger tasked with guard­ing the Black Gate that serves as the en­try­way into Mor­dor.

It’s just a case of mur­der­ing your way across the land­scape, and the vi­su­als are truly breathtaking.

But the best thing about this game is the Neme­sis sys­tem. If you fail to kill an orc cap­tain, he’ll go off, rise in power and skill, then hunt you down and mur­der you. So be pre­pared for a tough time when it comes to epic, venge­ful bat­tles.
