New Lord of The Rings RPG – Shadow of Mordor Gameplay

A new video just surfaced showing gameplay of this brand new open world RPG that takes place in the Lord of the Rings universe. The first thing you’ll notice upon watching the gameplay is that the graphics are insane. I’m not quite sure what engine this game is being made on but nevertheless, it looks amazing.

The gameplay seems to be a mash-up of Assassin’s Creed, Skyrim, and The Witcher. There are various parkour elements that allow the player to scale walls, run across buildings and tightropes and jump down and assassinate his enemies. It’s actually extremely similar to Assassin’s Creed games. On the other hand, the combat is like a mix of The Witcher and Assassin’s Creed. You’ll be surrounded by your enemies and will have to roll, dodge, and chain together attacks to be successful in combat.

The RPG elements resemble Skyrim as well. There is a lot of choice in this game, dialogue options and which missions will open up or become available based upon what you choose to do with your character. Also introduced were some pretty cool and unique gameplay features. Such as chasing down a boss and choosing what to do with him, you can actually send him out to try and assassinate one of his leaders and the success rate of that depends on the difficulty of who he’s trying to kill.

The game is also pretty bloody and gory and surely, Lord of the Rings fans will appreciate that. Shadow of Mordor launches for the Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Look forward to this open world RPG in 2014.
