Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is an upcoming PlayStation 4 video game slated for a 2014 release. The story will take place between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, acting as a bridge between the two eras, though it is uncertain if the game will follow the film or book canon. The protagonist's name is Talion, a Gondorian Ranger stationed at the Black Gate. Talion's family is slain the night the Dark Lord Sauron and his Uruk-Hai forces return to reclaim Mordor, setting the Ranger on a quest for revenge after he is possessed and sustained from death by a mysterious Wraith.
