Hands-on with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PlayStation 4

50°
1w ago - Sony Online Content Producer Rhys Sutheran went hands-on today with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PlayStation 4.

To quote: Talion - Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's central character - is a man holding a grudge , not to mention a very large sword. Having had his family murdered by Sauron's armies, seeking vengeance on those who wronged him is set to become the driving force behind Monolith Games' forthcoming Lord of the Rings spin-off when it launches on 30th September 2014 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

In preparation, we got our hands on an early build of the game to put it through its paces. Here are just a few of the ways we found that Talion can wreak his revenge...

Choose your target

As Talion enters a new area, he can survey the land for Sauron's armies and check out which of his captains control the various sections of the map. If he's encountered one of them before - or managed to wring vital information from their spineless foot soldiers - he can check out their strengths and weaknesses, see where they can usually be found and start planning his attack.

Dominate the weak

In the thick of battle, Talion can grab a weakened enemy and use his wraith powers to dominate them, turning them to fight alongside the outnumbered...

50°
2w ago - Monolith Productions Community Manager Andy Salisbury revealed today at Gamescom 2014 the exclusive PlayStation pre-order extras for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.

To quote: Mordor is a treacherous land. It has no shortage of bloodthirsty warriors waiting to take their shot at you, and for those of you that pre-order Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor for PlayStation, some of the greatest champions of the Dark Lord's legions will be unleashed.

Today we're extremely proud to announce that in addition to The Dark Ranger (which includes the Dark Ranger character skin, and the Test of Power Challenge Mode), you'll get the PlayStation Legion Edition missions when you pre-order Shadow of Mordor on PlayStation 4, starting today.





In these exclusive missions, you'll go head-to-head with the deadly Blood Hunters, and the fearsome Flesh Burners, two of the most savage Warbands in all of Mordor (and two groups of hunters determined to personally bring your head to Sauron).

The Blood Hunters are master assassins, dispatched at high value targets of the Dark Lord. They travel in packs, and can smell your blood on the air. Hide from them if you choose, but they will find you. Should you eliminate them you'll earn the...

50°
3w ago - Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PS Store Team is here with what's new this week on the European PSN Game Store below, as follows:

Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept is a new stand-alone expansion to the Guerrilla Games' PS4 shooter.

Stand firm against waves of Helghast attacks with up to three friends as Intelligence Squad Alpha - a crack team of specialists attempting to intercept military transmissions that could turn the tide of the war.

On PS Vita, Metrico puts its own interesting spin on the platforming genre, tasking you with using data visualisations and infographics to solve puzzles. And on PS4, Road Not Taken is a supremely charming puzzle adventure that promises hundreds of hours of gameplay. Both are available at no additional cost to PS Plus members.

Elsewhere, there's chaotic fun in Table Top Racing and sci-fi shenanigans in The Swapper, both of which launch with PS Plus discounts. Finally, we're adding a bunch of PS4 titles into the Summer Sale so grab 'em while they're hot.

Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept PS4 Standalone Version Out Today

50°
3w ago - Community Editor Victor Zuylen announced that the Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept PS4 Standalone Version is officially out today with details below.

To quote: Today marks the release of a self-contained, standalone version of Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept. If you're yearning for some co-op action but don't have a copy of Killzone Shadow Fall, you can now obtain Intercept separately!

Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept places you and up to three of your friends on the elite VSA team known as Intelligence Squad Alpha.

Operating behind enemy lines, your team must relay intercepted military transmissions back to VSA headquarters through a set of captured Uplinks, while defending them from Helghast troops.





To keep the enemy at bay long enough to establish a secure connection, you will have to master your assigned Combat Role - Assault, Marksman, Medic or Tactician - and work together as a team.

Your AI-controlled Helghast opponents have their own sets of goals and Combat Roles, and will switch up their tactics and angles of attack when they recapture an Uplink.

The new standalone version of Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept is fully compatible with the existing expansion pack version,...
 

New Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Trailer - The Bright Master

50°
5w ago - Monolith Productions Community Manager Andy Salisbury made available a new Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor video trailer today for PS4 and PS3 fans dubbed The Bright Master below.

To quote: Today we're unveiling a brand new trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor that reveals the long-speculated identity of the Wraith, the mysterious Spirit of vengeance that has denied protagonist Talion's death.

All of us at Monolith Productions are extremely excited to announce that the Wraith is the greatest smith of Middle-earth's Second Age, the Elf-lord Celebrimbor.





Celebrimbor's impact on Middle-earth is momentous. His skilled hands forged the Rings of Power.

Celebrimbor was once a genuine challenger to The Dark Lord, and still wields the power to vanquish Sauron, especially after his defeat by The White Council at Dol Goldur. After all, they've met on the battlefield before, centuries prior to the events of Shadow of Mordor.

Celebrimbor's tale is one that we knew needed to be told. His moral pedigree is far from black and white. His downfall was terrible, and driven by pride. And, that's only scratching the surface.
