Warner Bros Interactive has announced that Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will release a week earlier than previously planned.

Originally slated for October 7, it's now scheduled to hit on September 30. The PC and Steam version will follow on October 2. WB chalks the change up to "hearing fans' excitement over the latest chronicle in Middle-Earth," but October 7 was shaping up to be a crowded day for releases. Even with the delay of Dragon Age: Inquisition, the date still holds NBA 2K15, DriveClub, and Alien: Isolation.

Shadow of Mordor focuses on Talon, a ranger who loses his family and his own life, but is revived by the Spirit of Vengeance. He proceeds to lay waste to orc hordes, and a "Nemesis System" lets enemies remember and respond after surviving a fight against Talion, building their own grudges.

      Fingers crossed this game is fun. I'm looking forward to it after the E3 chatter that was going around this year.

      It is almost like everyone realized having every game this year come out on October 7th was a bad idea.

      Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and then Dragon Age Inquisition. All the games I want to play this year coming out at almost the times.
