Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is set to make its long-awaited debut next week, but even the most dedicated of Tolkien fans may need a refresher on what this game is about. So Monolith and Warner Bros. are offering a bit of a refresher in the form of a new video.

The new video offers valuable exposition, revealing the game's plot and offering a spotlight of Mordor's main character, Talion. It also goes into the characters you'll meet, the tools of the trade that will be on-hand, the evil forces you'll encounter, and the game's Nemesis system.

Prepare for your venture into Mordor by watching the video below. Also, stay tuned to Shacknews for our review of Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, coming very soon.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Well I just canceled my pre-order. This game is hyped and I rather wait until I know more. I can wait another year for it to be GOTY Edition for $9.99

      I really hope this ends up being as awesome as it looks. Monolith's been away for far too long.

        This might end up being the first great next-gen game. It's been a shocking year for AAA games, but some exciting titles are about to hit systems in the next couple of months.
