Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor now due September

Middleearth Shadow of Mordor - 01

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has been delayed… unless you’re playing it on PC, in which case you’ll get it a bit earlier than expected.

Warner Bros. have announced that the 360 and PS3 versions of the game have been pushed back to mid-November, while the PS4 and Xbox One dates remain 30 September in North America and 3 October in the UK. And PC users? We’re getting it on 30 September, in both America and Europe. Which is nice, because until now I’ve been told that the PC version is due out on 3 October (or 2 October, possibly).

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor puts you in the Warg-leather boots of Talion, a ranger working together with the spirit of Celebrimbor to sow chaos and discord among Sauron’s forces. I don’t actually know if he has Warg-leather boots; it just sounded vaguely poetic. It looks like Assassin’s Creed: Middle-earth, and I’m rather looking forward to it.

30 September, everyone! That’s three weeks from today.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
