Shadow of Mordor is Single Player Only, “Takes Place Entirely in Mordor” Lachlan Williams January 30, 2014 Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Monolith’s upcoming third person action RPG, seems like a very interesting take on Tolkein’s Middle-Earth. Placing you in the role of the Ranger Talion, players will stealth, stalk, and kill their way through Sauron’s armies on a quest for vengeance. And, especially exciting for us here at OnlySP, Monolith have revealed that Shadow of Mordor will be a completely single player experience. @TobiasKarlsson_ Alas, no co-op. Shadow of Mordor is being crafted wholly as a single-player experience. — Shadow of Mordor (@middleearthgame) January 23, 2014 It seems like the game will not feature any locations in Middle-Earth other than Mordor, either, with the official Twitter account specifying that Mordor is the only setting. @Remus88Romulus The game takes place entirely in Mordor. — Shadow of Mordor (@middleearthgame) January 24, 2014 Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is coming to PS3, Xbox 360, PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime this year. We will be bringing you all the latest details on Shadow of Mordor when we get them, so make sure you keep your eyes on this space.
