Responding to fan questions, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor developer Monolith Productions has casually confirmed that the forthcoming open-world Lord of the Rings licensed title will in fact be a single-player only experience, forgoing the allure of competitive multiplayer component, but not offering cooperative play either (thanks Gamespot).

The move is somewhat surprising, Developer Monolith has a lot of past experience with multiplayer games, from all the way back with the original Blood, through AvP 2, F.E.A.R. and more recently Gotham City Imposters and Guardians of Middle-earth.

The developer has also confirmed the target platforms via Twitter with a Wii U offering notably absent; though much less surprising given the console's disappointing sales numbers.

Shadow of Mordor is in the works for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

the game play stuff from the last thread on the game looked quite good so i dont mind if its just SP.

I played lotr war in the north just SP and still had fun - it could of been a better game but it wasnt bad. I haven't played Guardians of Middle-Earth tho but looking at the game play and some of the mechanics like possession of enemy characters to use in other missions it looks like MP would be difficult to implement

Good. Way too many games waste resources on trying to get a half-assed MP attached.

Could be the best game Monolith have done since Shogo MAD.

MAYBE they could do a co-op thing later like when you do assassinations if you have taken control of npc's another player could jump into one and help out but other than that forget MP
