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.
