Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer Monolith Productions has today announced that Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be hitting shipping to consoles and PC come October 7th, complete with a pre-order bonus pack as well.

Fans eager to get the drop on Sauron will find that pre-ordering secures your "Dark Ranger" exclusive pack, complete with a Dark Ranger character skin that "embodies Talion's darker side." The pack also includes a "Test of Power" challenge mode that will face you against Sauron's captains, where defeating them will earn you powerful runes to gain a head start, and access to an exclusive leaderboard for the challenge mode.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor delivers a dynamic game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will. The game begins on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate. Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance. As Talion’s personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power and confront the ultimate nemesis.
A story trailer was also revealed today, showing off the quite devastating effects that our main protagonist Talion has and a bit of a backstory as well. Check it out below.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be available on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Ring stolen - Sauron wants you dead - gather a party - walk a lot - throw ring in volcano - use pidgeotto's fly ability.
