Warner Bros. Interactive has released a pretty impressive eight-minute gameplay walkthrough of cross-generational action title Middle-Earth Shadow of Mordor.

Developed by Monolith using the Nemesis System, the new The Lord of the Rings prequel is shaping up rather nicely, sharing much than a slight resemblance to Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed franchise.

Players will assume the role of Talion, a ranger who loses everything on the night of Sauron's return to Mordor. As Talion's personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him.

Check out the gameplay for yourself in the video below.
