La Terre du Milieu : L'Ombre du Mordor (Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor) est un jeu vidéo d'action-aventure développé par Monolith Productions et édité par la Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment sorti le 3 octobre 2014 sur PlayStation 4, Xbox One et Windows, et le 18 novembre 2014 sur PlayStation 3 et Xbox 360.

Le jeu remporte le prix du meilleur jeu d'action-aventure lors des Game Awards 2014.

Synopsis

L'histoire se déroule entre les événements des récits Le Hobbit et Le Seigneur des anneaux écrits par J. R. R. Tolkien.

Gardien gondorien de la Porte Noire du Mordor, Talion et sa famille sont brutalement attaqués par une bande d'orques menée par l'un des plus puissants lieutenants de Sauron, la Main Noire.

Maudit par celui qui lui a ôté la vie, Talion est condamné à errer entre le monde des vivants et celui des morts. Mais aidé par un mystérieux spectre qui, comme lui, erre entre la vie et la mort, il se voit offrir l'occasion de venger sa famille et de se libérer de sa malédiction.

Sa quête le conduira sur les terres du Mordor, royaume de Sauron, où une guerre sans pitié oppose les tribus humaines qui y ont trouvé refuge aux orques, féroces combattants du Seigneur des Ténèbres. Talion devra s'infiltrer dans le pays noir et y traquer celui qui est responsable de sa mort. Mais sa quête de vengeance risque de prendre un tournant inattendu.

Façon de jouer (Gameplay)

Le gameplay du jeu se montre trés semblable à la serie Assassin's Creed. On y retrouve des élements comme les tours pour débloquer des parties de carte, et aussi le système de combat. Celui ci comporte comme Assassin's Creed des attaques stealth avec un poignard, le combat avec l'épée, et l'arme à distance, qui est un arc. Chacun de ces armes peut étre équipée de runes, qui leur attribuent des abilités spéciales, comme par exemple une augmentation de dégâts. Ces runes sont obtenues en tuant un Uruk de l'armée de Sauron haut placé.

Système Nemesis

Le système Nemesis permet au joueur d'identifier les Uruks classés pour les chasser. Nemesis montre aussi d'autres informations, comme leur points forts et points faibles.

Dans La Terre du Milieu : L'Ombre du Mordor, vous incarnez Talion, un ranger vaillant dont la famille est assassinée la nuit où Sauron et son armée reviennent au Mordor, juste avant qu'il ne soit tué aussi. Ramené à la vie par un esprit de vengeance et doté de capacités spectrales, Talion s'aventure dans le Mordor et jure de détruire tous ceux qui lui ont fait du tort. Au cours de la vengeance personnelle de Talion, vous découvrirez la vérité à propos de l'esprit qui vous fascine, apprendrez les origines des anneaux de pouvoir et ferez finalement face à votre véritable ennemi.

Mordor

Le Mordor est le royaume des Uruks, qui s'étend du sud-est de la Terre du Milieu à l'est du Gondor, de l'Ithilien et de la Grande Rivière. Il a été décidé que le Mordor serait la forteresse de Sauron en raison des massifs montagneux l'entourant de trois côtés, créant une forteresse naturelle contre ses ennemis. Les monts Cendrés sont situés au nord et les monts de l'Ombre à l'ouest et au sud. La seule entrée possible dans le Mordor se situe au coin nord-ouest : la vallée profonde d'Udûn protégée par la Porte Noire du Mordor. La Tour Sombre de Sauron, la forteresse de Barad-dûr, était située au pied des monts Cendrés.

La plupart de la terre est constitué de débris volcaniques à cause de l'activité de la Montagne du Destin, mais certaines parcelles peuvent être cultivées et les esclaves du Seigneur des Ténèbres y ont fait pousser de la nourriture pour son armée.

Géographie

Le Mordor se délimite par toute une chaîne de montagnes, excepté à l'Ouest. Le nom des Montagnes du Nord sont : Les Montagnes de Cendres ( Ash Moutains ). Le nom des Montagnes du Sud sont : Les Montagnes de l'Ombre ( Moutains of Shadow ). Au Nord-Ouest se situe le Morannon ( Ou Porte Noire. ). A l'Ouest se dresse Minas Morgul . La Montagne du Destin et Barad-Dûr sont dans la partie Ouest. Peu de cités, villes ou autre peuples le Mordor , il n'y en a quasiment qu'au frontière. Tout ce qui fait partie de l'Ouest du Mordor s'appelle : Le Plateau de Gorgoroth. Et la partie Est : Lichlad. Dans le Mordor se situe aussi la Mer de Nurnen, située vers le Sud.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is a next-generation, third-person action game set in Middle-earth that explores an original story of vengeance and redemption.

In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, gamers take on the role of Talion, a valiant ranger whose family is slain in front of him the night Sauron and his army return to Mordor, moments before his own life is taken. Resurrected by a Spirit of vengeance and empowered with Wraith abilities, Talion ventures into Mordor and vows to destroy those who have wronged him. Through the course of his personal vendetta, Talion uncovers the truth of the Spirit that compels him, learns the origins of the Rings of Power and ultimately confronts his true nemesis.

Every enemy that players face is a unique individual, differentiated by their personality, strengths and weaknesses. Through the Nemesis System, enemy relationships and characteristics are shaped by player actions and decisions to create personal archenemies that remember and adapt to the player and are distinct to every gameplay session. Gamers are able to craft their own battles, enemies and rewards within the dynamic world that remembers and adapts to their choices, delivering a unique experience to every player.

The Monolith Productions team has collaborated on Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor with Middle-earth Enterprises, Peter Jackson and the artists at Weta Workshop to ensure that the settings, characters and story align authentically within canon.


Wikipedia:

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is an open world action-adventure video game set within Tolkien's legendarium, developed by Monolith Productions and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Officially announced in November 2013, it was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in September 2014 and released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November 2014.

The story of the game takes place between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The players control Talion, a ranger who was killed by the Black Hand of Sauron. Talion's spirit merged with the wraith of the Elf Lord Celebrimbor, and together they try to avenge the death of their loved ones. Players can engage in melee combat, and utilize some of the wraith abilities to fight against enemies. The game uses the Nemesis System, which allows the artificial intelligence of non-playable characters to remember the death of the game's protagonist and react accordingly.

The game's development began in 2011. In order to create an accurate environment and be consistent with the books written by Tolkien, the developer consulted several people from Warner Bros., and Peter Jackson, the director of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film series. In addition, the team received assistance from Weta Workshop, who gave advice to the team in creating special effects. Monolith focused on the development of the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, while the development of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions was outsourced to Behaviour Interactive. The port to Linux and OS X was done by Feral Interactive.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor received critical acclaim upon release. Most praise directed at its combat, open-world design, the game's lore, and the Nemesis System, which most critics agreed was the best part of the game. Some criticism was aimed at the game's story and boss battles. The game marked the biggest launch for a game based upon The Lord of the Rings universe, and would go on to win several awards from video gaming publications. Two post-release downloadable content, Lord of the Hunt and The Bright Lord, were released in December 2014 and February 2015 respectively.

Gameplay

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is a third-person open world video game, where the player controls a Ranger by the name of Talion who seeks revenge on the forces of Sauron after his family, including his wife, are killed. Though Talion is mortally felled in the game's introduction, the wraith of the Elven Lord Celebrimbor is able to use his power to keep Talion alive, along with gifting him wraith-like abilities to exact his revenge. Missions in the game feature main story missions that follow Talion's quest for revenge, side missions that involve following Gollum as to find artifacts that are tied to Celebrimbor's past, missions to free the human slaves that have been captured by the Uruk armies and forced to work for Sauron, and additional quests to help forge new abilities for Talion's sword, bow, and dagger. The player also has the freedom to pursue side quests and roam around Mordor, with special activities to collect specific flora or to hunt certain creatures, or to find old artifacts or Elvish seals. Completing quests earns the player a number of rewards: experience points that are used to unlock new abilities for the player from both Talion's ranger and Celebrimbor's wraith skills, a Power value that allows the player to access more powerful abilities to unlock, and an in-game currency that the player can use to improve Talion's health, wraith skill capacity, or forge new slots on his weapons to add additional runes (as described in the Nemesis System below).

In completing missions, the player can have Talion engage in melee, ranged combat, and stealth approaches, with some missions rewarding the player more for completing the mission in a specific manner. Talion's ranger abilities are enhanced through Celebrimbor, allowing the player to mix combat with special focus-based attacks; these latter attacks can be used to slow time down while aiming with the bow, drain focus out of an enemy foe, or, later in the game, brand the foe to become an ally of Talion. The combat system uses an attack-chain system that enables the player to perform special moves after building the chain to a large enough value, such as instantly draining a foe of focus or performing an area focus attack. Stealth is a critical element in some missions; several areas are considered Strongholds and should Talion's presence be discovered, an alarm will sound and more Uruks will arrive to try to kill him.

A core feature of Shadows of Mordor is the Nemesis system. The game tracks a number of specially tagged Uruks as part of Sauron's armies, who will lead the other Uruks in battle. Defeating these leaders will help to weaken Sauron's army, and these leaders will drop a rune which the player can install on Talion's weapons to provide additional buffs in battle. Alternative, being killed by a leader will cause the current mission to be cancelled and the player returned to a safe point to continue exploring, and the leader will gain additional power, making him more difficult to defeat in the next encounter. Further, such deaths are tracked through online servers, and the player's friends on the various network services (such as via Steam friends for Windows players) will be notified of this death and be offered the chance to exact revenge on the Uruk, which if successful will give rewards to both the original player and the victorious friend. The leader Uruk will have a range of strengths and weaknesses, the latter that can be exploited in combat to quickly weaken and defeat the leader. The player can gain knowledge of these through finding intelligence, either by locating papers with the information, speaking to rescued slaves, or draining marked Uruks for this.Being able to exploit such weaknesses in defeating the leader will gain a better quality rune and more experience points in this manner. Once the player gains the ability to brand Uruks, they can brand these leaders and convert portions of Sauron's army to their side. At this point, the player can use the Nemesis system to trigger infighting within the Uruk forces which they can then directly participate in, helping to weaken the army further. Uruks that survive their encounter with Talion will remember this when Talion combats them again; for example, an Uruk who was thrown into a fire by Talion might want revenge on him for being disfigured.

Synopsis

Setting

The game takes place in the 60-year gap between the events of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings. The family of Talion (voiced and motion captured by Troy Baker), a ranger of Gondor responsible for guarding the Black Gate of Mordor, is killed by the armies of Sauron (Steven Blum), but Talion is revived with "wraith-like abilities" and heads into Mordor to exact his revenge. Mordor is not yet a barren wasteland in this story. The player will encounter Gollum (voiced by Liam O'Brien). Talion discovers that the wraith who revived him is Celebrimbor (voiced by Alastair Duncan), the greatest Elven smith master of the Second Age, who also seeks revenge against Sauron.

Plot

Talion, a captain, serves within a garrison stationed at the Black Gate of Mordor. The garrison is attacked by Sauron's Orc forces led by three Black Númenórean captains; the Hammer of Sauron (John DiMaggio), the Tower of Sauron (J. B. Blanc), and their leader, the Black Hand of Sauron (Nolan North). Talion, his wife Loreth (Laura Bailey), and his adult son, Dirhael, are captured and ritually sacrificed by the Black Hand in an attempt to summon the wraith of the Elf Lord Celebrimbor. However, Celebrimbor (who suffers from amnesia due to his centuries as a wraith) instead merges with Talion, preventing him from dying alongside his family. Talion and Celebrimbor then depart to both uncover Celebrimbor's identity—increasing his/their power—and avenge the death of Talion's family.

Over the course of their travels, Talion and Celebrimbor encounter Gollum multiple times, who is wandering Mordor in search of his "Precious" (The One Ring). Gollum possesses the ability to see and speak with Celebrimbor due to his prior contact with the One Ring, and pledges to serve the "Bright Master". Hoping that Celebrimbor might lead him to the One Ring, Gollum leads Celebrimbor to relics of his past, each of which restore parts of his lost memories. Celebrimbor gradually recalls how Sauron, disguised as Annatar, the Lord of Gifts, deceived him into forging the Rings of Power. Celebrimbor ultimately assisted Sauron in forging the One Ring, but was able to steal it from him. Celebrimbor proclaimed himself the Bright Lord of Mordor and raised an army of Orcs against Sauron. However, the Ring ultimately betrayed Celebrimbor and returned to Sauron. A victorious Sauron then punished Celebrimbor by executing his wife and daughter before finally killing him with his own smithing hammer.

In his search for the Black Hand, Talion allies himself with Hirgon, a ranger deserter who leads a community of Gondorian outcasts choosing to settle in Mordor, and Ratbag the Coward (Phil LaMarr), an Orc who offers to bring Talion closer to the Black Hand in exchange for his assistance in climbing Mordor's military hierarchy. Talion helps Ratbag ascend the ranks to the level of warchief by killing each of his immediate superiors, finally becoming Warchief himself. Talion then goes after the other Warchiefs in Udun, weakening Sauron's forces in that area. Soon enough, Hirgon has a plan to draw out the Black Captains. Using acquired grog and blasting powder, Talion helps the Outcasts destroy a statue dedicated to Sauron. Instead of the Black Hand answering the "message", the Hammer of Sauron is sent, promptly executing Ratbag for not answering his duties to kill the ranger. Talion and The Hammer then face off, with packs of Uruk joining the fight. Eventually, Talion manages to kill The Hammer.

Talion is then sought out by the warrior Lithariel, the daughter of Queen Marwen (Claudia Black), who claims to be able to assist Celebrimbor with his mission. Marwen is the ruler of Núrn, a kingdom of sea raiders located in the south of Mordor. She uses prophetic powers to guide Talion and Celebrimbor to another of Celebrimbor's relics. Talion also gets help from a Dwarf hunter named Torvin, teaching Talion the ways of the hunt to dominate Caragors and Graugs (beasts native to Mordor), eventually fighting a massive Graug from Torvin's past who killed Torvin's hunting partner, later revealed to be his brother. Later, Marwen advises them to use Celebrimbor's powers to take control of an army of orcs and other beasts, using them to lead an assault against Sauron. Talion eventually realizes that the wizard Saruman is possessing Marwen, and assists Lithariel in freeing her from his control. Talion, however, still carries out Saruman's plan, leading an army of mind-controlled orcs in an assault against the Black Hand's stronghold at Ered Glamhoth. However, rather than the Black Hand, Talion finds the Tower of Sauron waiting for him. The Tower mockingly taunts Talion that Celebrimbor chose him as a host and can free him at any time and offers the elf a place at Sauron's side. Refusing the offer, the two battle and Talion emerges victorious after viciously stabbing the Tower to death with his son's sword. Afterwards, Celebrimbor confesses that the Tower told the truth and promises to let Talion join his family in death if he wishes, once the Black Hand is slain.

Talion then travels to the Black Gate for a final confrontation with the Black Hand. The Black Hand quickly incapacitates him with a spell that also restores the last of Celebrimbor's memories. He then kills himself as part of a ritual that forces Celebrimbor to depart from Talion and merge with himself. This allows Sauron to possess the Black Hand's body and incarnate in physical form. However, Celebrimbor is able to briefly paralyze Sauron from within, allowing Talion to destroy Sauron's physical form. With the Black Hand dead, Celebrimbor wishes to depart for Valinor. Talion instead convinces him to stay and attempt to overthrow Sauron. Gazing at Mount Doom, Talion declares his intention to forge a new Ring of Power.
