No Multiplayer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Modor

Monolith Productions has confirmed that Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will not include multiplayer.

This news was revealed via Twitter: "Alas, no co-op. Shadow of Mordor is being crafted wholly as a single-player experience."

The studio also released the full list of platforms the game would be released on: PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Notably, it will not be coming to WiiU.

An action/adventure prequel set in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth, Shadow of Mordor is a prequel of sorts to the events of Lord of the Rings. Players will play as Talion, a Ranger with Wraith-like abilities, as he fights through the ashy, orc-infested land of Mordor. Developer Monolith Productions previously developed 2012's MOBA game Guardians of Middle-earth.

Monolith previously revealed an exciting 8-minute long gameplay video, which is definitely worth a look:

While it is clearly derivative of such titles as Batman: Arkham City and Assassin's Creed, Shadow of Mordor looks like a pretty damn rad game in its own right. I think it'll be worth keeping an eye on this one.
