The other day, a trailer went up for Middle-Earth: Shadows of Mordor. I ignored it, 'cause it's a Lord of the Rings game, and when have those ever been really good?
Never, that's when.
Today, I stumbled across this article over at Eurogamer in which an Assassin's Creed dev is quoted as saying "seriously, can someone tell me how Assassin's Creed 2 code and assets are in this Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor game? This is *my* code in that game!"
And I thought, well, let's take a look.
Yup. That totally, one-hundred-percent looks like Assassin's Creed wall-climbing and line-running. It also looks like a Lord of the Rings game that's pretty awesome!
