Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Coming One Week Earlier

October is starting to thin out, as Warner Bros. has announced an earlier release date for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. This leaves October 7 now two titles lighter, after Dragon Age: Inquisition was delayed until November.

This is good news for everyone still releasing on October’s first Tuesday (Alien: Isolation from Sega, NBA 2K15 from 2K Sports, and NBA Live 15 from EA, Driveclub from Sony, and Project Spark from Microsoft). For more on Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, check out our preview from E3

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will now be out on September 30 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.


Our Take
This is good news, even if it’s just a one week shift. October 7 was too heavy, and it’s looking a bit more manageable now. I’m excited for Shadow of Mordor after playing it at E3, and getting it a week early pleases me greatly.
