The action-adventure game definitely appears to take a bit of Batman and a dollop of Assassin's Creed and wraps it up in Middle-earth mythology. But yes, it looks pretty damn awesome so far as you can see below.

Resurrected by a vengeful spirit, you must now embark on a relentless vendetta against those who have wronged you. Fight through Mordor and uncover the truth of the spirit that compels you, discover the origins of the Rings of Power, build your legend and ultimately confront the evil of Sauron in this new chronicle in Middle-earth. Harness the Spirit of vengeance to inflict brutal combos while mastering powerful new skills and weaponry. Exploit the individual fears, weakness and memories of your enemies as you dismantle Sauron's forces from within. Become the most feared force in Mordor in a new chronicle set before the events of the Lord of the Rings.
