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.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is scheduled to hit the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC sometime this year (we assume).
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor delivers a dynamic game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will. The game begins on the night of Sauron's return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate. Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance. Based on the player's actions with the in-game Nemesis System, every enemy encountered is distinct and can evolve to become a personal archenemy through the course of the game. As Talion's personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power and confront the ultimate nemesis.
