March 4 2015 Feral Interactive announced their plans to release the award-winning action adventure game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on Linux this Spring.
“In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, players become Talion, a Gondorian Ranger of the Black Gate who is slain alongside his family on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor. Resurrected from death and inextricably linked to a Wraith Spirit, Talion ventures on a quest of vengeance and discovery to unearth why he has been denied the peace of death. Players uncover the mystery behind the Spirit that compels him, discover the origins of the Rings of Power and confront their ultimate Nemesis.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be a SteamPlay title that will run on Ubuntu 14.04 and Valve’s SteamOS, and will follow the Linux releases of Empire: Total War and XCOM: Enemy Unknown last year. The minisite is still being forged, but you can view the trailer on our YouTube channel”. Source: https://www.feralinteractive.com/en/news/459/
