Shadow of Mordor was one of last year’s best games. It wasn’t the prettiest. It wasn’t the biggest. But, it did something nearly all AAA developers weren’t doing. It innovated.

The Nemesis system provided a welcome breath of fresh air. The feature made everyone’s game play out a bit different. There was always one war chief that you just couldn’t kill at first. As you died, he leveled up. But eventually, they all fall.

It was the Nemesis feature that pushed Shadow of Mordor to be the game of the year for many.

If you missed out on Shadow of Mordor when it released, Warner Bros. has just announced a Game of the Year Edition for it. It will release on May 5th and comes with every piece of DLC released.

Besides the base game, here’s what else you will get:

EVERY MISSION – Including The Lord of the Hunt Mission, The Bright Lord Story Mission, Guardians of the Flaming Eye Warband Mission, The Berserks Warband Mission, and more!

EVERY RUNE – Including the Hidden Blade Rune, the Deadly Archer Rune, the Flame of Anor Rune, and the Rising Storm Rune.

EVERY SKIN – Including the Dark Ranger Skin and the Captain of the Watch Skin.

EVERY CHALLENGE MODE – Including the Test of Power Challenge Mode, the Test of Speed Challenge Mode, the Test of Wisdom Challenge Mode, and the Endless Challenge Mode.

If you’re interested in all the DLC, jump in for $50. You can also pick up the base game for around $25 at Amazon. Either way, you won’t be disappointed.

If you do end up picking Shadow of Mordor up, don’t forget to check out Photo Mode. Check out the video below to see what all you can do.

Photo Mode is a feature more developers need to use. It’s been a staple for racing games, and it’s nice to see it in other genres now.
