Talion Challenged Uruk Shadow of Mordor

‘Middle-Earth: Shadow Of Mordor’ Players Have Killed A Lot Of Uruks

If you’ve played Monolith’s Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, chances are you’ve run into your fair share of Uruks. Well, thanks to an infographic released by the Shadow of Mordor developer, players can see just how many they’ve dispatched.

Released via Shadow of Mordor’s Facebook page, Monolith breaks down an exhaustive list of stats in a detailed infographic. Topping the list are the 5.65 billion Uruks players have killed as Talion, the fallen Gondorian Ranger. This number dwarfs pretty much every other metric, though for a video game the others seem pretty daunting as well.

One of the crowning achievements of Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is its “Nemesis” System. This is engine in the game that creates unique Uruks for you to fight against, randomly generating them as the game goes along. This makes each playthrough of Shadow of Mordor unique and entertaining. It should come to no shock, given how robust the engine is, that 95.6 million unique Nemeses have been created by the game, giving players plenty of Uruks to match up against.

Other Shadow of Mordor stats of note are the amount of Uruks and beasts dominated. Over 200 million Uruks have been dominated by players. The dominating of wills by Talion/Wraith-Talion is a major element of the gameplay, and it allows the player to control Uruks, from the lowest rank all the way up to controlling the Warchiefs in Sauron’s army.

Shadow of Mordor is an entertaining game, pitting players in Mordor right after the events of The Hobbit. Sauron has returned and your character, Talion, has been brought back to life by a wraith after he and his family are massacred at the Black Gate. You must discover the identity of the wraith and avenge your family.

Monolith’s Middle-Earth game has been praised for its extremely tight combat and pakouring, soundtrack and the tech behind the game since its release. The Inquisitr previously reported on the first major DLC to come to Shadow of Mordor, named “The Bright Lord.” In the DLC, players will be able to square off against the Dark Lord himself. Monolith has stated that this DLC will be more difficult than the base game, which by many accounts had a lackluster ending.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor was one of 2014’s best games, and with Monolith supporting the game with DLC into 2015, players will find many more hours of enjoyment out traversing the wastes of Mordor. How many Uruks have you dispatched? Sound off with your Shadow of Mordor escapades in the comments below.
