Mordor nemesis

Shadow of Mordor was a surprise success last year. It had the incredible Nemesis system which actually managed to do what so many studios try to achieve – innovative gameplay. Of course we knew that they would have to do more, with that universe and with the Nemesis system. Well, it looks like they’re ready to get that ball rolling.

Over on parent company Time Warner’s hiring portal (thanks GameSpot), there are now 26 openings to go help Monolith make a new game. Just check out the range of what they want:

  • Producer
  • Production Assistant
  • Senior Artist, World
  • Associate Software Engineer
  • Senior Artist, Lighting
  • Artist, World
  • Senior Designer, Missions
  • Lead Designer, World
  • Lead Artist, Concept
  • Associate Software Engineer, Gameplay
  • Art Lead, Animation
  • Senior Designer, Social
  • Producer
  • Staff Character Artist
  • Lead Designer, UI
  • System/Network Technician
  • Technical Art Director
  • Senior Software Engineer, Graphics
  • Staff Software Engineer, Graphics
  • Senior Project Manager
  • Senior Software Engineer, AI
  • Staff Software Engineer, Engine
  • Lead Designer, Missions
  • Staff Artist, World
  • Cinematic Director
  • Senior Artist, UI

It’s sometimes staggering to think just how many people go into making games – this isn’t even close to the full team that they’ll need, but at least they’re grabbing people to improve the open world missions and other aspects of the upcoming game. It looks to me like they’re working towards a new Shadow or Mordor game, particularly because it’s mentioned as a selling point in each of the vacancies.

I am excited to see where they go next with the game. The Nemesis system was such a brilliant concept, one that no other game has really topped in terms of immersion and unique gameplay for each player. Everyone had a different Nemesis and I loved that I could actually remember how my enemies rose through the ranks. Here’s hoping we see more soon – and if not for a sequel to Shadow of Mordor, perhaps one for No One Lives Forever.

            Perhaps Mehgolas is in it too? As long as Mehgli, son of Mehn is in it, I’m happy!

    I really did not enjoy the game for me it was a BIG let down. Gameplay was fun sure pretty much a Batman clone and killing orcs was aways insane fun but the game lacks in the story department sooo much!

    That’s just cruel, throwing out the NOLF name like that.

    I would love it if they can add more bigger scale battles like they did near the end of the game. Also I hope the final boss battle has a little more substance.

      The entire map is about the size of Novigrad, but the kill moves and gameplay is awesome

        Yeah. I’ve spent about 2/3 hours fucking about in it with OVG but not played the actual story. Looks awesome. It’s sitting on my shelf, just need to finish DA: I then will get at it, after Witcher III 0_O

          I need to still get DA: I one day, but it’s still ass expensive on Origin. The wife is playing through the Van Helsing series now, so it’s seriously putting me in the mood for some more RPG fun.
          But there are too many games now.
          And Fallout 4 is coming.
          And I just bought 4 games on the Steam Sale.
          Oh woe is me. ๐Ÿ˜‰
