    Did you know that every Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor trailer can be synced using our Palantir app? Whenever you view one of the game's trailers in Palantir, you'll be presented with relevant articles about the scene you're currently watching. For instance, when Queen Marwen comes on-screen in the video below, Palantir will display our article on her.

    All you have to do is load up and play the video, hit the "Sync now" button in the app and you're be good to go. For more information on the sync feature, please read Andy's blog.

    We've recently added a community selected sync point to the "Make Them Your Own" story trailer which you can view above. Just visit the 0:34 mark on the video, and you'll get a first glimp…

    We have an upcoming opportunity to ask Monolith's Director of Design Michael de Plater questions about Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. If you have any burning questions about the game, be it about the nemesis system, the environments of Mordor or anything else you'd like to know more about, please leave them in the comment section below.

    Naturally we'll try to have as many questions answered as we can, but keep in mind that we probably won't be able to have them all answered. We'll try our best though!

    Once the interview is done, we'll post a Q&A Expert Showcase video on this blog, so stay tuned.

    To participate, just leave your questions for Michael de Plater in the comments.

    GameInformer spoke with Monolith's senior composer Nathan Grigg and director of audio Brian Pamintuan about the score of Shadow of Mordor. They talk about how the game's music contributes to the game's rhythmic free-flow combat and overall atmosphere of the game. The interview also includes music samples, so don't miss out!
