Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor won't include multiplayer co-op

Monolith Production's upcoming role-playing game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor features a single-player campaign, but no multiplayer co-op, the studio confirmed in a comment on its official Twitter account.

"Alas, no co-op," reads a statement from a company representative, responding to a question regarding their plans for the game. "Shadow of Mordor is being crafted wholly as a single-player experience."

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is the second Tolkien-based title from Monolith. The studio released the console-focused multiplayer online battle arena Guardians of Middle-earth in 2012.

Shadow of Mordor is scheduled to arrive on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows PC this year.
