Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor gets a photo mode — let's see your Orc decapitations

An update released today for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Monolith's Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor adds a new photo mode to the game, letting players to take custom screenshots of Talion slicing up orcs, collecting flowers, riding Graugs and more.

Once enabled, players can stop the action at (almost) any time to snap a photo with a click of the left analog stick. Players have good control of the camera and settings like zoom, distance and depth of field. Photo mode lets budding Middle-earth photographers apply filters to warm and cool scenes, add film grain, textures and other visual effects as well as overlay borders and logos.

For a selection of shots we've taken while experimenting with Shadow of Mordor's photo mode, check out the gallery above. Your own contributions are encouraged in the comments.
