[Update #4] Surprise, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Gets a Photo Mode

Update # 4: PC owners can now take part in the picture taking madness.

Update #3: A tutorial video has been released, showing fans how to properly use the new feature.


Update #2: Sorry I was wrong it seems there is no way to take the in-game screenshot on the Xbox One.

Update: It turns out the new feature is available for the Xbox One version as well. Monolith Productions dropped a 600MB update on PS4 and a 700MB update for Xbox One which included Photo Mode but also fixed various bugs in the game.

Original Story as follows:

Yep, you read that right Middle-earth fans. Monolith Productions latest open-world epic set in the Lord of the Rings universe now has a photo mode feature. For those who are unfamiliar photo mode is feature that allows players to pause there singleplayer games and take snapshots. They can also manipulate the camera, apply filters and other nifty things.

Sucker Punch Productions’ inFamous: Second Son was the first current-gen title to introduce the popular feature earlier this year, The Last of Us: Remastered and Driveclub (All PS4 exclusives) followed suit. This is a big surprise seeing as MP didn’t say anything about it, leading up to its release.

Behold the sweet message I received after booting up Shadow of Mordor on my PS4.

Photo Mode, Whoop!

Here are some of my snapshots:

I believe I can Fly…

Talion as brutal as they come.

You can even add the game’s logo to your snapshot

In order to use photo mode the player must enable it in the game settings menu. Afterwards all it takes a simple click of the left thumb stick to activate it. I’m not sure if this is only available for the PS4 version of the title but I will give an update once I learn more. Stay tuned.
