The Palantir iOS app for Warner Bros. upcoming action-RPG, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, offers contextual information and tips by listening to your in-game audio. Think of it as Shazam for video games.
Let's admit to the fact that we have, and are, using walkthroughs to get through some of the difficult parts in video games, but managing both playing the game and looking elsewhere to follow the walkthrough has always been a cumbersome experience.
The Palantir app could be a perfect introduction to a companion screen that could help gamers whenever they need help by poking them on to the correct path. Like an always listening and talking hint system on your device.
The app will glean info from Wikia, which also contains lore, guides and minutia for the game.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is set to release for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One sometime this year.
