This is it. It’s happening. Well, we all knew it was happening for 24 hours, but this time it’s official.
The information provided by the leak was almost spot-on, as we will see a return to the Nemesis system (said to be improved), there will be a new Ring of Power crafted by Talion and Celebrimbor in an effort to fight back against Sauron and the Nazgul, and the descriptions fit perfectly. What we didn’t know, however, was that the game is releasing on August 25th as opposed to August 22nd, and that it’ll be released for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Project Scorpio. Better get hyped!
In Middle-earth: Shadow of War, players wield a new Ring of Power and confront the deadliest of enemies, including Sauron and his Nazgul, in a monumental battle for Middle-earth. The open-world RPG is brought to life through the expansion of the award-winning Nemesis System. The robust personalization from the first game is now applied to the entire world where the environments and characters are all shaped by player actions and decisions, creating a personal world unique to every gameplay experience.
So far it looks — and sounds — promising, and hopefully the official gameplay reveal on March 8 won’t let us down.
The war for Mordor begins.
