SEQUEL to the stellar action RPG, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Shadow of War has been announced by Warner Bros.
Shadow of Mordor won over 50 awards, including the BAFTA for Game Design.
Developed by Monolith Productions, Middle-earth: Shadow of War sees the return of protagonists Talion and Celebrimbor, who must now forge an army and turn all of Mordor against the Dark Lord, Sauron.
It has been teased that players will be able to wield a new Ring of Power and confront enemies that include Sauron and his Nazgul.
The game is promising to expand the incredible nemesis system and once again feature an epic fantasy open-world.
Further more, it is promising for environments that change depending on how you play, just like the enemies did in Shadow of Mordor.
Warner Bros have said Shadow of War will release on August 25 for Xbox One, Project Scorpio, PS4 (and Pro) and Windows 10.
David Haddad, President at Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment added: “Following the amazing reception to Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor™, we massively expanded every dimension of the game, including the world, the story, the RPG systems, the core gameplay and of course the personal player stories of the Nemesis System,” said Michael de Plater, Vice President, Creative, Monolith Productions. “As lifelong fans of Middle-earth, we are so grateful to have the privilege to bring to life the most incredible fantasy world ever created in a new way, for a new generation. With Middle-earth: Shadow of War™, we can’t wait to see the amazing stories players are going to create and share.”
