Middle-earth


 

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released the first gameplay video for Monolith’s upcoming sequel to Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Middle-earth: Shadow of War.

The 16-minute long gameplay walkthrough shows Talion and Celebrimbor, who return as the Bright Lord, leading a fortress assault on the mountain valley of Seregost to take it from one of Sauron’s Overlords, Ur-Hakon the Dragon.

The video offers a look at one of the features of the improved Nemesis System, Nemesis Fortresses, dynamic strongholds that must be captured in a variety of ways to help forge a personalized Orc army for Talion and Celebrimbor. An example of this new feature comes at the beginning of the video when Talion and his army take on Thrak Storm-Bringer, who used to be part of Talion’s army before he betrayed him and joined the Dark Lord.

Set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth: Shadow of War continues the story of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and sees players wielding a new Ring of Power to take on Sauron and his Nazgul.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War launches August 22nd for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Project Scoprio, PlayStation 4 Pro, and PC. The game will also be an Xbox Play Anywhere title.
