Your personal experience in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor may carry over into the game’s sequel, Shadow of War.
Part of what earned the original game so much acclaim was its Nemesis System, which allowed enemies in-game to remember you and hold a grudge. Every player could have a unique orc nemesis pursuing them and growing in strength across the game, and if such a nemesis could follow you even into a sequel, well… that would be pretty cool.
While nothing has been confirmed, some recent behavior from Monolith Productions creative vice president Michael de Plater seemed to hint that there’s some sort of system in the works. GamesRadar asked outright if it would be possible to transfer save files from the old game to the new, and rather than giving a straight ‘no,’ de Plater was evasive.
“Oh… I don’t remember what we’re allowed to say about that,” de Plater said, before reportedly leaving the room to consult with a Warner Bros. representative. “We’re not saying anything at this time,” was his ultimate response upon returning.
So, while there’s no outright confirmation, it definitely seems that there’s some sort of system in the works.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War is scheduled to release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 22nd.
