Yesterday, there was a leak about a sequel to the game Middle Earth:Shadow of Mordor. The sequel was titled, Middle Earth:Shadow of War. Though, the title isn’t official yet, Warner Bros confirmed that the sequel will happen.
Here is the official game plot description:
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 action-adventure game 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.
Shadow of war will have Talion and Celebrimbor going behind enemy lines to forge an army and turn all of Mordor against the Dark Lord, Sauron.
The game is being developed by Monolith Productions. Its VP Michael de Plater said, that after the massive reception of Shadow of Mordor, the team decided to expand every dimension of the game including the story, RPG system, core gameplay and personal storylines of each character.
Shadow of War’s Nemesis system is updated with a feature called, ‘Followers’. These are characters that will bring entirely new perspective of loyalty, betrayal, and revenge by being an important part of your character’s life.
Monolith promises Shadow of War to have the best fantasy world ever, which is more richer with iconic locations, original enemy types, and a new cast of characters with untold stories. Here is the announcement trailer.
Following the announcement, Gamestop has revealed an edition of Shadow of War that will be sold exclusively in the US (for now). The Mithril Edition is priced at $300 and includes the Gold Edition in addition to a 12-inch statue depicting a battle between a Tar-Goroth Balrog and a Carnan Drake.
