After slipping out via a retail leak, Warner Bros. has officially announced Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, the follow-up sequel to the highly-acclaimed action-adventure game, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.
Along with the announcement, no gameplay was shown off, but there is a tantalising cinematic trailer that gives gamers an idea of what’s to come in the sequel, which will once again tie neatly into the Lord of the Rings lore.
“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,” explains the official announcement. “The open-world action-adventure game is brought to life through the expansion of the award-winning Nemesis System. The robust personalisation 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.”
Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available for Xbox One, Project Scorpio, Windows 10 PC (Windows Store and Steam), PS4, and interestingly, Project Scorpio, beginning 25 August 2017.
