A sequel is coming!
And it is coming big. The name is Shadow of War, and has an epic announcement trailer:
Dveloped by Monolith, Shadow of War will bring our characters from the SoM back: Talion and Celebrimbor. This time they’ll have a much harder task: Infiltrating Sauron’s armies –by the help of the Nemesis system from the first game. It will be present in the sequel; and it will be greatly developed, as WB states:
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.
This enhanced Nemesis system will bring a new feature: “Followers” it is called, and it will greatly improve the interactions between our protagonist and his followers –by adding some drama to the relationships, it seems.
Middle Earth: Shadow of War will be out on August 22 in North America and August 25 in Europe for PC, PS4 & Xbox One.
