Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released the first ever gameplay footage of Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
The 16-minutes gameplay video features Talion and Celebrimbor, who return as the Bright Lord, leading a fortress assault on the mountain valley of Seregost and take it from one of Sauron's Overlords. The video also introduces us to the new Nemesis system, which allows you to recruit enemies during combat.
The innovative Nemesis System created unique personal stories through procedurally-generated enemies who remember every encounter and are differentiated by their personality, strengths and weaknesses. Middle-earth: Shadow of War expands this innovation with the introduction of Followers who bring about entirely new stories of loyalty, betrayal and revenge. The Nemesis System is also expanded to create a unique personal world through Nemesis Fortresses, which allows players to utilize different trategies to conquer dynamic strongholds and create personalized worlds with their unique Orc army.
Set between the events of "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings", Middle-earth: Shadow of War continues the original narrative of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Players will be engrossed in a richer, more personal and expansive world full of epic heroes and villains, iconic locations, original enemy types, even more personalities and a new cast of characters with untold stories.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War releases for PS4, Xbox One and PC, on the 22th of August in North America and on the 25th of August in Europe. The game will be an Xbox Play Anywhere title, which means that players can purchase a digital version of Middle-earth: Shadow of War once and play it on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. A Project Scorpio version of the game is also in development.
