What is Middle-earth: Shadow of War?

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is the followup to the critically-acclaimed 2014 hit game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. With developer Monolith Productions back at the helm, Middle-earth: Shadow of War features the return of the ranger Talion and his wraith companion Celebrimbor as they battle the dark forces of Sauron. The two heroes forge their own Ring of Power to aid them in their seemingly impossible task of defeating Sauron and his army of Nazgul.

Like its predecessor, Middle-earth: Shadow of War is an open world action-adventure game. Middle-earth: Shadow of War will see the return of the lauded Nemesis system, which allows the game’s enemy AI to remember Talion and react to him based on their past experiences. Shadow of War is extending the Nemesis system to include more characters than just enemies, which means Talion will have plenty of opportunity to interact with other characters in the game’s open world.
