Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor’s Nemesis System created highly-customised enemies to challenge players throughout the adventure, and those adversaries can now return in the upcoming sequel, Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Monolith Productions have announced and released the Nemesis Forge update for the earlier title on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This update will allow players to import both their Arch Nemesis and most loyal follower into Shadow of War and continue the personal conflicts when the game releases on October 10, 2017.

For the sequel, the developers have expanded the Nemesis System to include a wider range of personalities, as well as being applicable to Talion’s followers, the actions and behaviours of which will be determined by the player’s interactions with them.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is a direct sequel to the previous game, with Talion once again working alongside the Elven spirit Celebrimbor. This time, however, Celebrimbor has forged a new Ring of Power with the intention of using the power it offers to overcome Sauron and the Nazgul.

To coincide with the release of Nemesis Forge, Warner Bros. is also holding a sale for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, where the game is currently available for 80% the usual retail price on digital platforms. The Steam version is on sale until July 10, the PS4 version until July 19, and the Xbox One version until July 17. In addition, PC and Xbox One users currently have free access available until July 9.

OnlySP’s Nick Calandra reviewed the original game back in 2014, and was full of praise for the core gameplay, variety on offer, and particularly the Nemesis System.
