Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War is a much-anticipated game for 2017. Its predecessor Middle-Earth: Shadow Of Mordor which was released back in 2014 had a cult following. This is a game in which is based on J.R.R Tolkien’s fantasy novels, The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit. We ALL know how popular those movies and novels were so its no surprise that Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor was also incredibly popular (and still played today!). On February 2017 they announced that the new game, Middle Earth: Shadow of War would be available on October 10th, 2017. This game will be available on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4. The original date was set for August, but unfortunately the date got moved up!
Summary: The player continues the story of the ranger Talion who shares his body with the spirit of the elf lord Celebrimbor, as they use one of the Rings of Power to amass an army to fight against Sauron and his Nazgûl forces. The game builds upon the Nemesis system introduced in Shadow of Mordor, allowing Talion to gain Followers from several races of Middle-earth including Uruk-Hai and Olog-hai and plan out complex strategies using these to complete missions.
This is the official trailer for Middle Earth: Shadow Of War
I will say that usually I play maybe a handful of genres and that’s about it – and I’m okay with that. But, once in a blue moon, a game comes along, blows my mind, and MAKES me want to pre-order it. Well, this is that game. I don’t usually play these types of Fantasy / Action Role Playing games but I would definitely consider putting this one on my list – and you should too! Here are all the consoles that ME-SOW is going to be available. There is a gold and standard option for Xbox One, PC Standard edition, and a PlayStation 4 Standard and Gold edition. However, the Gold and standard edition on PS4 is only available as a physical copy. Meanwhile on Xbox One Gold is available as a physical OR digital option, as is standard. I’ll list the Xbox, PS4 and PC standard and gold editions and then you can just choose physical or digital!
The Standard edition is only the game.
The gold edition of Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War includes Two nemesis expansions, Slaughter Tribe and Outlaw Tribe and it also includes two story expansions, The Blade of Galadriel and The Desolation of Mordor.
Remember, the release date for Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War will be on October 10th, 2017
