Someone’s getting thrown into the fires of Mount Doom for this one. An item posting on the website for American discount store Target has revealed that Warner Brothers and Monolith are indeed working on a Shadow of Mordor sequel, and that it is coming in August of this year. Titled Middle Earth: Shadow of War, this sequel has Talion and Celebrimbor amassing an army to take over Mordor and forge their own Ring of Power.

Picked up the first one recently on a PSN sale. Still haven't touched it of course, but it's on my to-do list :)

The nemesis system has been my favourite thing of this generation of Gaming.  The monolith game engine had solid combat, superior the ubisofts imo.

This looks to be my favourite game of the year. 30 hours in a unique game like this I prefer over hundreds in a grindy mmo.

Official tribute to the Ogre who died in the gameplay video. This is why I love the nemesis system, unique characters that you grow attached to (as an ally or dread as an enemy)

From reddit; this cracked me up  :pop:
Quote
Did you ever hear the tragedy of Az-Laar The Demolisher?
I thought not. It’s not a story the Uruk-hai would tell you. It’s a Bright Lord legend. Az-Laar was an Olog-Hai of Talion's army, so strong and so brute he could use his strenght to break the fortress gates to bring war… He had such a knowledge of the fortresses that he could even keep the ones he cared about from being burned. The side of the Bright Lord is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so strong… the only thing he was afraid of was being burned, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he charged into a fortress gate with all the strenght he had, then some Uruks killed him with fire. Ironic. He could save others from fire, but not himself.

Delayed to October.

Possible deal with M$ to be a Scorpio launch game?

Wouldn't surprise me. Easy game to pick up and say we want this to be a launch title.

It is looking more interesting than shadow of mordor. Graphically the scenery doesn't look great, but it's good enough. Not a good time of year to release though, especially with Destiny 2 coming.

It will be on my "to play" list, but that means wait for sale.
