Middle-Earth: Shadow of War Announced with Trailer, Launching August 22

It has been almost three years since Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor was released and fans have been clamouring for a sequel. After mistakenly leaking on US retailer Target’s website over the weekend however, Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment has finally made the news official on Monday: The sequel Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is coming. They have even released a trailer announcing its arrival:

Shadow of Mordor is an open-world action game that utilises the ‘Nemesis’ system that allows the artificial intelligence of non-playable characters to remember the death of the game’s protagonist and react accordingly. The original game received considerably favourable reviews from both fans and critics alike, praising it for its combat system, open-world design, and lore-accurate art direction. The game’s developers worked closely and consulted with several people including Weta workshop and Peter Jackson himself to bring Tolkien’s fantasy world to life in video game mode.
