Middle-Earth: Shadow of War Leaked
It was inevitable that the sequel to the highly-praised Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor was coming and there were so many events within the last year that I thought for sure would contain the official reveal of the sequel, but after a leak by Target's International website, revealed by NeoGaffer DeathByBacklog and reported by Gamespot, we finally have confirmation that the Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is coming.
As of this time, the website listing on Target's website currently shows that the page is unavailable (of course it is), but DeathByBacklog was able to grab the description and box art before it was taken down:
"Go behind enemy lines to forge your army, conquer Fortresses, and dominate Mordor from within," it reads. "Experience how the award-winning Nemesis System creates unique personal stories with every enemy and follower, and confront the full power of the Dark Lord Sauron and his Ringwraiths in this epic new story of Middle-earth."
This is exciting news as Shadow of Mordor is one of my favorite games of the last few years and our staff have been dying for a sequel ever since. I've missed the Nemesis System in particular and I can't wait to see how Monolith have expected upon that brilliant mechanic.
