If the prospect of slaying thousands more Orcs sounds like a good time, then Middle-earth: Shadow of War is here to deliver. There's even a Gladiator-style arena.
Due out on August 25, Shadow of War is the sequel to the third-person Ork slasher Shadow of Mordor. It'll supposedly include more worlds to explore and an expanded Nemesis system, although all I'm really crossing my fingers for is a lot less brown than Mordor's opening levels.
The open world trailer, released this morning, doesn't show a lot of gameplay sequences, mechanics or much of anything bar wide shots of environments. And that's kind of the idea: it's a bigger game, and it's a lot less brown.
Well, it's still pretty brown. But you get the idea.
Fingers crossed Shadow of War surpasses the original, like most sequels tend to do. 2017 has already been a pretty good year, hasn't it?
