Shadow of War Release Date, Editions, Trailers And More

Author: Rob

Shadow of War is the next in the Middle-earth Shadow series, following on from the popular Shadow of Mordor. The Shadow of War release date is 10th October 2017 and will follow on from the events from the last game and will be delving deeper into Talion and Celebrimbor’s story. The game will pick up directly from Shadow of Mordor and will continue the battle against Sauron’s army, with the forging of the new ring.

Shadow of War Gameplay

Celebrimbor will have expanded abilities, moves and features, including summoning a hammer. Talion will also have built upon combat abilities to wield in battle. Similar to Shadow of Mordor, you will be attacking fortresses with your army, taking down soldiers, beasts, War Chiefs and Overlords. In our Shadow of War hands on, we managed to successfully take down an enemy fortress and claim it as our own. You can check out the gameplay walkthrough video below.

Shadow of War Open World

The impressive open world explores the vast expanses of the chilling Mordor area, with its cascading mountainous fortresses, desolate fields and lost caves smothered in looming trees. The latest open world trailer shows the areas you’ll be able to explore when you land in Mordor this August.
