An executive producer from Monolith, the makers of the forthcoming Lord of the Rings game, Shadow of War is to live on as an heroic character in the new game.
Michael Forgey, who died from a brain tumour in 2016 at the age of 43 will appear in the new game as Forthog Orc-Slayer, arriving in battle at opportune moments to save the hero when all appears lost.
This honorary character will be available as DLC for the game, with some of the proceeds being charitably donated to the Forgey family. This applies in 44 US states, purchases of the DLC outside those locations will not donate to the Forgey family.
Direct donations can be made here.
