Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor was one of the premier titles of this early console generation. Blending elements of Assassin’s Creed and the Batman Arkham series with the huge twist that was the Nemesis System, the game has been without a sequel since its late 2014 launch.
In Middle-earth: Shadow of War, players wield a new Ring of Power and confront the deadliest of enemies, including Sauron and his Nazgul, in a monumental battle for Middle-earth. The open-world RPG is brought to life through the expansion of the award-winning Nemesis System. The robust personalization from the first game is now applied to the entire world where the environments and characters are all shaped by player actions and decisions, creating a personal world unique to every gameplay experience.
There you have it, the systems that forged the first game look to be expanded upon, shaping the world in different ways. Target accidentally got the title and assets out to the public early over the weekend, so we knew something was on the way. Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on August 22, 2017.

It’s been a relatively quiet pre-release cycle for Mass Effect: Andromeda. We’ve seen a few trailers here and there, but the release date’s been completely under wraps, hiding under the “TBA 2017” placeholder since...more
It seems like it’s been an eternity since Nintendo unveiled the Switch – the hybrid portable-console we were all anticipating late last year. They won’t say much else on the device until January 13th, where a Nintendo Switch...more
It’s been over four years since the (infamous, depending on who you talk to) climax of the Mass Effect trilogy. Commander Shepard’s story is done, but the Mass Effect franchise certainly is not. Under the guise of a recruitment...more
