The sequel to the critically-acclaimed Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, winner of over 50 industry awards, arrives this August, continuing the original story of Talion and Celebrimbor, who must now go behind enemy lines to forge an army and turn all of Mordor against the dark lord, Sauron. Immerse yourself in the epic war for Middle-earth as you confront the Dark Lord Sauron and his Ringwraith’s. Forge a Ring of Power to dominate your enemies and command your followers as you experience a unique, personal story brought to life by the award-winning Nemesis System.


The gameplay looks stunning. Additionally, don’t forget that the game will run at native 4K on Xbox One X when the console launches in November. The title will be upgraded for the console closer to the launch date. I can’t wait for this game and I hope neither can you! As Donald Trump says, it’s going to be “ugheeeee!” Lastly, Middle-earth: Shadow of War also supports Xbox Play Anywhere so you can buy it on the Windows Store and it’ll still work on Xbox One, or vice versa.
