Warner Bros. today announced the Nemesis Forge, a new update for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor that will allow a player to bring their top Nemesis and Follower from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor to Middle-earth: Shadow of War when it releases on October 10, 2017. In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, players created countless personal stories of revenge through the unique enemies and allies generated by the Nemesis System. With the Nemesis Forge, these stories continue in Middle-earth: Shadow of War by importing a returning player’s arch Nemesis from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, while also identifying a player’s most loyal Orc follower, who can help fight and defend against Sauron’s forces. The Nemesis Forge is now available for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on Xbox One and Steam.

For newcomers to the series who want to create their own unique Nemesis, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is available to try out for free on Xbox One and Steam starting today at 4 PM BST through July 9. Additionally, players will be able to purchase Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on Xbox One and Steam for 80% off the regular price.

Set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth: Shadow of War is an open-world action role-playing game that continues the original narrative of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Players will be engrossed in a richer, more personal and expansive world full of epic heroes and villains, iconic locations, original enemy types, more personalities and a new cast of characters with untold stories. Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available for Xbox One, Xbox One X and Windows (Windows Store and Steam) beginning October 10, 2017.
