As we reported last night, Microsoft today officially announced that Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available on Xbox One and Windows 10 beginning August 22, 2017. Microsoft also mentioned that it will also be available for Project Scorpio following the console’s launch this holiday season.
Developed by Monolith Productions, the open-world action-adventure game is brought to life once more through an expanded version of the award-winning Nemesis System. The robust personalization from the first game is now applied to the entire world where environments and characters are all shaped by player actions and decisions, creating a personal world unique to every gameplay experience.
Another good news for gamers is that this will be a Xbox Play Anywhere title. So, gamers can save their Middle-earth: Shadow of War progress, DLC (including add-ons, Expansion Pass and in-game unlocks), Gamerscore and Achievements to their Xbox Live cloud-synced player profiles, so they can pick up where they left on another Project Scorpio or Xbox One or Windows 10.
