So you fist pumped with Hannah when Warner Bros. Interactive announced Middle-Earth: Shadow of War last month. Prepare to do a lot more this time around. The very first gameplay video of the sequel hit the internet and boy does it have a lot of features and action. Talion and Celebrimbor are back to cause unimaginable destruction against Lord Sauron once more.
This instance the pair are leading an assault on the Seregost fortress to kill an overlord. At their backs is a plentiful group of many different creatures with different abilities. No longer are allies and former enemies put in positions of power, they also fight by your side as well in the form of an actual army. Not only that, but new gameplay mechanics and possibilities are on display as well. Such as riding a freaking dragon! However, the standout feature has to be the dymanic storytelling that plays out depending on who’s by your side, where they are on the battlefield, and if they live or die. Check out the epic footage above.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is being developed by Monolith and is the sequel to Shadow of Mordor. It will release for the PlayStation 4 on August 22nd in North America and August 25th for Europe.
