Yesterday, gaming got a huge surprise. Thanks to an accidental leak by Target's website, we now not only know that a Shadow Of Mordor sequel is in development, we also know what it will be about and when it will release as well! Middle Earth: Shadow Of War sounds like you will try to destroy Sauron from the inside, take a look at the official description:
"Experience an epic open-world brought to life by the award-winning Nemesis System. Forge a new Ring of Power, conquer Fortresses in massive battles and dominate Mordor with your personal Orc army in Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
Go behind enemy lines to forge your army, conquer Fortresses and dominate Mordor from within. Experience how the award-winning Nemesis System creates unique personal stories with every enemy and follower, and confront the full power of the Dark Lord Sauron and his Ringwraiths in this epic new story of Middle-earth."
A date for the game had the release date listed as August 22nd of this year, but it could just be a placeholder. Like Injustice 2, Shadow Of War will also come bundled with a "gold edition" that will include four expansions with more missions, Orc armies, and an entirely different playable character. If the price point is anything like it was with Injustice 2, the "gold," edition will likely run close to $100.
Personally, I'm very excited that there's a possibility we could be playing a sequel to Shadow Of Mordor this year! If you haven't played the first game you need to pick it up now!
