Middle Earth: Shadow Of War offers more skills and customization than it's predecessor, but how are they doing it? This first look from IGN shows us some of the new customization options and upgrades for Shadow Of War, as well as some new gameplay of the game in Alpha. I like the ability to upgrade a weapon, but I'm wondering how necessary this skill becomes seeing as so many foes drop with little to no effort as is. Check out the new footage and weapons in the video below. Shadow of War releases August 22nd.
