The newest trailer for Middle Earth: Shadow of War released today, and it shows us the multitude of ways you will be able to gain orc followers. Unlike Shadow of Mordor where you simply dominate the orcs, Shadow of War will see each of your followers remember the events surrounding their acquisition.
Whether spared, scarred, recruited or marked, every encounter will be remembered and help fuel the dynamics of society and conflict within Mordor, all brought to life through the innovative Nemesis System. It seems like we are getting new information about Shadow of War every day now, and we are still about a month and a half away from release.
For the first time, there will be new end game content upon completing the final mission. As we noted in our coverage, Shadow Wars will see the enemy orcs try to take back the fortresses you conquered during the campaign. You’ll need to hold them off through multiple waves, and losing will pit you on a rescue mission to save your overlord. This will bring you to the game’s true ending and how it ties into The Fellowship of the Ring.
Middle Earth: Shadow of War releases on October 10th, 2017. Check out the trailer below.
