Set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth: Shadow of War is an open-world action RPG that continues the original narrative of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.
Players will be engrossed in a richer, more personal and expansive world full of epic heroes and villains, iconic locations, original enemy types, more personalities and a new cast of characters with untold stories.
The game stars Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick, Silicon Valley) as The Agonizer, a spirited yet deadly Orc enemy, who is just one of the numerous personalities players may encounter through the Nemesis System in the upcoming open-world action videogame.
“With Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Monolith Productions has advanced its innovative artificial intelligence technology, that is their Nemesis System from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, to create a gameplay experience unlike any other,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
“Players of Middle-earth: Shadow of War will encounter a totally personalised world that remembers their every move, which, along with a compelling story, should greatly please fans and new players.”
“We worked incredibly hard to massively expand Middle-earth: Shadow of War in every dimension, including the open world, the story, the RPG systems, the core gameplay and of course the personal player stories created through the expanded Nemesis System,” said Michael de Plater, Vice President, Creative, Monolith Productions.
“As lifelong fans of all things Middle-earth, we are so grateful to have the privilege to bring to life the most incredible fantasy world ever, reimagined in a fresh way for fans and newcomers.
“We can’t wait to see the amazing stories players are going to create and share once they experience all that Middle-earth: Shadow of War has to offer.”
