Fans of Monolith's take on the classic Lord of the Rings saga will be happy to know that a sequel is in the works. Leaked by Target, Middle-earth: Shadow of War seems to be the title of the upcoming game. The description on the Target website (which has since ceased to be) reads, "Go behind enemy lines to forge your army, conquer Fortresses and dominate Mordor from within."
The much-touted "Nemesis" feature from the first game will be making a return. In addition to that information, a "Gold" version of the game was listed which included two story expansions, a different playable character, new abilities, and extra side missions. The "Gold" version also comes with some exclusive "Nemesis" content in the form of an extra Orc fortress and specific tribe.
The release date was listed for August 22 and will cost $60 for the standard and $100 for the "Gold" on PS4 and Xbox One. Seeing as how the past game launched on PC, as well, I'd assume the game is also coming to that platform.read more
