Today, Monolith Productions has released a story trailer for the upcoming Middle Earth: Shadow of War – the highly anticipated sequel to 2014’s Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. The game is set in the universe of JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, and (judging from the trailer) looks like it will feature many of the elements that make the world so appealing to so many of us – including Sauron, another ring of power (!), Nazgul, and Shelob. The trailer is presented in glorious 4K – and you can check it out below.
The game will be released on 10th October 2017, and is currently available for pre-order. Pre-order bonuses consist of in-game items: “Four Legendary Orc Champions” and the “Epic Sword of Dominion”.
