Shadow of War lets your bring your Nemesis from Shadow of Mordor

Your worst enemy follows you

Shadow of Mordor delivers a dynamic game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will. Simply put, it's a neat way to carry over the story into the new game if you played the first game. The trailer below demonstrates how this will work.

The cast includes actors, Kumail Nanjiani ("The Big Sick", "Silicon Valley") and Pollyanna McIntosh ("The Walking Dead", "Hap and Leonard", "The Woman"), Performance Capture Director, Troy Baker (Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor), who is reprising his role as Talion, alongside Alastair Duncan (Westworld), who returns as Celebrimbor and Laura Bailey (Injustice 2), who plays the elite assassin, Eltariel.

Essentially, the Nemesis Forge system allows players who played Shadow of Mordor to bring over one of their most hated enemies and one of their most trusted followers into the expansive world of Shadow of War.

The Nemesis Forge is now available for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam.




The new addition is a free update available on all platforms.

To get people through the door, Shadow of Mordor is going on sale for PS4 until 19th July, Xbox One until 17th July and PC until 10th July, with up to 80% off in price.

When Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor launched, it was praised for its innovative "Nemesis System", which had players stalked by powerful foes previously slain. So you can bring your best friend and worst enemy over for the sequel when it releases on October 10. Although Monolith Productions' Creative Vice President Michael de Plater has described the development process for Shadow of War as being "super stressful", it's good to see that the team still has made sure to acknowledge long-time fans' investment to the franchise.

And that's not the end of the good news, because if you'd like to play it for longer, or just save it to play at a later date, the Game of the Year Edition, with all DLC, is a measly £3.20, so there's every reason to at least give the game a go this weekend.
