We announced the Target ad leak of Shadow of War last week, then the immediate official announcement trailer came soon after. Now we have the first gameplay trailer of the successor to Shadow of Mordor ‘Shadow of War’.
The gameplay trailer shows how the team has expanded the revolutionary nemesis system. The game is broken down into multiple territories, each with their own overlords. You can bolster up your own army and go into enemy lines to claim these areas as your own.
There is a particular orc who they showcased that has a grudge against you. Not only is he possessed, but there is a part where he tries to get you as you storm the fortress. Another unique feature is the fact that you can now ride dragons and turn on your opponents.
I think that Monolith has me sold on the sequel and this will be a day one purchase for me. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be picking this one up.
