Sauron returns in this announcement trailer for the game Shadow of War

Set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth: Shadow of War continues the original narrative of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and expands upon the nemesis system established in the previous game. While a gameplay trailer will hit next month, we do have the announcement teaser that gives you a cinematic look at where the story is headed, as well as some of the enemies you can expect to encounter. Take a look!

The story for Shadow of Mordor was certainly nothing special, but the gameplay was fun and the nemesis system addicting. A sequel to the game felt like a bit of an inevitability, but I'm excited to see what directions Monolith can push the new one. The Lord of the Rings is a fascinating and expansive world, and much like STAR WARS, deserves a new game every year to help flesh it out. Granted, that's not always the case, but I'm glad we'll get another look with Shadow of War!

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War will be available on August 25, 2017.
