After weekend leaks, Warner Bros. and developer Monolith have officially announced a sequel to 2014’s Shadow of Mordor.
After retailer Target posted a listing with cover art and a release date for Shadow of War over the weekend, WB Games has confirmed Shadow of War is releasing August 22, 2017. To accompany the annoucement, a new cinematic was released to show what protagonist Talion has been up to since the conclusion of Shadow of Mordor.
While the cinematic looks great and offers a little plot insight, a full gameplay reveal for the sequel is set to release on March 8, 2017 – just a little over a week from now.
Little is known about Shadow of War’s gameplay, but the official YouTube description notes that the Nemesis System from the first game has been expanded to the entire game world where environments and characters all react to decisions made by the player.
For more on Shadow of War, look out for the gameplay trailer sometime on March 8th.
