Warner Bros. seems to be gearing up to launch the mobile version of the sequel to its popular game - Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, dubbed Shadow of War. The upcoming sequel to the game had already garnered a lot of attention from gamers when it was revealed earlier this year. It was slated to launch in October, but the studio delayed it for unknown reasons. Now, Warner Bros. is prepping to launch it on Android and iOS.
Interestingly, some footage of the gameplay has also surfaced on the internet. Hawk-eyes on Reddit has found out that the game is currently up for download in the Philippines, which seems to be a soft launch. For other regions, users can try out its unreleased beta version.
The studio has not revealed an official launch date for the mobile version of the game yet, but the store page shows that the game was listed on July 6 with this description :
Certain that it will help overthrow Sauron and raise himself as a force for good in his place, Celebrimbor has forged a new ring of power. Alongside this new ring, he has forged a series of minor rings that are bound to its fate and call to Champions across Middle-earth; wage the Shadow War and overthrow Sauron's armies.
The game offers RPG (Role Play Game) like action that lets players modify and level-up the characters. Players can play as Talion, Gandalf, Gollum, and Galadriel. Shadow of War continues the story of Talion and Celebrimbor where it left off in Shadow of Mordor, as they endeavour to overthrow Sauron. It is in beta version for now.
Shadow of War Nemesis
Shadow of Mordor comes with the nemesis system from the Shadow of Mordor, and following the prequel, players will face an orc that remembers their actions in the game. It would also mock players for the previous loss or even punish them for assassinating a friend. Battles are played in real-time and players would get a chance to strategise their team's moves. They will also get to utilise every member's special attack to turn the tables.
If the above-given information sparks your interest in the game, then you can head over to the Play Store right this instant and check out the beta version of the game.
