Shadow of War developer Monolith Productions has announced that Forthog Orcslayer will be included in the upcoming Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor sequel.

The legendary Orcslayer is being introduced to Shadow of War in remembrance of the game’s executive producer, Mike “Forthog” Forgey, who sadly lost the fight to cancer during Shadow of War’s development. “He was always ready to leap into the fray and save the game whenever and wherever he was most needed”, Monolith writes.  “We want to remember and honor him with a little bit of immortality in Mordor. The legendary Forthog Orcslayer is our way to continue having Mike leap into battle and save us when we’re down.”
