    Why GameStop is excited for Middle Earth: Shadow of War

    In 2014, Shadows of Mordor invited you to explore the darker side of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth. As Talion, a ranger of Gondor infused with the spirit of a powerful Elf Lord, you stood in defiance of Sauron. Now, Shadows of War is the acclaimed next chapter in your suspenseful quest to defeat the Dark Lord.

    You must cross enemy lines using physical prowess and stealth. As if that is not tricky enough, you must then create an army of your own that can face the Dark Lord of Mordor, Sauron. Lay siege to fortresses with your armies until you can challenge the Eye itself. Thanks to the new Ring of Power, you have the potential to become a mighty king and stop the monstrous evil of the Dark Lord. However, the journey to victory is sure to be treacherous and bloody.

    The Nemesis system brings Middle Earth to life with new complexity. Depending upon your decisions, everyone you encounter becomes an ally or a formidable foe. In turn, every choice reshapes the game, giving Shadows of War almost infinite replayability.

    • A New Nemesis System: Shadow of Mordor's Nemesis system was completely reimagined. Now you can also use the system to recruit powerful allies. Every interaction you have can influence the world around you.
    • Raise the Fifth Column: Travel into the heart of the Dark Lord's realm and turn the forces of Mordor against Sauron.
    • Combine Your Skills as a Warrior with Otherworldly Aptitudes: Your character is an experienced warrior who carries the spirit of the Elf Lord, Celebrimbor. It's up to you to craft a nuanced strategy that utilizes your unique skillset to conquer Sauron.

    Middle Earth: Shadows of War and Middle-earth: Shadow of War is available now for the Xbox One, PC, and PS4.

    In the land of Mordor, no slight is ever forgiven and victory is never guaranteed.

    The Game Informer Watch List: Middle Earth: Shadow of War

    Building on the designs of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Middle-earth: Shadow of War builds upon the Nemesis system from the original game and adds a heap of new features. Foes you meet early on may come back to haunt you, learning from their past failures and encounters.

    Dominating opponents allows you create your own personal army, one you can use to take on fortress encounters - massive battles teeming with troops as you jump into the fray.

    Taking on these new castle-style assaults with a continually expanding legion is epic from start to finish, from climbing up the tower walls, riding massive beasts, and eventually toppling the enemy warlord and capturing the keep.

    The progression system has also been improved, giving players more choices and making those selections more meaningful.

    We can't wait to make many new Nemesis opponents - and turn many of our enemies into allies - when Shadow of War hits on October 10.
