Shadow of War’s expanded Nemesis system presented

You can’t have a decent gaming week without some Middle-Earth: Shadow of War gameplay video.

This one comes courtesy of the Microsoft E3 conference, which apparently was hell-bent on showing as many games running on the latest Xbox One X console as it is possible. We’ve already seen the new Assassin’s Creed: Origins from Ubisoft, the latest Forza Motorsport 7, BioWare’s new IP, Anthem, and the long-awaited Crackdown 3. Now it’s time for Shadow of War to join the fray.

This time around, the game will be bigger on battles with the ability to create your own army consisting of all manners of the Dark Lord’s creatures, including orcs and trolls. As Talion you will be able to form bonds with your new slaves and even listen to some advice from your friendly neighborhood orcs.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War launches on October 10 on PCs, PlayStations 4 and Xboxes One (both).
