Middle-earth: Shadow of War Delayed

Middle-earth: Shadow of War

Middle-earth: Shadow of War has been delayed according to developer Monolith.

The game was originally scheduled for an August release, but has now been pushed back to October 10. In a blog post, Monolith said the expanded scope of the game required a delay:

Middle-earth: Shadow of War expands gameplay in every dimension, including the massive open world, the story, the RPG systems, and personal player stories of the Nemesis System. As with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Monolith is committed to delivering the highest quality experience. In order to do this, we have made the difficult decision to move our launch date to ensure that Middle-earth: Shadow of War will deliver on that promise.”

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is the sequel to 2014’s Shadow of Mordor. The open-world action game borrows elements from the Batman: Arkham series for its fluid combat, and the Assassin’s Creed series for its focus on traversal and climbing. The unique hook is the Nemesis System. At any point players can view the enemy hierarchy and sow chaos in their ranks by targeting their leaders. As enemies are defeated, others advance in rank, and enemies that kill the player character may even be promoted.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is launching for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. During an interview with GameSpot, Monolith said they are not currently working on a Nintendo Switch version of the game. You can check out the game’s most recent trailer below.
