Update To Shadow Of Mordor Will Let You Bring Your Top Nemesis To Shadow Of War

Nemesis Forge

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced the Nemesis Forge, a new update for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor that will allow a player to bring their top Nemesis and Follower from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor to Middle-earth: Shadow of War when it's released on October 10th.

In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, players created countless personal stories of revenge through the unique enemies and allies generated by the Nemesis System. With the Nemesis Forge, these stories continue in Middle-earth: Shadow of War by importing a returning player's arch-Nemesis from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, while also identifying a player's most loyal Orc follower, who can help fight and defend against Sauron's forces.

The Nemesis Forge is now available for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam. The Nemesis Forge is, honestly, a pretty cute way to bridge the two games by capitalizing on the unique Nemesis system that runs through both Middle-earth games.

For newcomers to the series who want to create their own unique Nemesis, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is available to try out for free on Xbox One and Steam starting today at 8 a.m. PDT through July 9th.

Additionally, players will be able to purchase Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam for 80 percent off the regular price. The sale timing for each platform is listed below:

  • Xbox One: On sale now through July 17th
  • PlayStation 4: On sale now through July 11th
  • Steam: On sale now through July 10th

Set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the RingsMiddle-earth: Shadow of War is an open-world action RPG that continues the original narrative of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Players will be engrossed in a richer, more personal and expansive world full of epic heroes and villains, iconic locations, original enemy types, more personalities and a new cast of characters with untold stories.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available for Xbox One, Windows 10 PC (through the Windows Store and Steam), and PlayStation 4 beginning October 10th. The official Nemesis Forge trailer is below.
