    Target may very well have just accidentally leaked that 2014's Shadow of Mordor could be getting a sequel. The retailer lists the game, along with boxart and a detailed description of a "Gold Edition". Titled Shadow of War, the boxart shows previous developer, Monolith Productions will be coming back to work on the sequel. The Target description for the Gold Edition details that there will be at least 4 story expansion DLCs. The game's Nemesis system will also be returning, alongside new weapons, abilities, and armor. The story DLC description makes note of there being a new playable character that players can take control of, as well as being able to forge a new "ring of power". There is no release date or official word from WB Games at this time.

    EDIT:

    WB Entertainment has officially issued a press release, announcing the game. Shadow of War will release on Xbox One, Project Scorpio, Windows 10, Steam, PS4, and PS4 Pro on August 25, 2017.




    A gameplay trailer will be released on March 8th.

    But what if this was intentional?

    Just played through the "first" game recently. The nemesis system was nice, but the rest of the game..meh. Especially all those "bosses" were way too easy. Some of the Orcs where much harder. Not hyped for a sequel.

    They hinted at a sequel in the first one, but I didn't think we hear of it any time soon.

    The first game was very frustating, because the orcs got stronger after you died. If you are having problems against an opponent, he shouldn't be even stronger in the second try.

    I don't understand game companies. Why do they keep supplying retailers with release dates and cover art for games they haven't even announced yet. Here's an idea, don't give them that info until AFTER you've announced your game.

    The last one said it needed 6 for the hi-res pack, but it was a liar. Ran at a solid 60FPS on my old GTX 970 with just 3.5GB of VRAM. Runs at 4K on my GTX 1070.

    The game isn't coming to the Switch, which is a little disappointing. It also mentions that it's releasing for the Scorpio, and the game is out in August? I thought the Scorpio was supposed to hit shelves this holiday season.
