'Middle-earth: Shadow of War' (ALL) Developer Interview

by Adam Pavlacka on Sept. 26, 2017 @ 2:03 a.m. PDT

Middle-earth: Shadow of War features an original story with the return of Talion and Celebrimbor, who must go behind enemy lines to forge an army and turn all of Mordor against the Dark Lord, Sauron.

In Middle-earth: Shadow of War, players wield a new Ring of Power and confront the deadliest of enemies, including Sauron and his Nazgul, in a monumental battle for Middle-earth. The open-world action-adventure game is brought to life through the expansion of the award-winning Nemesis System. The robust personalization from the first game is now applied to the entire world where the environments and characters are all shaped by player actions and decisions, creating a personal world unique to every gameplay experience.

Set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth: Shadow of War 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, even more personalities and a new cast of characters with untold stories.

In Middle-earth: Shadow of War, nothing will be forgotten.

The release of Middle-earth: Shadow of War is just around the corner, so we caught up with Matt Allen, Director of Technical Art at Monolith, to take another look at the game and ask a few questions.

Join us as we jump into a late-game fort assault while having a casual chat about what went into creating the visuals of Shadow of War, and what enhancements Xbox One X owners can expect from the game. The gameplay video that you are watching was captured directly from an Xbox One X development kit at 1080p.

As an Xbox Play Anywhere title, players can purchase a digital version of Middle-earth: Shadow of War once and play it on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. Gamers can pick up where they left off on another Xbox One or Windows 10 PC, bringing all the saves, game add-ons and achievements with them at no additional cost.
