Middle-earth: Shadow of War gets it’s first official gameplay tomorrow March 8. But before that, the publisher, Warner Bros. has released a new teaser that offers a extremely brief look at new gameplay.
It doesn’t reveal too much, but it does show main character Talion riding a winged beast, possibly a Drake. The closing seconds of the video shows Talion raising his sword with Orcs behind him. The game is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and promises a “more personal and expansive world” for Shadow of War. Expect to see epic heroes and villains, as well as iconic locations, original enemy types, even more personalities, and a new cast of characters with untold stories.
Shadow of War, a sequel to 2014’s Shadow of Mordor, was announced last week. It is scheduled to launch on August 22 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Mithril Edition of Shadow of War comes with a 12-inch statue that depicts the battle between a Tar-Goroth Balrog and a Carnan Drake, and other bonuses. A Gold Edition comes with the base game and various DLC, including story expansions.
It isn’t long and repeats itself 4 times but you can get just a glimpse of what’s to come for the game.
