Shadow of War, the much anticipated, follow up to the critically acclaimed Shadow of Mordor is only three months away. As such we are now getting to see new game play and screenshots more or less on a weekly basis. I have embedded a video of 88 minutes of game play below but beware, there may be a couple spoilers so watch at your own risk.
Shadow of War or Shadow of Sunshine?
One thing that I that surprised me by watching the game play is the setting. Shadow of Mordor had an incredibly gloomy looking environment but this new game almost looks like it was drawn by the team behind Assassin’s Creed, it’s gorgeous. However, does that bright, beautiful setting work in the Lord of the Rings franchise? I’m not so sure. Obviously with the size of the world, it will probably only be a small portion that looks as bright and rich as this so still expect the dark, gloomy settings too. It is just a little surprising to see Orcs in such a setting. Feel free to let me know what you think either down below or on social media (Our links are below the video)
Shadow of War is due to be released August 25th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
