Shadow of War Releases New Open World Gameplay Trailer

Monolith has released a new trailer for Shadow of War, the upcoming sequel to Shadow of Mordor, the Action RPG set in the Lord of the Rings universe. Check out the open world look below:

The trailer shows some of the breadth of the open world we will be seeing in the game. From castles to vistas there will be a lot of scenery to explore and in true Tolkien fashion, much of it will be gorgeous. Of course, the series isn’t what it is without some visceral hacking of orcs, and the trailer has plenty of that too!

Shadow of War releases August 22nd for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. Keep checking back with us for more leading up to its release.

    Kinda shocked at the low quality of the graphics… perhaps my video wasn’t showing full res? Or is this more MMO-like than I thought?

    I think some of this has to do with the new large scale battles full of AI followers. I’m guessing that’s going to demand a lot of power and some of the visuals have to be scaled back during those moments? During those big battles is where I noticed it looking off in the trailer.
