Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced the Nemesis Forge, a new update for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor that will allow a player to bring their top Nemesis and Follower from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor to Middle-earth: Shadow of War when it releases on October 10, 2017.
In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, players created countless personal stories of revenge through the unique enemies and allies generated by the Nemesis System. With the Nemesis Forge, these stories continue in Middle-earth: Shadow of War by importing a returning player’s arch Nemesis from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, while also identifying a player’s most loyal Orc follower, who can help fight and defend against Sauron’s forces. The Nemesis Forge is now available for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and Steam™.
For newcomers to the series who want to create their own unique Nemesis, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is available to try out for free on Xbox One and Steam™ starting today at 4pm BST through July 9.
Additionally, players will be able to purchase Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and Steam™ for 80 per cent off the regular price. The sale timing for each platform is listed below:
