The good folks at IGN have some exclusive new footage for Middle-Earth: Shadow of War today. This time taking us to Minas Ithil, one of the human cities on display in the game, we get a look at the familiar gameplay flow. Hunt orcs, command them, control them, and gain information before making a final assault.

Is Shadow of War going to be “more of the same” as Shadow of Mordor? God, we can only hope so.

What is Middle-earth: Shadow of War?

Shadow of War continues the previous game’s narrative, based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s legendarium with events occurring between those of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Like its predecessor, the game also takes heavy inspiration from director Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings film adaptations. The player continues the story of the ranger Talion who shares his body with the spirit of the elf lord Celebrimbor, as they use one of the Rings of Power to amass an army to fight against Sauron and his Nazgûl forces. The game builds upon the Nemesis system introduced in Shadow of Mordor, allowing Talion to gain Followers from several races of Middle-earth including Uruk-Hai and Olog-hai and plan out complex strategies using these to complete missions.
