Just 5 days before its launch, Warner Bros. and Monolith are showing the world what Shadow of War is all about… and this time Bruz the Chopper is back from his star debut at e3 too. Watch the Shadow of War 101 trailer and get hyped.
Reviews are coming in, and so far it seems like the sequel is a worthy, if somewhat bloated and micro-transaction-filled adventure that gives us more of the same great action on a whole new level. Our own review will be coming soon, we hope!
From the Gamecrate review:
Shadow of War’s focus on preparation before combat will have you feeling like Batman, while its chaotic fortress assaults wouldn’t feel out of place in a war game. The story is exciting and interesting whether you’re a Tolkien fan or not, and the writing is consistently strong and often hilarious.
We’ve never seen an action game that grows and expands as well as Shadow of War does. It was a brilliant move to build the “after the end” sandbox mode into the core campaign, because this is a game you’re not going to want to stop playing for a long time.
