Fans of the super popular and award-winning Shadow of Mordor will be more than ready for the third person open world RPG sequel. Wedged between the storylines of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, Shadow of War continues on from the end of the last game.

Tailon from the original game is half dead and sharing his body with a dark elf spirit called Celebrimbor. Together they forged a ring so they could bring a giant army together to fight Sauron. The main aim is to defeat Sauron but there’s a lot standing in your way – including thousands of loyal followers and a huge army. Luckily for you, Celebrimbor has passed on a few mythical powers to help you out.
Taking on your enemies has been the main part of most games, but it’s not often that you then get to control them and turn them to your cause. Beat up your enemies as much as you like, then recruit them using Celebrimbor’s mind powers. Now that they are on your side, it’s up to you how and when you use them.

Before you step onto the next battlefield you will need to plan your attack, who are you taking with you and who’s staying behind. Remember though that every fortress will have different tactics, occupants and weaknesses. While bruiser orcs might be great at breaking through the main gates, they aren’t so good when it comes to long-distance snipers, so plan accordingly.

If you have been impressed with one particular orcs behaviour, let them see your gratitude – give them a castle. They take care of it while your continuing your chase after Sauron, and they protect it from any raiders whilst your away. Just be prepared that when you appoint someone to take care of a new stronghold, the stronghold itself and the surroundings will change to match their original tribe. Just make sure you have appointed someone trust worthy to take care of your new lands, as there’s a strong chance that Sauron and his army will be paying a visit.

The updated game mechanics mean that even the smallest of decisions that you make will influence the full world, so the gameplay is more fluid and reactive to you, instead of being stuck to a script. The social conquest mode adds another fun element, allowing players to purchase upgrades for their strongholds and share their designs online. Be careful though as once your holding is online, it can be attacked. During attacks, the raiders will be able to kill and brand your army, although branded troops won’t disappear once the fight is over.

If you decide that you’re the one who wants to do the raiding, you will be offered two options – friendly or ranked. Friendly fights are what you would expect, you can attack without any dangerous risks. Ranked fights are more realistic, winners will improve their assault ratings and win in-game rewards, but you can lose valuable soldiers here, and if your captain dies in this fight, then they’re dead in the rest of the game too.
The Nemesis system is back again to help you train up and improve your skills as a warrior. This intelligent method of training pits you against auto-generated bosses who learn from your previous losses and mistakes.
