Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment is following the critical success of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor with the almost-rhyming title of Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
This video showcases some of the beasts the player will encounter. Some taken directly from Mr Tolkien’s writings, others somewhat leaning on creative license.
All I can hope for is that the Balrog is as awesome as it should be, being as it would be one of the Maiar, the spiritual beings that helped shape Middle-earth to begin with. Here are some more details from Warner Bros:
Set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth: Shadow of War is an open world action RPG that continues the original narrative of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Players will be engrossed in a richer, more personal and expansive world full of epic heroes and villains, iconic locations, original enemy types, more personalities and a new cast of characters with untold stories
Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available for Xbox One X, Xbox One, Windows 10 PC (Windows Store and Steam), PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro beginning 11 October.
