Middle-earth: Shadow Of War Gameplay Teaser Shows Talion Flying On A Winged Beast

See the full thing on March 8.


Warner Bros. will share the first official gameplay video for Middle-earth: Shadow of War this coming Wednesday, March 8. Ahead of that, the publisher has released a new teaser that offers a blink-and-you'll-miss-it look at new gameplay.

It doesn't reveal much, but it does show main character Talion riding a winged beast, possibly a Drake. The closing section shows Talion raising his sword with Orcs behind him.

Shadow of War, a sequel to 2014's Shadow of Mordor, was announced last week. It is scheduled to launch on August 22 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam and Windows 10).

The game is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and promises a "richer, more personal, and expansive world" for Shadow of War. Players can expect to see "epic heroes and villains," as well as "iconic locations, original enemy types, even more personalities, and a new cast of characters with untold stories."

The Mithril Edition of Shadow of War, priced at $300, comes with a 12-inch statue that depicts the battle between a Tar-Goroth Balrog and a Carnan Drake, and other bonuses. A $100 Gold Edition, which is included in the Mithril Edition, comes with the base game and various DLC, including story expansions.
