Rumours have been about that Warner Bros Interactive has been working on a sequel to Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor, the open world title set in the Lord Of The Rings universe. The company is also scheduled to announce something on March 8th, with some being of the opinion of a new Batman title and others backing the next Middle Earth title. American superstore Target may have just spoiled the surprise as a listing for Middle Earth: Shadow Of War has appeared on the store’s website.
When you click through to you can read the item description, and it suggests you’ll be doing more than slaying Orcs.
Go behind enemy lines to forge your army, conquer Fortresses and dominate Mordor from within. Experience how the award winning Nemesis System creates unique personal stories with every enemy and follower, and confront the full power of the Dark Lord Sauron and his Ringwraiths in this epic new story of Middle-earth.
In Middle-earth: Shadow of War, nothing will be forgotten.
It’s likely we’ll see an evolution of the Nemesis system and if you’re forging an army that may mean having people you command to carry out orders. As you can see from the shot above there’s a regular edition and a Gold Edition, which Target has helpfully detailed in the item description too. The Gold Edition will apparently feature four expansions and something called the Gold War Chest, which could be special weapons and items.
• Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion
• Outlaw Tribe Nemesis Expansion
• The Blade of Galadriel Story Expansion
• The Desolation of Mordor Story Expansion
• Gold War Chest
• Over $125 in total value
It’s likely Target will be forced to remove the page by Warner Bros Interactive soon, but if you wanted a new Middle Earth title you’re pretty much guaranteed to get it.
