E3 2017: Middle-earth: Shadow of War Coming October 10

The follow up to Mordor showed off more of how to recruit followers and take on nasty overlords.

The highly anticipated Middle-earth: Shadow of War finally has a release date. The game will be coming out on October 10, and will be optimized for Xbox One X.

We got a look at some extended gameplay for the Shadow of Mordor sequel, although it looked a lot like the announcement gameplay with Talion recruiting more followers so that he has the right troop makeup to assault another overlord's fortress.

There weren't too many other details, and a gameplay trailer wasn't immediately released, so you'll have to satisfy your curiosity with this story video released late last week.

      I'm a bit more interested in this now. Still not sure if I want to basically replay the nemesis system, but they've put some thought into this. Although, the orcs and trolls look too clean. Needs to be way dirtier. But, that's the general problem with all graphics. Too clean.
