NVIDIA to Give Away 50K Copies of Shadow of Mordor Tomorrow

GeForce Giveaways just got a hell of a lot more Orc-y.

11

Warner Bros. Interactive will unleash Middle-earth: Shadow of War onto digital and retail shelves on October 10. For 50,000 lucky PC gamers, Christmas in Middle Earth may be coming a couple of weeks early. nVidia announced that registered users of the GeForce Experience will be randomly chosen tomorrow to receive a free product key for the original Orc-trolling simulator, Shadow of Mordor.

Shadow of War is developer Monolith’s follow up to the 2014 smash hit, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Shadow of War promises to be bigger and badder than its predecessor in every way and will mark the return of the innovative Nemesis system from the first game. nVidia released direct-capture footage of the PC version of Shadow of War running at 4K 60fps last month, You can check out the footage below.

Warner Bros. Interactive had originally planned to release Shadow of War in August, but announced plans in June to push back the release date to October. Shacknews secured some exclusive gameplay capture back in June that you can check out below! You can grab the GeForce Experience that is required to be eligible for the giveaway here.

      50,000 copies of the game given for free? That seems like a really crazy number of games to give away for free...

        They bundle new games in with hardware all the time. This is them trying to get more people using Geforce Experience I guess.

        Not for $7 it isn't. You only get Shadow of War for $80+. Shadow of Mordor is $7.36 or so (and totally worth it).

      Man when the third game comes out called Shadow of Wardor this is going to be even more confusing.

      So can you be in just by creating a account on the site? Or have to have the Geforce exp installed?

      And meanwhile some enterprising folks will “buy” 100 copies of the game from Newegg for $0.01/each when nvidia bundles this with a new card.
