Middle-earth: Shadow of War is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and continues the story introduced in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The game hosts many new updates and story elements, but focuses on a bigger approach to the nemesis system introduced in Shadow of Mordor.

Players will be able to travel to iconic locations throughout Middle-earth and enlist many new companions into their army, while taking on enormous strongholds to gain more followers. This section of the game is separate from the open world aspect, which focuses on exploring and action systems.
