Today Monolith Productions showcased aout half a hour of gameplay of its upcoming action RPG Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
The gameplay showcases one of the interesting features of the game. You can send your orcs to infiltrate an enemy stronghold, but it won’t be peaceful. They will have to conquer the trust of the hosts by fighting a duel in an orc pit.
The interesting element is that you won’t be involved besides having to reach a certain location and choosing the candidate. It’ll be a fight completely governed by the AI, and your orc will either die or win and successfully infiltrate the fort.
Following a successful infiltration, our orcs will be able to betray their new masters in our favor when the time to take the fort comes.
If you want to see even more about the game, you can see how the game’s Executive Producer has been immortalized in the title after passing away, enjoy the the “Orc Tales” trailer released a couple of weeks ago, a video showing off the endgame, a rather long one showing more of Cirith Ungol and the Terror Tribe, more gameplay footage showing the marketplace, some more gameplay from San Diego Comic Con, the trailer featuring the unique version of Shelob included in the game, another story trailer, and one revealing the Nemesis Forge system.
The game will launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 10.
