At Xbox’s E3 2017 Briefing, Monolith Productions formally revealed a new gameplay trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War. 

The gameplay looks phenomenal, building off of the nemesis system for the initial game, and the recruitment system. The seven minute gameplay trailer (shared by YouTuber GamersPrey) shows off some of the pristine combat, terrific voice acting, and environments.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War has been a bit of a technical showcase for both Monolith Productions and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Both the studio, publisher, and teams working with Shadow of War have boasted the stunning 4K graphics in a variety of trailers.

And, more importantly, Middle-earth: Shadow of War has managed to keep in the news for a substantial period of time despite the early announcement. Only earlier this week, Monolith debuted the game’s official story trailer and announced that esteemed voice actor Troy Baker would be making his triumphant return as series protagonist, Talion.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War was originally shown of in February of this year, with the launch date being delayed from August to October 10, 2017 on PC, PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X. As you can imagine, DualShockers is going hands-on with WBIE and Monolith to give our first-hand impression with Middle-earth. Follow us through the week for more coverage and impressions.
