Engage in epic battles, forge new friendships, confront powerful villains, and discover hidden treasures during your epic Middle-earth adventure!

From engaging combat sequences to large scale strategic battles, Shadow of War offers heart pounding action for everyone. With an improved Nemesis system that creates unique enemies with different strengths and weaknesses, challenge yourself by taking down never before seen orcs that randomly spawn each time you play. In addition to commanding Sauron's orc armies, dominate fortresses during massive sieges and build a personalised fortress to protect your army from incoming foes. Whether you approach your battles from the frontlines or play tactically behind enemy lines - Middle-earth Shadow of War lets you experience legendary adventures in novel ways each time you come back for more!

Tolkien like never before as you take on the role of Talion and attempt to dominate Mordor and build an army through commanding Orcs, Uruks, and more.

Secure Your Stronghold

Forge your own powerful stronghold in an iconic Mordor location such as Cirith Ungol or Seregost to bring other Talion allies together. Assemble strong armies while strategizing battles with customizable tactics for each orc captain on the battlefield. Engage in Epic Nemesis Forts where foes are always evolving — influencing gameplay for every epic battle opportunity and showcasing unique personalities for every enemy you meet. No two adversaries will fight in exactly the same way — guaranteeing a unique adventure for every player that steps foot into Shadow of War's dark lands! Plus, take control with friends who can join forces in Multiplayer mode for competitive online games against one another or a shared foe; uniting under their own personalised banners as they rise to conquer Sauron’s forces in this dangerously addictive game full of action, strategy, and power struggles.

Sam J
Staff Review
I loved Shadow of Mordor, and Shadow of War continued to scratch that LOTR-esque itch. The battles are huge - you have the constant threat of Orcs betraying you mid-combat, dragons flying overhead and the imminent smell of victory/defeat by keeping enemies at bay beyond your fortress or storming into an enemy's base to take it for your own. The game, like the original, has a great skill tree system for upgrading Talion and Celebrimbor's abilities too. If you played and enjoyed Shadow of Mordor, it's definitely worth checking out this sequel!

Game was amazing and played great on the steam deck. Only disappointment was that the last 2 bosses were barely bosses.

A Must-Have Package!

Excellent bundle, even though some of the content is too strange to be paid for (extra tribes) the DLC story packs are worth it. Great package for the price, as the base game is great!

A good action adventure game, that is easy to master, but enthralling in it's own way.

If you've played the first game, this is much the same, but with a few evolutions. The combat is a bit smoother, and the world has more choice (though still limited by the story). There are many more skills to try and therein lies different paths, and at the end of the day, play styles. You can tailor your hero to how you want to play the game, by choosing your skill path. For newcomers, who haven't played the first title, this is an action adventure, set in the realms of 'The lord of the Rings' & 'The Hobbit'. It is a game of combos, a little stealth and a touch of strategy. IT is not as deep as it first mat appear, but that's not really a bad thing, as it is easy to pick up and play, and lets you feel like you have mastered it and become quite a powerful character in doing so. It is fun, and definitely worth picking up, especially if you can find it on sale.

Great game. It improves on the 1st one greatly. It's like Lord of the Rings and Assassin's Creed had a baby
