About Middle-earth™: Shadow of War™ Standard Edition

About this game

The hit sequel from Monolith Productions, Middle-earth Shadow of War, has more Orks than you can shake a sword at.

Return To Mordor

Set in an entirely new region of Middle-earth, this open-world videogame allows players to explore the epic realm of Mordor and uncover its secrets. Players will take on the role of Talion as he embarks on a treacherous journey characterised by intense action and memorable moments. Engage in epic battles, forge new friendships, confront powerful villains, and discover hidden treasures during your epic Middle-earth adventure! 

Engage Your Nemesis

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! 

More Than A Movie

Go beyond the movies with Middle-earth Shadow of War – a thrilling, engaging videogame from Monolith Productions. Experience the legendary universe of J.R.R. Tolkien like never before as you take on the role of Talion and attempt to dominate Mordor and build an army by 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.

Huge battles - addictive gameplay

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!
