Warner Bros. Entertainment’s Middle-earth: Shadow of War arrived in the App Store today for iPhone and iPad. The free-to-play strategy RPG continues Talion’s journey through Mordor and unites Middle-earth’s most renowned Champions with the most fearsome of Orcs, who team up in a bid to vanquish the Dark Lord, Sauron.
The storyline sees Celebrimbor, the master ring-maker, forging new Rings of Power and asking Champions across Middle-earth to band together to participate in the Shadow War against Sauron’s legions. With each ring that you obtain, you can sharpen and hone your character’s special skills to help them defeat Sauron and his army.
Gameplay involves real-time battles between personal armies that are assembled from a big roster of iconic Champions such as Talion, Celebrimbor, and Shelob from the forthcoming Middle-earth: Shadow of War console game, as well as many of the most beloved characters from The Lord of the Rings, such as Gimli and Gandalf.
“We’re thrilled to have collaborated with the incredible team at IUGO whose passion and innovation were paramount in creating an authentic Middle-earth adventure on mobile that lives up to players’ expectations,” said Jonathan Knight, VP, Studio Head at WB Games San Francisco. “Together we’ve brought to life Middle-earth’s greatest Champions and combined that with the award-winning Nemesis System, setting the stage for an epic battle against Sauron and his armies to take back Middle-earth.”
With this latest game, the award-winning Nemesis System comes to iOS, meaning that each Orc enemy will remember all past encounters and battles and create unique experiences for every player. You can then choose whether the Orcs that you recruit are executed in exchange for upgrade rewards or are conscripted into your army to fight for you.
