Target Leak (Possibly) Reveals Shadow of Mordor Sequel
What would gaming news be without retailers bumbling about like Looney Tunes characters?
[Update] Here's the cinematic trailer. A gameplay trailer is slated for next week.
Today's tidbit comes from a now-deleted Target listing (preserved here)for Middle-earth: Shadow of War, the sequel to 2014's superb Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The listing pegs it for an August release on current gen consoles, and the description says it will likely stay close to it's roots:
A developer is not mentioned, but presumably Monolith is back for the sequel. A Gold Edition that seems to include a DLC season pass was also part of the listing for $100.
I loved Shadow of Mordor, but I dearly hope the sequel evolves a bit. At this point I think we can clearly state that this is a genre in and of itself. Assassins-esque? Creed-like? OWMMG (Open World Melee Murder Game)?
