Middle-earth: Shadow of War - Dominate the Open World Trailer

Warner Bros. Interactive dropped its latest trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War on us today. The latest look at the game gives us a glimpse of the title’s open world setting. Thus the title of it being “Dominate the Open World.” And by the looks of it, dominate we shall.

“Death Calls to You Again, Ranger.”

The YouTube summarization of the trailer is short but effective: “From Seregost to Gorgoroth, we will turn ALL of Middle-earth against Sauron. Dominate the open world in Middle-earth: Shadow of War.” And that’s what the clip features, “vast environments within Middle-earth, stretching beyond Mordor, and giving fans the first glimpse of various new environments to explore, including the Island of Nurn, Cirith Ungol, Gorgoroth and more.

The sequel to Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Middle-earth: Shadow of War put players back into the role of the Talion/Celebrimbor combo. Here’s Warner Bros.’s official description:

“Set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth: Shadow of War is an open-world action RPG that continues the original narrative of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.
