Shadow of War will be available from August 22 for the PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, and PC. The company highlights a release for Project Scorpio as well as the Windows Store. This possibly indicates that Microsoft has secured marketing rights to the game. In the past, the likes of Dead Rising 4 and Rise of the Tomb Raider saw PC releases on the Windows Store as a part of timed exclusivity with Microsoft.
Games from Warner Bros are usually in line with what you’d expect from the likes of Square Enix — Rs. 3,499 for console versions and Rs. 999 for PC. However with the game due for release after GST, we may see the price change.
“This next journey to Middle-earth will bring back Talion and Celebrimbor, who return as the Bright Lord as they go behind enemy lines to turn all of Mordor against the Dark Lord, Sauron. Middle-earth: Shadow of War expands upon the award-winning Nemesis System, introducing entirely new stories of loyalty, betrayal and revenge,” a prepared statement from Warner Bros reads.
A follow up to Shadow of Mordor should be expected considering how well the first game did. It sold around 1.9 million copies on PC alone and a performed strongly on consoles as well.
