Back in 2014, developer Monolith Productions released Middle-earth: Shadow of Modor to critical and financial success. A problem some had with the game was a lack of a meatier endgame. Three years later, Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be releasing on October 10th. Monolith has now released new details about the endgame in Shadow of War.
First reported by Eurogamer, a mini campaign called “Shadow Wars” will be available once you beat the main story of the game. In this mode, you are tasked with defending the fortress you captured in the main game. Failing to defend a fortress will result in you losing that fortress. You will then be tasked with reclaiming the fort and rescuing the Orc Overlord you put in there the first place. The length of this mini campaign has not yet been revealed. Shadow Wars will be broken up into stages and each stage is more difficult than the one before it. Once you complete all the content in the game, you will be awarded with Shadow of War’s true ending. This ending is supposed to bridge together Shadow of War with the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
Some criticism that Shadow of Modor had was being too easy later on in the game and not having meaningful endgame content. It seems the sequel is already aiming to improve from its predecessor. Having something to look forward to after the main game is always appreciated and leaves a lot to forward to in the near future. Middle-Earth: Shadow of War releases October 10th for PS4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. A free-to-play top-down version of the game will also be available at launch for IOS and Android.
