“Middle-earth: Shadow of War” Gets A Delay

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Monolith Productions have pushed back the release date of the upcoming “Middle-earth: Shadow of War” by a month-and-a-half.

Originally slated for August 22nd, the game will now arrive October 10th. In a statement, the developers say:

“We understand that it might be disappointing to have to wait a little longer for the release and are sorry for the delay, but we are working hard to make an amazing game. We’re excited to show more at E3.”

The original story features the return of Talion and Celebrimbor, who must go behind enemy lines to forge an army and turn all of Mordor against Sauron.

The robust personalization of the award-winning Nemesis System from the first game is now applied to the entire world where the environments and characters are all shaped by player actions and decisions, creating a personal world unique to every gameplay experience.

The game will be available on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 upon release.
