Early Sunday morning, Target leaked the sequel to Shadow of Mordor, titled Shadow of War, on their website through an error in their search system, complete with cover art. A quick blurb about some of the features was available before Target took down the results.
For those who didn't play Shadow of Mordor, you should really go revisit it. It plays like the Batman games from Rocksteady Studios, but allows you to challenge the pecking order of Sauron's growing orc army with the Nemesis System. Certain orc's carry certain ranks, and as you defeat them, they are removed from the board. This allows each encounter to feel a little more varied from standard beat em ups like Assassin's Creed. Oh, and if an orc kills you, he increases in power and moves up in rank.
WB Games sent out a 'Save the Date' for March 8th for an upcoming game announcement. While many people speculated that the game announced would be a new iteration of the Batman Arkham games, I am pleasantly surprised that Shadow of Mordor is getting the sequel it rightly deserves with Shadow of War.
UPDATE: WB Games has officially announced the game, and has released a cinematic trailer.
