Microsoft’s E3 2017 conference was host to over 40 games, 22 of which were promised Xbox exclusives. Monolith Productions showed a new gameplay trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War that gave new insight into the updated nemesis system.
The nemesis system in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor immediately set the game apart when it released back in 2014. The major changes fans of the series can expect are fortress assaults and the ability to bring enemies under your control. In the trailer, the recruited enemy provides intel and even assists in the fortress assaults. Aside from gameplay mechanics, we also got a look at some of the new, beautiful environments that you will be able to explore in the finished game.
The first official conference of E3 2017 has yet to disappoint, but there is plenty more still to come! Here is an official schedule for your viewing pleasure, and make sure to stick around for Bethesda’s conference later tonight! And, as always, keep an eye on The Nerd Stash as we will be showing and covering the events live!
