If you’d like to take Middle-Earth: Shadow of War with you at all times, then you’re sort of in luck. Today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment confirmed that there will be a mobile spin-off of the big, Lord of the Rings-inspired action behemoth, entitled Middle-Earth: Shadow of War Mobile.
In Middle-earth: Shadow of War mobile, fans return to Mordor to take part in real-time battles against powerful Orc enemies while gathering Middle-earth’s greatest champions to fight alongside Talion. Each character can be upgraded to bring a special set of skills and powered-up attacks into battle. Middle-earth: Shadow of War mobile also introduces the award-winning Nemesis System to mobile devices for the first time, giving players the chance to build their own Orc army and create countless personal game experiences in the process.
Players who pre-register for Apple devices will receive an exclusive character bundle featuring Ratbag and an Orc starter army, while fans who pre-register for Android devices will receive a version of Shelob in her fair form character, who will be playable for the first time on any platform. All content will be available at launch.
In addition to this reveal, we have for you a new trailer for the big, console versions of Middle-Earth: Shadow of War. This new look, which comes to us from the floors of the San Diego Comic-Con, is actually pretty historic, too, as it introduces the realm’s first black character: Shelob.
Both Middle-Earth: Shadow of War and Middle-Earth: Shadow of War Mobile will be released this fall.
