Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Gets Update and Deep Discount Ahead of Sequel

By Mark Delaney,
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has been given a substantial new update and a hefty sale price. The "Nemesis Forge" free update allows players to identify their greatest ally and rival by way of the game's now famous Nemesis System, and include them in October's sequel, Middle-earth: Shadow of War.

The Nemesis System, for those who have not yet played, allows emergent stories between player and AI enemies to develop over the course of the game. Send an enemy fleeing and he may return humbled but infuriated later on. Die at the hands of an Uruk and he'll taunt or fear you when you return to exact your revenge. Driven by player history, the Nemesis System is still unique to the Middle-earth series to date. This new update expands it further and delivers more on the sequel's tagline, "Nothing Will Be Forgotten".


If you haven't played it yet or would like to stack the trophy list for the Game of the Year Edition, it's currently on sale to promote this new update. You can grab the game for a deep discount until July 19th. Regional pricing can be seen below.

Meanwhile, the game's sequel Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available on October 10th.
