Shadow of War Is Shadow of Mordor 2 According to Retail Leak
Highlights
  • Shadow of War has been listed on US retailer Target
  • It seems to be the sequel to 2014's Shadow of Mordor
  • The game appears to have a standard and gold edition

Last year Gadgets 360 reported that Shadow of Mordor 2 was in the works thanks to the discovery of the resume of its stunt actor. At the time evidence suggested that it would be called Shadow of Mordor 2 and would see an E3 2016 reveal. This appears to be wrong on both counts.

Shadow of War for the PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox Scorpio, and Windows 10 PC Confirmed

Not only was publisher Warner Bros mum on a sequel to 2014’s Shadow of Mordor at E3 2016, but it appears to take on a new name, Shadow of War.

According to a listing spotted on US retailer target, Shadow of War is possibly the sequel to Shadow of Mordor.

“Experience an epic open-world brought to life by the award-winning Nemesis System. Forge a new Ring of Power, conquer Fortresses in massive battles and dominate Mordor with your personal Orc army in Middle-earth: Shadow of War,” reads the listing on Target’s website.

The site lists two versions of the game for the PS4 and Xbox One, a standard edition for $59.99 and a Gold Edition for $99.99. No PC version has been listed, though it's safe to say that could end up being digital-only for most regions. Typically India prices for games from Warner Bros cost Rs. 3,499 on console and Rs. 999 on PC.

Shadow of War Gold Edition details:

• Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion
• Outlaw Tribe Nemesis Expansion
• The Blade of Galadriel Story Expansion
• The Desolation of Mordor Story Expansion
• Gold War Chest
• Over $125 in total value

A follow up to Shadow of Mordor should be expected considering how well the first game did. It sold around 1.9 million copies on PC alone and a performed strongly on consoles as well. Throw in the fact the developer Monolith Productions has been working on an unannounced game and been on a hiring spree makes this all the more likely. We think it’s just a matter of time before Warner Bros confirms this officially.

Update, February 27, 2017: Games The Shop, the retail arm of Warner Bros' Indian distributor E-Xpress has shared news of the game being leaked. Granted it cites the likes of Kotaku being the source, it's not unusual for retailers and distributors to know of a game's impending announcement before it happens. Perhaps it's a sly acknowledgement to Shadow of War's official public reveal? Hopefully sooner, rather than later.
