In preparation for the release of Middle Earth: Shadow of War a mobile version of the game launched today for IOS and Android devices. The game was developed by IUGO, in partnership with WB Games San Francisco and Monolith Productions. It is a free to play strategy game that allows players to fight against foes and even take down Sauron.
The characters that players are allowed to choose from include but aren’t limited too the heroes of the game Talion and Celebrimbor, as well as Gandalf, Gimli, and even the revamped version of Shelob. In the game Celebrimbor has created new rings of power and the player is tasked with collected as many as they can in order for their skills to grow so they can battle the likes of the Orcs as well as the dark lord.
Each battle that takes place will be real time and will feature squads that the player themselves will put together. The mobile will also feature the franchise’s nemesis system. This means just like in the main games, enemies will remember you. WB Games San Fransisco boss Jonathan Knight commented on his experience on working with IUGO during the partnership in a statement.
“We’re thrilled to have collaborated with the incredible team at IUGO whose passion and innovation were paramount in creating an authentic Middle-earth adventure on mobile that lives up to players’ expectations. Together we’ve brought to life Middle-earth’s greatest Champions and combined that with the award-winning Nemesis System, setting the stage for an epic battle against Sauron and his armies to take back Middle-earth.”
