Middle-earth: Shadow of War won our Best of E3 in multiple categories, and now it’s looking like they are taking the game mobile. Fresh on the heels of the highly-successful mobile versions of games like Injustice 2, the team at Warner Bros. will be bringing Middle-earth: Shadow of War to Android and iOS at some point “later this year”. Let’s dig into the details…
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that Middle-earth: Shadow of War mobile, a free-to-play real-time RPG continuing Talion’s journey through Mordor, will feature iconic characters from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, including Celebrimbor, Eltariel, Gimli, Boromir and many more fan-favorites. Developed by IUGO Mobile Entertainment in partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Middle-earth: Shadow of War mobile will be available this fall on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and on Google Play for Android devices.
Starting today, fans can pre-register for the game at http://shadowofwar.com/mobile.
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.
The storyline will follow the same arc as Middle-earth: Shadow of War, letting the player crush the Orc army alongside Talion with multiple characters including a few fan favorites.
Certain that it will help overthrow Sauron and raise himself as a force for good in his place, Celebrimbor has forged a new ring of power. Alongside this ring of power, he has forged a series of minor rings that are bound to its fate and call to Champions across Middle-earth; wage the Shadow War and overthrow Sauron’s armies.
