A new update to 2014's Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor now enables players to bring their biggest and baddest nemesis as well as their most loyal follower over to the upcoming sequel, Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
The new video posted on the official YouTube page of the game's publisher Warner Bros. explains the new feature in detail, which can be seen above. Essentially, Shadow of Mordor now includes a new option called Nemesis Forge, which will select the highest ranking enemy and ally to export to the sequel.
It's not confirmed whether players will be given the option to bring their nemesis and follower onto a different platform than what they played the original game on.
Moreover, for anyone who has yet to play the game, but still wants a chance to build up their own nemesis and follower, Shadow of Mordor is free to play until July 9 on Steam and Xbox One. Also, the Game of the Year Edition is heavily discounted on all platforms, including Steam, Microsoft Store, and the PlayStation Store.
The ability to continue the storyline of a hardened rival and a familiar ally is certainly a novel idea, something many fans will surely make use of once Middle-earth: Shadow of War releases later this year on October 10.
