The sequel to Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, which won the award for Game of the Year at the Game Developers Choice Awards 2015, Shadow of War just gave gamers over the world one more reason to be excited when it was announced that the Xbox Scorpio will support the game. This means buying a digital copy from the Xbox Store or Windows Store, you’ll also get a copy for Project Scorpio when the console launches at no additional charge.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is set to release in August this year also for PS4, Xbox One, Steam and Windows 10 where it will be a Xbox Play anywhere title which means users can flip between the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions at will.
Developed by Monolith, Middle-earth: Shadow of War sees the return of Talion and Celebrimbor, who must forge an army to defeat Sauron.
In fact, players will have to directly fight against Sauron and his Nazgul, as they wield a new ring of power.
“The open-world action-adventure game is brought to life through the expansion of the award-winning Nemesis System,” Warner explains.
“The robust personalisation from the first game is now applied to the entire world where the environments and characters are all shaped by player actions and decisions, creating a personal world unique to every gameplay experience.”
Coming back to the Project Scorpio, Microsoft claims it will be the most powerful console ever, featuring 6 Teraflops of graphical processing power, true 4K gaming, and compatibility with Xbox One games and accessories. Microsoft have also been seen taking digs at Sony for the PS4 Pro not being able to handle true 4K according to them and that Xbox is aiming much higher.
Although Xbox has not confirmed a release date for the Project Scorpio they will hold a briefing on June 11,2017 for a full reveal of the project.
