Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, Danger Zone, Guardians of the Galaxy Episode 4, more added to Xbox Store

I’m not sure Kenny Loggins knew what he was about to unleash upon the world when he recorded “Danger Zone” in the late 80s. But after adding extra cool points to Top Gun and inspiring countless jokes on Archer, the phrase was borrowed by Three Fields for Danger Zone, their Burnout-inspired vehicular crack ’em up… and it’s now available to download for the Xbox One.

Also available to download for the Xbox One today are two big franchise games… WB Games and Monolith’s Middle-Earth: Shadow of War (which is also an Xbox Play Anywhere title) and Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy – Episode 4: Who Needs You.

Shelob isn’t just a giant spider in the latest Middle-Earth: Shadow of War trailer

Shelob is quite possibly the most famous spider in all of fiction, but the character will become so much more in this Fall’s Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.

“The Spider” revealed her human form to Talion and Celebrimbor in a new trailer for Middle-Earth: Shadow of War that was released during this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con. Players will actually approach Shelob as something of an ally, and she’ll provide visions that help push the game’s plot forward. While that sounds like a good deal for Talion, I’m not sure I’d be able to trust a giant spider.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 10.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War delayed by WB Games; October 10 is the new release date

In a post on the game’s official forums earlier today, Monolith Community Manager Andy Salisbury revealed that Middle-Earth: Shadow of War has officially been delayed. Originally scheduled to launch on August 22, the development team has decided to push back the game’s release to ensure they can deliver “the highest quality experience”:

Salisbury also confirmed that publisher WB Games will have Middle-Earth: Shadow of War on display at this year’s E3 Expo, and you can read his full statement right here:

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War will now launch worldwide on Oct. 10, 2017**.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War expands gameplay in every dimension, including the massive open world, the story, the RPG systems, and personal player stories of the Nemesis System. As with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Monolith is committed to delivering the highest quality experience. In order to do this, we have made the difficult decision to move our launch date to ensure that Middle-Earth: Shadow of War will deliver on that promise.

We understand that it might be disappointing to have to wait a little longer for the release and are sorry for the delay, but we are working hard to make an amazing game. We’re excited to show more at E3.

– The Middle-Earth: Shadow of War Team

**Some territories such as Australia, New Zealand and Japan will have a different release date.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War will now be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 10.

First Middle-Earth: Shadow of War gameplay walkthrough introduces improved Nemesis System

As foretold in last week’s announcement, WB Games and Monolith Productions have released the first gameplay walkthrough for Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.

The 16-minute video features a raid on a fortress in the mountain valley of Seregost, and reintroduces players to the Nemesis System. We also get our first look at Shadow of War’s personalized Orc army and how players can recruit followers to wage war against Sauron and his Overlords:

Witness firsthand the next generation of the innovative Nemesis System… featuring the addition of Nemesis Fortresses… where players must utilize different strategies to conquer dynamic strongholds and forge their personalized Orc army. In this video, Talion and Celebrimbor have used the power of the New Ring to recruit Followers in their assault on a fortress in the mountain valley of Seregost. This is just one of the millions of possibilities that players will experience in Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is currently in development for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and will be released on August 22.
