Players will be engrossed in a richer, more personal and expansive world full of epic heroes and villains, iconic locations, original enemy types, more personalities and a new cast of characters with untold stories.

In recent news, Middle-earth: Shadow of War has been delayed to October. The title was originally set to release on August 22, but it seems that the game needs a little more time.
