One feature that fans heavily requested in the first Middle Earth game was multiplayer and it would appear that some of your prayers have been answered with Middle Earth Shadow of War multiplayer being revealed.
The Middle Earth Shadow of War multiplayer is not exactly the conventional type. The multiplayer features won’t go as far as allowing you to play with or directly against your friends, instead the multiplayer is focused around a kind of tower defence mode.
The mode called Social Conquest will revolve around you fighting to control a player made base by defeating all of the defending forces. By winning these fights your army will grow stronger and prove more of a challenge to any players wishing to attack your base.
This may not be the kind of multiplayer that players were expecting but with a massive open world and lots of quests to complete this mode will probably not be the main focus of the majority of the games player base.
Go behind enemy lines to forge your army, conquer Fortresses and dominate Mordor from within. Experience how the award winning Nemesis System creates unique personal stories with every enemy and follower, and confront the full power of the Dark Lord Sauron and his Ringwraiths in this epic new story of Middle-earth.
In Middle-earth: Shadow of War, nothing will be forgotten.
