Middle Earth: Shadow of War Mobile Game Announced

The Middle-earth games are expanding into mobile territory with a new free-to-play game.

Earlier today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced Middle-earth: Shadow of War Mobile, a free-to-play real-time RPG that allows players to continue Talion's journey through Mordor. 

The announcement trailer for the game featured real-time, party-based combat, with several characters from the Lord of Rings franchise making an appearance, including Boromir, Gollum, and Gimli. Though details on the game's story -- if there is any -- are scarce, the presence of Talion's old friend Ratbag in the trailer implies that this game will probably not be fitting into any canon. According to a press release for the game, Middle-earth: Shadow of War Mobile will also include the Nemesis System, allowing for a more personal gameplay experience. 

Middle-earth: Shadow of War Mobile is listed as "coming soon" for both iOS and Android. Players are able to pre-register for the game to receive the exclusive Ratbag and starting Orc army (iOS users) or the special fair-form Shelob character (Android users).
