Most of us had a jolly time mind-controlling Orcs in Shadow of Mordor, but many also wondered “could it be less brown?” Monolith appear to have had the same thought, because the sequel, Shadow of War, looks rather more varied in its environments.
It’s still set in Mordor, so there’s only so much they can really do. But the new two minute trailer showing off various parts of the open world has at least two or three different biomes to enjoy. Looks like some areas of greenery will be returning, along with snowy bits, lots of castles, and, god forbid, even some sunshine.
Plenty of new colours to take in while Ranger Talion and his merry band of misfits are charging at a gate and yelling. Shadow of War is coming out on 22 August. Here’s the video.
