Monolith surprised us with the release of a special Nemesis system for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. This complex system generates enemies automatically, and makes the entire gameplay feel more fluid, and all the components of the action are better anchored. Such a system is great, and the developer knows that, so it decided to bring it to the sequel Shadow of War as well.
Import your enemies and allies into the Middle-earth sequel
This has probably convinced you that Shadow of War will be great. However, it’s not over yet. If you grew attached to your allies in Shadow of Mordor, or want to get the chance to fight the same fierce enemies, you will be able to take them with you in the sequel. All these exciting changes will come under the update called Nemesis Forge.
Also, making use of the update is easier than you thought. All you have to do is open Shadow of Mordor and select the Nemesis Forge gaming mode. The mode will assume you’ve gathered enough experience in the game to detect the enemy with the highest rank. Also, it can find out who your most loyal Orc is, and then gets them ready for import to Shadow of War when the game is ready.
How to access the Nemesis Forge update
However, Nemesis Forge is available only under certain conditions. You have to purchase both Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War, and that on PC. However, Monolith might have used a misleading phrasing, since the update is available on PS4 and Xbox One as well.
To celebrate the update, Shadow of Mordor has been available to play for free up until now. Also, this could have been a strategy to attract new players and increase its fanbase. Also, you can still purchase the special Game of the Year edition for only $4.
