Given how the best feature in Shadow of Mordor was the Nemesis system, it really shouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear that Shadow of War will be putting even more emphasis on it. There will be a greater variety of Orcs to mess around with, you will be able to either recruit or straight up kill them, assign the loyal ones different types of roles, and the list goes on for quite a while.

While the recently posted interactive trailer won't exactly tell you how this system works in-game, it should give you a pretty damn good idea of what the new Nemesis system is all about. You can find the full 'adventure' over at the official website, but for now here's the trailer just so you know what you're getting yourself into:

If this looks like something you would love to play around with, you'll be glad to hear that you won't have to wait for very long as Shadow of War is set to arrive on October 10th for PC and consoles.

While this is somewhat unrelated to the Nemesis system, its important to also mention that Shadow of War will have quite a few microtransactions available at launch. So if you're not a fan of Loot Boxes or any such nonsense in singleplayer games, you might want to wait until a GOTY Edition arrives somewhere down the line.
