Shadow of War artwork for an armored Barlog

It has been a little over a week since Shadow of War first got leaked, and already we have a surprisingly lengthy gameplay trailer going over most of the new additions. There's new spells and abilities on display, an entire army of Orcs you can control, as well as the surprisingly useful addition of Followers which can both spy on your enemies and help you in a pinch.

So if you're interested in seeing what Shadow of War has to offer, and how the gameplay has been improved since Shadow of Mordor, you'll find the gameplay preview right below. And don't worry about spoilers because the video doesn't go over anything you couldn't possibly deduce yourself. Anyway, have a look:

On the other hand, if you would like to learn a little bit more about the story and the lore behind Shadow of War, you'll find the cinematic trailer right here. While it won't give you much in terms of useful information its still quite a spectacle to behold, especially since it features both an armored Barlog and Sauron himself! But if you're just looking for the release date, Shadow of War will be coming to the PC and consoles on August 25th.
