Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (review) and its forthcoming sequel, Middle-earth: Shadow of War have set hungry sights on your time. Warner Bros is apparently leaving little to chance that the games garner your attention with three temptations.

First off, Warner Bros has announced a new update that brings the Nemesis Forge to Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. This will allow players to import import both their arch nemesis from the game into the sequel, as well as identify and call forth their most loyal Orc follower to come with them into Shadow of War as well.   

Players who have yet to return to Middle-earth and go medieval on Sauron’s forces are also being given the chance to create their own Nemesis, and try out the game for free until the 9th of July on Xbox One and Steam.

Furthermore, for those who don’t yet own the game and are willing to embrace a little more commitment, the game has also had its full price slashed, reduced down by 80%. Depending on your platform, you may have to act fast to take advantage of the sale though. It is set to expire on 10 July, 11 July and 17 July for PC (via Steam), PS4 and Xbox One respectively.

All this of course, to intended to lead up to the release of Middle-earth: Shadow of War, which is set to drop on 10 October on PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X and PC. In the meantime though, you can view more about the Nemesis Forge in action in the trailer below, and reacquaint yourself with the game in the trailer beneath that.
