VideoGame News: First Gameplay Trailer for Middle Earth Shadow of War

Today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment revealed the first gameplay footage of Middle-earth: Shadow of War, the sequel to the critically acclaimed Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.

This Gameplay Walkthrough introduces viewers to the next generation of the innovative Nemesis System with the addition of Nemesis Fortresses, where players must utilise different strategies to conquer dynamic strongholds and forge their personalised Orc army. In this video, Talion and Celebrimbor, who return as the Bright Lord, must lead a fortress assault on the mountain valley of Seregost and take it from one of Sauron’s Overlords. To succeed, they will use the power of the New Ring to recruit Followers during enemy encounters—a new mechanic allowing gamers to establish entirely new stories of loyalty, betrayal and revenge. This Gameplay Walkthrough is just one of the millions of possibilities that players will experience in Middle-earth: Shadow of War.

Set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth: Shadow of War is an open-world action RPG that continues the original narrative of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Players will be engrossed in a richer, more personal and expansive world full of epic heroes and villains, iconic locations, original enemy types, more personalities and a new cast of characters with untold stories.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available for Xbox One, Project Scorpio, Windows 10 PC (Windows Store and Steam), PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro beginning 25 August, 2017.

Trustmaster Ghost Recon HS

In certain sensitive situations – like an elite unit of four Ghosts, stealthily carrying out high-risk missions in the rugged terrain of Bolivia – mastery of what you say and what you hear takes on life-or-death importance. With its ground-breaking new headsets, Thrustmaster is taking these senses to a whole new level, allowing gamers to optimize their exchanges with team members. This results in crystal-clear communication between your squad,  and the ability to hear even the slightest sounds from far away, allowing you to anticipate and respond to whatever this hostile environment might throw at you. To achieve this, these headsets have been designed to reflect the game’s audio signature with pinpoint accuracy, using the Thrustmaster development teams’ own in-house, state-of-the-art anechoic chamber.

The two flagship models of this range are the Y-350X 7.1 Powered GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition and the Y-350P 7.1 Powered GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition. Both feature a 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound audio system via the Y Sound Commander controller. The former is officially licensed for Xbox One, and the latter for PlayStation4. What’s more, the PlayStation 4 version is a worldwide exclusive with the Y Sound Commander, marking the first use of this award-winning technology on this platform. Both of these headsets plunge gamers into the vast expanses of the Bolivian wildlands in truly breath-taking fashion.

In order to meet the needs of a wider cross-section of gamers, Thrustmaster will also be offering a GHOST RECON WILDLANDS edition of its best-selling Y-300CPX model: a multiplatform headset, for full compatibility with PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 systems, Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360 and Mac.

  • Thrustmaster’s range of Ghost Recon Wildlands gaming headsets will be available from March 7, 2017 at suggested retail prices of £49.99 (taxes included) for the Y-300CPX GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition (multiplatform), and £119.99 (taxes included) for the Y-350X 7.1 Powered GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition (Xbox One®) and the Y-350P 7.1 Powered GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition (PlayStation®4).
