Middle-earth: Shadow of War coming to Android and iOS devices on September 28

Middle-earth: Shadow of War, the sequel to Monolith's highly-acclaimed Shadow of Mordor, is expected to make its debut on PC and consoles on October 10. Ahead of the official launch of the game, Warner Bros. has decided to release the mobile version of Shadow of War.

The publisher recently confirmed Middle-earth: Shadow of War will arrive on Android and iOS device on September 28, which will allow fans of the franchise to get a taste of what the PC and console game will offer.

Along with the confirmation of the release, the publisher released a trailer that explains the game's new Nemesis System, one of the gameplay mechanics that made the original game popular.

The Nemesis System allows players to build their own army of Orcs to help them defeat Sauron. Each Orc that you recruit for your army has its own strengths and weaknesses, so you will definitely be able to plan ahead.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War was soft-launched in several countries back in July, and those who pre-register for the game will receive a playable Shelob character on Android, or a playable Ratbag and Orc starter army on iOS.

Rather play the proper PC game thanx, mobile games are so terrible.

You just gotta know which mobile games to play, there are a bunch of great mobile games TBH. Virtual controls are the only drawback but they have gotten a lot better than they use to be and continue to do so.

Mobile gaming is the future. Look around, how many people would build dedicated gaming PC, buy the consoles to play the games. While I would, most people around me don't, I also don't know what they are playing. Look pretty hardcore to me.

I have a dedicated gaming pc but I do play a lot of mobile games as well. Mobile gaming is the future though, especially with the improvements in AR and VR. Razer even bought nextbit so they could make a gaming centric smartphone, it is my hope that they are the ones to finally get it right and the type of controller they make for it, is one where the phone sits inside of it.

A dedicated gaming phone hopes they do it well. Nintendo has missed the boat.
