Lord of the Rings fans, here is something for you today. Warner Bros has launched a free-to-play weekend for Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Furthermore, during this free weekend period the publisher is offering the game with a 50% discount.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War is an open world action RPG that continues the original narrative of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Players will be engrossed in a richer, more personal and expansive world full of new heroes and villains, new locations, original enemy types, more personalities and a new cast of characters with untold stories.
The game comes with a new and improved melee, stealth and ranged combat, expanded skills and the new Ring of Power. Players will encounter new and familiar allies in their quest, including Eltariel, the elite Nazgûl hunter; Baranor, the Captain of Minas Ithil; Carnán, the mysterious spirit of nature and iconic characters such as Shelob and Gollum. Alongside these allies they will face an incredible diversity of deadly foes, including Orcs, Olog-hai, monstrous beasts, the ancient Balrog Tar Goroth, fire breathing drakes, the Nazgûl and ultimately the Dark Lord, Sauron himself.
