Your Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor progress will carry over into Shadow of War

July 06, 2017 1 min read

After months of speculation, Warner Bros. and Monolith confirmed what we already suspected: Key Nemesis figures from the Shadow of Mordor will carry over to the sequel.

There's a newly-added "Nemesis Forge" mode in Shadow of Mordor that will automatically detect both your highest ranked orc foe and your highest ranked orc follower. Then, those will import to Shadow of War when that releases this fall. The video that's embedded above explains how it all works.

This particular feature has been all but confirmed for months. Upon Shadow of War's reveal in March, GamesRadar asked Monolith's creative vice president about save imports and he responded by saying "Oh, I don't remember what we're allowed to say about that." Then, last month, Shadow of Mordor received a mysterious patchthat seemed to do nothing. We asked Warner Bros. representatives about it but received no response. It was clearly being saved for a marketing beat later in the summer.

For anyone who has no nemesis because they never played Shadow of Mordor, now is the perfect time to jump in. The Game of the Year Edition is available on Steam, PS4, and Xbox One for $4 (but probably slightly more expensive if you aren't a subscriber to either PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold). That's an absolute steal, even if the game is three years old.
