Middle Earth: Shadow of War Open World Trailer

The latest trailer for Middle Earth: Shadow of war has been released, focusing on a large open world map and that spans from Seregost to Gorgoroth and perhaps farther. 
The game will build upon the systems that were introduced in Shadow of Mordor, bringing the game’s iconic nemesis system to create unique stories for each player as Talion fights for control of Mordor to overthrow Sauron. 
Right now the game is intended to have two “nemesis expansions” and two large story/narrative expansions, with this DLC coming free with the game’s Gold Edition.
Shadow of War will also launch with PS4 Pro support and Xbox One Scorpio support while at the same time dropping the PS3 and Xbox 360 support that the original had. This should allow the developers to easily create larger maps and deliver more advanced visuals than were present in Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, which is something that is clearly visible in the trailer below.

GPU wise the GPU is listed as requiring an HD 7950 or a GTX 670 as a minimum,  with the game recommending a GTX 970 or 1060 for Nvidia users or an R9 290X or an RX 480 for AMD users.
