Essentially, Shadow of Mordor now includes a new option called Nemesis Forge, which will select the highest ranking enemy and ally to export to the sequel. Players find a more personal and expansive world full of heroes and villains, iconic locations and more.
Warner Bros. announced that they'll be holding a Middle-earth: Shadow of War panel at San Diego Comic Con this year, and that meant they unveiled more of the game's voice cast.

The move is being seen as part of the Trump administrations effort to prevent North Korea from obtaining nuclear weapons and missiles.
According to the announcement trailer released to celebrate the update, the Nemesis Forge functions somewhat like Dragon Age Keep; it scans a gamer's Shadow of Mordor save file and converts it into data Shadow of War can use, but that's a gross oversimplification.
And if you haven't played the game yet, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is now up to 80% off on Steam, the Xbox Marketplace, and the PlayStation Store. If you want to keep playing after the free play days, Shadow of War Game of the Year Edition is now up for grabs for only $4 as part of Microsoft's Ultimate Game Sale. A promotion to purchase the game for 80% off is also running on those platforms and PlayStation 4.
While this is definitely a solid bit of fan service for those who played Shadow of Mordor and are looking forward to the sequel, it's now unclear at the moment if the Nemesis Forge update will support the ability to transfer a character cross-platform - that is, from PlayStation 4 to Xbox One, for example. Will you be importing your Shadow of Mordor characters into Shadow of War?
