Your pre­cious

EDGE - - HYPE -

As Talion’s moveset ex­pands and the world around him grows larger, so does Shadow Of War build out its RPG cre­den­tials. A much deeper loot sys­tem is promised, with slain char­ac­ters drop­ping pow­er­ful pieces of ar­mour that pro­vide Talion with some of the same traits pre­vi­ously granted to his orc op­po­nents. For ex­am­ple, we’re shown a piece of high-level Ro­hirrim ar­mour that grants im­mu­nity to poi­son. Given that orc bosses typ­i­cally have traits that ac­cen­tu­ate dif­fer­ent kinds of dam­age, build­ing out your ar­moury to counter them is an­other way in which play­ers can pre­pare for the game’s most dif­fi­cult bat­tles. While loot in and of it­self is not a rev­o­lu­tion­ary con­cept, it gains new sig­nif­i­cance in the con­text of the Neme­sis sys­tem.
