I stumbled across this on Reddit over the weekend and quite excited. The way it sounded, it is XBone and PS4 only at launch. But that just could be the only thing that Target could take preorders for with the first game being on Steam. Regardless, I'm sure it will come to PC at some point and I will buy it!

Looks like an August 22nd release date, PC, XBONE, PS4, and maybe Microsoft's Project Scorpio release.

A new Ring? Huge war in Mordor? Huh, I guess they're breaking any pretense of it possibly fitting in with the series proper. I mean, I'm no LotR specialist but seems like they attempted to make the first game like it could fit in the series somewhere. This just seems to throw that idea out the window.

Not that it'll matter, people loved the crap out of the first game and so long as it's fun then, hey, nothing wrong with breaking out of lore and going with some fun "what if" scenarios!

Oh yeah, it is waaaaay non-cannon, but I still had a lot of fun with the first one and got all excited at the end of the first one when the possibility of another ring of power was brought up. It was never really elaborated on as to what the rings of power do, other than make you powerful. So I'm excited for that.

And I mean... if the plan to make a new ring fails then it this game can still leave the status quo close enough to the movies for them to happen...

My suspicion is that you'll spend the game somehow powering up the new ring (maybe re-collecting Celebrimbor or his power somehow), then the new ring will get destroyed in the climax of the game, thus returning the status-quo for when the Lord of the Rings things would pick up.

Apart from that NOT being how you forge a ring I am now super excited for this game!

 

Seems like a good narrative mechanic to lose Celembrimbor.  By the end of that game with all the powerups you were SO incredibly awesome and powerful.  Losing Cel means that you get a soft reset of powers. 

Also I'm fine with tearing the universe apart and playing around in the resulting chaos if it means I get to build orc armies and be Ranger Dude Man again. 

Here's hoping they can actually pull off an excellent game (again) but not have a boring ass shitty ending boss fight.

Frankly this doesn't interest me at all.  It'd just cut into my Madden and Call of Duty time.
