Middle Earth: Shadow of War, is the epic sequel to the game Shadow of Mordor. It’s an action role-playing game developed by Monolith and published by Warner Bros. The trailer is similar in style to the game, which is set in an ‘open world’ environment and played from a third-person perspective and is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, giving it a distinct look and style.
The live-action cinematic trailer was included heavy VFX such as complex set extensions, CG dragons, orcs and trolls, crowd simulations, FX simulations for atmosphere, fire, smoke and embers, and several fully CG shots.
