    Squeal to Shadow of Mordor has been announced. The trailer looks awesome!

    Game engine specs state no two games will be the same. Players will now have followers. Not much beyond that.

    Looks sensational. I'm 24% of the way through Shadow Of Mordor and am just starting to ride graugs in combat. Looks like you don't kill Sauron in this one then, if he's returning in Shadow Of War.

    Fave character so far is Ratbag, but I get the feeling he's going to become a nasty-ass piece of tactical adversity.

    The Graugs were nice, but too difficult in massive fights. Easier way it to dismount and let them battle it out.

    Ratbag was funny, but he's not as tactical as they played him to be.

    Will say when you get the mind control it gets interesting. You'll enjoy the coast too.

    It's strange that I've ridden a couple graugs when the 'mount' icon pops-up, but in the actual mission to learn how to ride one, the icon doesn't pop-up and I keep getting killed.

    Yep, looking forward to the 2nd map which looks like it features lushly-detailed vegetation.

    Looks graphically awesome, but looks like it contains some of the tedious banalities of Shadow.

    Players don't need to have their rhythm interrupted by cut-ins of taunting, etc.

    I'm 54% of the way through SoM, stymied by a glitch in The Power Of The Wraith. It loaded the first two times, where I became frustrated that the 'dominate'-icon didn't appear in the slaver-chief battle. Now the quest won't load.

    It also looks like I dominated war-chiefs that weren't supposed to be dominated yet.. ??! I have a handful of badasses walking around the map, not helping me.

    Maybe I'm spoiled by Oblivion and Skyrim.

    Dominated Orcs only help if they are in the area and you order them to help. Else they continue to act just normal to the other orcs, but ignore you.

    Odd on the slaver quest.

    You PC or console?

    I don't know. It looks great but I have a feeling it will be a re-skin of the same game. Kind of like how FarCry Primal was basically and overpriced mod to FarCry 4.

    Console.... I solved it earlier today though. I guess I had to do some adventuring first. I was going straight from the tower into the quest.

    Thanks for the info. What threw me off was the phenomenon of 'lesser' orcs automatically helping me without a command.
