Monolith releases a free demo for Middle Earth: Shadow of War

Warner Brothers and Monolith Productions have released a free demo from Middle Earth: Shadow of War, which is now available on Windows PCs through Steam and on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles on their respective online services. 

The demo will include the region of Num and all of its quests and allows gamers to transfer their progress to the full game if purchased. Right now, Shadow of War is available for £15.30 on Steam, which is a 66% discount on the game's £44.99 standard price. The demo will include several hours of free gameplay. 

In the recent past, microtransactions were also removed from the game, rebalancing the game to make the acquisition of powerful orc easier and improve the game for normal players. These changes counter many of the game's shortcomings, especially in the final act of the title. 

     About the Demo

Go deep into the heart of Mordor to conquer the forested region of Nurn. Build an army of unique Orc Followers and then lead them in a massive fortress assault to take down its Overlord and replace him with a loyal Follower of your own. Your new Overlord will follow you into the full game once you purchase.

The entire region of Nurn and its quests are unlocked in this demo.
