A lot of times, we are to put up to face with a long annoying wait between the first official announcement of an upcoming new game and the eventual release of its system specifications. And all other times, they show up on us like cops on a drug bust—but in a good way, with welcome and useful information rather than shotguns and MP5’s. Now for the case of Middle Earth: Shadow of War, it’s definitely the latter, as just a mere day after its official confirmation (which itself came not too long after it was leaked), the numbers have turned up on Steam.

The current Steam listing as you can see, doesn’t have a lot more to say about the LoTR based RPG, although the way in which it promises to expand and upgrade on the successful Nemesis system established in the very good Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is definitely interesting, to say the least.

Go behind enemy lines to forge your army, conquer Fortresses and dominate Mordor from within. Experience how the award-winning Nemesis System creates unique personal stories with every enemy and follower, and confront the full power of the Dark Lord Sauron and his Ringwraiths in this epic new story of Middle-earth, In Middle-earth: Shadow of War, nothing will be forgotten.

Middle Earth: Shadow of War is set to roll out to us commoners on August 25, and will be setting you back the standard $60/£45/€60. A proper “gameplay reveal” is set for March 8.
