If there was one criticism that you could level at Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, it was that its setting was incredibly drab and boring. Okay, so when you think of Mordor you think of volcanos and ashlands and a lot of grey rock, but a few creative risks would have been appreciated.

Fortunately, the game's sequel, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, looks way more environmentally interesting. The title's latest trailer gives us a brief look at its open world, showcasing a load of varied locations. That said, we're still not overly impressed by the game's graphics - it all just looks a bit rough doesn't it? Hopefully the visuals will be polished up before its August release.
