Middle-earth: Shadow of War Drops New Trailer and Xbox One S Bundle

By Mark Delaney, 3 months ago
Microsoft's presentation at Gamescom wasn't the media spectacle it was at E3 a few months ago, but the show did provide a chance to catch up with WB and Monolith's October sequel, Middle-earth: Shadow of War. A new trailer was shown off in addition to a surprise console bundle that will package the game with an Xbox One S and several other bonuses.

First let's meet the "Monsters of Mordor".


As for the bundle, there are two versions but neither is available totally worldwide. Offered in sizes of 500GB or 1TB, the bundles include a white Xbox One S, one wireless controller, a copy of Shadow of War, two in-game items (the Legendary Champions War Party and the Epic Sword of Dominion), a month of free Xbox Game Pass, and 14 days of free Xbox Live Gold.

The 500GB edition ($280) is available everywhere except the US, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, China, and Japan. Meanwhile the larger 1TB edition ($350) will be in stores all over except for Japan and China.

Do these bundles entice you to upgrade your console or are you going bigger with the Xbox One X?
