Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is the newest entry in the series of games based on The Lord of the Rings universe. We've seen a 16-minute preview of the game as it stands so far, and even then there's plenty new to talk about. Today we get a look at Shadow of War' s new predator skills.
The new gameplay video seen below shows off these new skills, which are best employed to help kill enemies silently. These new abilities will come in handy when sneaking up and killing Uruk-hai to ultimately reach your goal.

The abilities will expand upon the experience introduced in the first game, Shadow of Mordor. Monolith describes the game as such:
"In Middle-earth: Shadow of War, players wield a new Ring of Power and confront the deadliest of enemies, including Sauron and his Nazgul, in a monumental battle for Middle-earth. The open-world action-adventure game is brought to life through the expansion of the award-winning Nemesis System. The robust personalization from the first game is now applied to the entire world where the environments and characters are all shaped by player actions and decisions, creating a personal world unique to every gameplay experience."
In Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, players control Talion once again as this time, he fights against the Nazgul. We're even told that there will be detailed boss fights against them.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War will launch this August for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
