Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is set to have a much more expanded and in-depth Nemesis System. The original system was unique, as it was completely different for every person who played the game depending on the choices they made. Because of this, it would be feasible to assume that the original game information would need to somehow tie into the sequel, but how?
In a recent interview with GamesRadar Monolith Productions Creative Vice President Michael de Plater was asked if it’s going to be possible transfer save files between the two games.
“Oh… I don’t remember what we’re allowed to say about that,” de Plater said, before leaving to confirm with a Warner Bros. representative. When he came back, his answer was the typical, “We’re not saying anything at this time.”
What does that mean? Well, it’s all speculation at the moment but the fact he didn’t just say No straight away nd actually required confirmation on the matter, seems to show that there may well be something there regarding the original game. It could be just simply that they don’t want to reveal anything until E3, or maybe it is that your original saves or maybe even your character progression can be transferred over
