Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced that Troy Baker is reprising his role as Talion in Middle-earth: Shadow of War, the upcoming open world action-adventure game. Baker has also taken on extended duties as the game’s Performance Capture Director, where his first-hand experience as an actor is now being utilised with other characters, helping to ensure that each performance fits cohesively within the original narrative in Middle-earth: Shadow of War.

Set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth: Shadow of War is an open-world action RPG that continues the original narrative of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Players will be engrossed in a richer, more personal and expansive world full of epic heroes and villains, iconic locations, original enemy types, more personalities and a new cast of characters with untold stories.
This is great news for fans of the Shadows of Mordor franchise but comes as no big surprise. Though it is fascinating to learn that Baker has been promoted to Performance Capture Director this will likely enhance the depth of the gaming experience in Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available for Xbox One, Project Scorpio, Windows 10 PC (Windows Store and Steam), PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro beginning 10th of October 2017.
