Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is the eagerly-anticipated follow-up to Monolith's Shadow of Mordor, which we utterly loved, and it's due out tomorrow, October 10. But Warner Bros has made the release date and time a little confusing, indeed, what time does Shadow of War actually come out over the world on Steam? We've got a list of release times for all regions below.
Here are the all-regions times when Shadow of War unlocks on Steam. We've seen other lists of these around, but they seem to include PST and EST even though they're not in use at the moment. Here are the correct ones:
PT (Pacific Time, US Los Angeles): 10:00
ET (Eastern Time, US New York): 13:00
BST (British Standard Time, UK London): 18:00
CEST (Central European Summer Time, Europe): 19:00
ACT (Australian Central Time): 03:30, October 11 - Note: We have seen reports that it is either coming out earlier in Australia, or later, around 11:00 on October 11. We are trying to confirm the time for Australian territories.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is the latest Tolkien game from Monolith and takes place in the 60+ years gap between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It once again follows cursed ranger Talion and the elf spirit Celebrimbor. this time as they forge a new Ring of Power to take on Sauron and take back Mordor from his dark forces.
Shadow of War has a release date of October 10, unless you live in Australia in which case it's October 11. Probably.
