Remember when Middle-earth: Shadow of War developer Monolith played coy when asked about the possibility of save imports from Shadow of Mordor? Now we know why.

Monolith has announced Nemesis Forge, a new feature that’s available now in a free update for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Nemesis Forge lets you import your arch Nemesis, as well as Orc Follower and bring them into the upcoming Shadow of War.

This basically allows the story/struggle you witnessed in the original game to continue in the sequel, itself expanding on the Nemesis System in major ways. Accessible from the main menu, the Nemesis Forge will automatically detect the highest ranking Nemesis in your save file.

To celebrate, Warner Bros. is putting Shadow of Mordor on sale for 80% off across Steam, the Xbox Store, and the PlayStation Store. The sale will remain available until July 10 for Steam, July 17 on Xbox One, and July 19 on PS4.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is out October 10 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
