Trivia

The idea for the game's Nemesis system first started when the team at Monolith considered themselves experts at artificial intelligence and wanted to continue to push its boundaries. Wanting to allow players to choose and decide their story, as they considered it one of the major pillars in building a sandbox game, and to "leverage the new generation hardware through innovation", the team wanted to create a system that allows non-playable characters to respond to players' action. In order to give the system a good presentation, everyone in the studio was involved in it. See more »

Celebrimbor: It is so fine a gift.
