We don’t expect to see anything new about Microsoft’s Project Scorpio until E3 this year, however, before that time we have heard about the first launch title for the next-generation console, which was confirmed as Middle Earth: Shadow of War earlier today.

It was leaked over the weekend, so we aren’t sure if Microsoft meant to reveal the news this week, but they have.

Microsoft said more about it with the following statement:

“As an Xbox Play Anywhere title, if you purchase a digital version of Middle-earth: Shadow of War from either the Xbox Store or Windows Store, you will automatically have access to the game on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC at launch – and for Project Scorpio at its launch this holiday season – at no additional cost.”

But that’s about the sum of what we know right now.

We do also know that the Xbox One version of the game will be available ahead of the launch of the Project Scorpio on August 22nd, 2017, but as it is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, it will be available on any Windows 10 machine or on the Project Scorpio at no extra cost.

Check out the trailer below for a quick look at Middle Earth: Shadow of War.
