    This week on MonolithLive , we're going to continue with what we're making a tradition.

    This Friday we'll once again be joined by VP of Creative, Michael de Plater for a quick chat. He's quite enjoyed answering your questions live, so he's decided to make Twitch a regular part of his Friday. But, remember – his time is limited! Get there early. (Don’t say we didn’t warn you.)

    After that, we'll be shouting out the fastest among you live on Twitch – and, we'll kick-off our next challenge. Last time, you took up the mantle of the Test of Speed , but this time around you're going to be removing our ability to use Talion's sword, dagger, or bow. Think we're up for it?

    See you this Friday. Same Monolith time, same Monolith place: 2 PM Pacific/ 5 PM…

    Friends, Rangers, and Uruk sympathizers,

    The time has finally arrived. The second-coming of the award-winning Nemesis System is well on its way - and gameplay has officially been revealed!

    But, we've known you for a while. We're sure you're going to want some more. That's why this upcoming Friday at 2 PM Pacific, we're going to host a Developer's Cut stream live on our Twitch Channel. There, you'll get an up-close and personal look at the Gameplay Reveal alongside our VP of Creative here at Monolith Productions, Michael de Plater. (You can thank us in Chat.)

    Join us! We'll have plenty to discuss – and we're sure you might have a couple extra questions of your own.

    See you Friday.
