    Shadow of War developer who died of cancer immortalised as an in-game orc slayer

    A Shadow of War developer who died of cancer has been immortalised as an orc slayer in the game.

If you have the £3.99 DLC, Forthog will on occasion appear to one-hit kill whichever enemy the player character is up against. Think the Mysterious Stranger from the Fallout series.
