The developers try to immerse us in a personal battle between the protagonists of the Shadow of War and Sauron himself.

Shadow of Mordor was a truly enjoyable experience of meddling in the affairs of your unfriendly Mordorian neighbors, the Orcs. Shadow of War promises a much more expanded system and a full-out war between the baddies that you control with your Ring and the baddies that the other guy wants to control without his Ring.

Being a Tolkien fan I still can’t put a finger on how I feel about the series’ attitude towards the original contents and the numerous additions to the Middle-Earth mythos. I like killing orcs, though. And having one’s own army to smash those glum smiles I imagine the Nazgul have under those masks seems pretty fun. Below you will find the story trailer for the Middle-Earth: Shadow of War for everyone to enjoy.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War will be available on October 10, 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
