The trailer spotlights the many monsters you will encounter, and this includes the Balrog Tar Goroth, fire-breathing drakes, ferocious graugs and caragors, spiders, Ghûls and Carnán, and the mysterious spirit of nature who can take the form of vicious creatures herself.
Is the hype setting in for anyone else? Last week we got a preview of the Terror Tribe as well as more information on the Nemesis Forge and this week we got a peek at the Balrog. It seems we’re closer to October (and Q4 in general) than I had realized.
