I love trailers.  Whether they’re for movies or games, something about a good trailer gives me the warm fuzzies inside.  With E3 right around the corner, my inbox has been filled with trailers, and I’m a very happy camper…especially for this game:

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) and Monolith Productions today released an all-new trailer, Shadow of Mordor E3 CG Trailer: Gravewalker. The trailer showcases protagonist Talion on his quest for vengeance alongside the immortal Wraith Spirit bound to him by an unbreakable curse. Like Talion, this wraith seeks revenge against Sauron and his evil army.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor delivers a dynamic game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will. The game begins on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate. Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance. Based on the player’s actions with the in-game Nemesis System, every enemy encountered is distinct and can evolve to become a personal archenemy through the course of the game.  As Talion’s personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power and confront the ultimate nemesis.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is currently available for pre-order at www.shadowofmordor.com and will be on sale worldwide on October 7, 2014 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.

We’ll have more coverage of all things E3 over the next couple weeks, so be sure to stay tuned to our E3 2014 Hub for the latest!
