Shadow of Mordor trailer shows Talion’s softer side—just kidding, he kills everyone

Posted on June 5, 2014 AT 10:35am

A new CG trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor offers a look at how unhappy anti-hero Talion is with orcs and goblins and such.

The trailer, while unfortunately CG and not at all indicative of gameplay or in-game graphics, does convey the level of brutality and cold-blooded methodology that players, as the ranger Talion and equipped with his Wraith-like powers, will employ. Think lots of climbing and sneaking around, getting behind Mordor’s monsters, and then snapping their necks or plunging a sword through them. Messy stuff, I’m made to understand.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor launches on Windows PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 October 7.
