Shadow of War Machine tribe

The Middle-earth: Shadow of War promotional cycle continues today with yet another trailer. This one shows off the Machine tribe, a group of Orcs that use technology to their advantage. Using the mines of Tamon Angren, they’re able to produce some impressive weapons.

Here’s how Warner Bros. describes the Machine tribe:

A faction of Orcs who believe that Mordor is on the cusp of a new age, one of industry and mechanization. Fueled by the mines of Tamon Angren, their smithies and forges turn out much of the Dark Lord’s war materiel, and the black plumes in the sky are a sign that the Machine tribe’s factories are near. In Shadow of War, Orcs now belong to tribes, which extend their influence stemming from the Overlords ruling the mighty fortresses throughout the open world, providing a rich ecosystem of missions, exploration and a dynamic Orc society with diverse Orc cultures, all brought to life through the expanded Nemesis System. The Machine tribe takes a mechanical approach to warfare with their soldiers moving in lockstep. Every member of the tribe sees himself as just a cog in the larger apparatus, one that someday will encompass all of Mordor.

For more on Middle-earth: Shadow of War, check out PlayStation LifeStyle’s E3 2017 preview. Here’s a snipper of what PlayStation LifeStyle Senior Editor Chandler Wood had to say about the game:

Despite my loss, I had a lot of fun with Shadow of War. Part of the engaging gameplay is in dealing with failure, ducking and weaving as the world changes, your enemies growing stronger, that growing feeling of vengeful rage as you watch a simple orc become the one that just won’t leave you alone. Middle-earth: Shadow of War seems to take on everything that made Shadow of Mordor our game of the year in 2014 and crank it up to levels that could very easily make it another game of the year contender in 2017.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is set to release October 10, 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It’ll also support the PlayStation 4 Pro.
