The Middle-earth: Shadow of War promotional cycle continues today with yet another trailer. This one shows off the Marauder tribe, a group of Orcs that are loyal to the Dark Lord. They also like to party, that is after they are done pillaging for the day.

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

A faction of Orcs who specialize in pillaging and feasting on whatever they conquer, leaving only splinters and bones behind. 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. For the Marauder tribe, battles are just a prelude to the real action—toasting the Dark Lord’s power over the sweet taste of grog.

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.
