Learn More About Middle-earth: Shadow of War from a Charming Orc

With Middle-earth: Shadow of War set to release next week (we should have a review up soon), Warner Bros. are putting together the final pieces of their exhausting marketing plan for the game.  The latest Shadow of War trailer goes over a lot of the open-world action game’s features, and is narrated by a “charming yet deadly” Orc named Bruz the Chopper. It’s a rather funny video, while still managing to go over a lot of helpful information.

Here’s how Warner Bros. describes the new video:

Starring the charming yet deadly Orc, Bruz the Chopper, who gives viewers a comprehensive overview on everything you need to know about Middle-earth: Shadow of War, in preparation for the game’s launch on October 10. From a recap on the original story and the iconic characters, to the expansive open world and all of the new features, Bruz has it covered in the Middle-earth: Shadow of War 101 Trailer. The charismatic Olog-hai also helps fans and newcomers with an introduction to the innovative Nemesis System, which adds an entirely new dimension to the game through the introduction of Orc Followers and Nemesis Fortresses, allowing players to create new personal stories of loyalty, betrayal and revenge.

For more on Middle-earth: Shadow of War, check out PlayStation LifeStyle’s E3 2017 preview. Here’s a snippet 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.
