These Orcs jive with Tolkein’s depiction of them.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, Warner Bros. and Monolith’s follow up to their 2014 hit action adventure game Shadow of Mordor, launches in less than a month- and ahead of the launch, we get yet another new trailer for the game, which you can see for yourself below.
This new trailer introduces us to the Feral Tribe of Orcs. They’re actually the most Tolkien-lore friendly additions to the game we have seen in a while- they’re just ferocious hunters and good at taming animals, both of which jive well with the depiction of orcs in Tolkien’s stories (and their more faithful adaptations).
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War launches on October 10 (after having been delayed from its earlier August launch) for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will be hugely optimized for the Xbox One X as well (and is in fact one of the headlining titles for Microsoft’s upcoming superpowered console).
