A new gameplay demo for the sequel to Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, titled Middle-earth: Shadow of War, was presented at E3 2017. It’s another fun preview of the game, similar to what we’ve seen in previous trailers and gameplay. But one thing stood out, and it alone makes me want the game.
A new character is introduced, an orc named Bruz the Chopper, who sounds an awful lot like Bruce from the 2003 Pixar classic Finding Nemo. The actor who voiced Bruce, Barry Humphries, has only done one video game in his near 60-year career, Kinect Disneyland Adventures, once again voicing his Finding Nemo character. And Humphries is not yet officially listed on the cast. But so far the only actor who is listed is Troy Baker, who returns to voice the main character Talion. Oh, and a semi-related note: Humphries also played the Great Goblin in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

A brand new trailer for the sequel to Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, titled Middle-earth: Shadow of War, has been released.
The trailer is titled “Dominate the Open World,” and, as some of you crafty folks may have deduced, shows off some of the game’s world you’ll explore. But just to make sure everyone remembers this is a Middle-earth game, there’s also some good ol’ orc-slaying to enjoy as well.
Read more about the game and check out the new trailer below.
A couple of years back a new game set in the same world as J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings was released titled Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.
Now a sequel has been announced titled Middle-earth: Shadow of War, and a trailer for the game has been released. A release date has also been revealed, and it’s coming sooner than you might think. You can check out the trailer below, along with more info.
The upcoming Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor from Monolith Productions and WB Games is one of the most anticipated video games being released soon, set in the same world as The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit (set between the two stories, as a matter of fact).
A new live-action short film has been made based on the game, which follow a part-wraith ranger named Talion seeking revenge for the murder of his family. The film sees a group of orcs crossing paths with the game’s protagonist, and includes one of the big features you’ll be able to use in playing: the ability to take control of an enemy and have them do your bidding.
Be sure to continue below to watch the Shadow of Mordor live-action short as well as a trailer. NSFW warning is in effect for some bloody good part-man/part-wraith-on-orc violence.
