This new Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor trailer might only excite select and hardcore Tolkien fans. You know, the ones who’ve paged through The Silmarillion a few dozen times.
Here’s the thing, this trailer could be potentially spoilery. The character revealed is one that will absolutely surprise even dedicated Tolkien fans. It might not affect the everyday reader, but if you’ve considered going in blind, maybe don’t watch the video.
You want gameplay? Well, me too. This video comes from E3, and it’s the most recent actual gameplay clip posted to Shadow of Mordor‘s official YouTube channel.
Isn’t that much better than a pre-rendered story trailer? Right?
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor will hit the PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on Sept. 30. We’ll have more on the title, both in-game and otherwise, as it comes.
