Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor has been somewhat of a dark horse this year, hasn't it? The game rode in on minor waves of excitement, and then it was met with overwhelmingly positive critic reviews. Now, it launches today.

As such, Monolith and Warner Bros. have released two brand new trailers for the game. The first is the launch trailer, which you'll see at the head of this post. The second, which lies below, focuses specifically on the (dreaded) season pass for the game.

Here's exactly what the season pass will offer gamers for $25.
