Shadow of Mordor story trailer

Ever wanted to command your own army of possessed orcs? You're in luck...

The latest trailer for the brilliantly grizzly Lord of the Rings-inspired Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor shows off some of Talion's less subtle powers.

Until now, the game had the appearance of a Tolkein-based Assassin's Creed - creeping around in shadows, stabbing bad guys with swords. Besides his combat skills, Talion looks to have the rather useful ability of possessing his foe, from lowly orks to towering trolls.

You'll have to wait until 7 October before you can start messing with Middle-Earth minds, so the trailer will have to suffice for now.
