There seems to be a somewhat mixed response to this so far 🤔 http://www.ign.com/...amescom-2017-trailer

I won't play it [In reply to] Can't Post

... but I'm rather curious how the backgrounds of all these new characters are explained and why Shelob can transform herself in a lady (seems that she isn't necessarily an antagonist in this game). Reminds me a bit of the fact that depth psychology sees spiders as a symbol for the dark side of femininity (see also this discussion: http://lotrplaza.com/archives/index.php?Archive=First%20Age&TID=180448)

Shelob [In reply to] Can't Post

I think the game designers wanted to do something new and different with Shelob that explores her demonic nature and makes her more than just a monstrous antagonist. Her mother Ungoliant would have probably been capable of such a transformation, so while this will undoubtedly be controversial with many Tolkien scholars and fans, it isn't coming completely out of left field.

Past battles fought leave scars remembered and bonds that endure through death. In #ShadowOfWar, each Orc has a personal relationship to you. Nothing will be forgotten.

Middle-earth: Shadow Of War’s Latest Trailer Spotlights The Dark Tribe [In reply to] Can't Post

Posted at Bleeding Cool:


Quote
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today released another new trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War, spotlighting the Dark tribe, a group of Orcs who utilize stealth and assassination to dominate Mordor on behalf of the Lord of Mordor, whom they have a fanatical reverence for. In Shadow of War, Orcs now belong to tribes, which extend their influence stemming from the Overlords ruling the mighty fortresses throughout the open world, providing a rich ecosystem of missions, exploration and a dynamic Orc society with diverse Orc cultures, all brought to life through the expanded Nemesis System. Adept at ambushes, double-crosses and battlefield trickery, the Dark tribe wields power beyond what their numbers would suggest, favoring treachery and betrayal to get the job done.
