Shadow Of War Mystic Tribe Trailer

We hope you like lots of flickering cuts and the disorientation they bring because the Mystic Tribe trailer above has it in spades. Up close panning with odd angles and disconcerting shapes aplenty to convey the tribe's mystical, scary themes. It's very heavy handed but at least it's not pimp orcs. Middle Earth Shadow Of…

Shadow Of War Campaign That Never Forgets Interactive Traile…

Unfortunately we couldn't embed the interactive version but you can go to the Shadow Of War official site to take a gander at that one. Basically, you get to watch a decently well shot bit of live action footage where Talion and his Orcs lay siege to a fortress and have a bit of a…

Shadow Of War TV Spots Emerge

Middle Earth: Shadow Of War's trailers so far have ranged from interesting to cringe-worthy. But those are just on the internet right? It's okay to have a laugh with your property when you're just showing things off to fans. We love a good joke as much as the next guy and as much as the…

Middle Earth Shadow Of War Dark Tribe Trailer

Finally! A tribe trailer for Middle Earth: Shadow Of War that we can get behind! We've told you all before we love a good game of knifey-throaty and it looks like the Dark Tribe orcs also understand this pleasure. Though the bar for being likable has been set rather low by the other tribes so…

Shadow Of War Orc Tales Trailer

Turns out Orcs aren't terrible at telling stories in the Middle Earth: Shadow Of War universe. Their stories are all about how rubbish it is to be an Orc and how great it is to be branded by a crazed, elf-ghost possessed madman sneaking around Mordor. The video also highlights some of the new events…

Shadow Of War Marauder Tribe Trailer

I wanted something funny to say about this. Maybe to take the sting out of the microtransactions in a full priced game, maybe just to be snarky. But the top YouTube comment actually beat me to it so I'll leave it up to YouTube user TheBatPanda: Orc pimps... Yeah, I cut out the rest of…

Middle-earth Shadow Of War NEW Monsters Trailer

Tolkein's Middle-earth is a land with plenty of ecological variety. The first Shadow Of game didn't do a great job of highlighting that by only having a handful of creatures but Shadow Of War looks to be emphasising the worst monster of all, microtransactions. No, we don't regret it, the dig is well deserved. Seriously…

Middle Earth Shadow Of War Terror Tribe Trailer

We were tempted to try out a clickbait-y title with this one, something like “Shadow Of War is Terrible” but we were advised it'd make a baby Uruk-hai cry and so was best avoided. What's not best avoided is the above trailer introducing the new Terror Tribe – one of the new features of Middle…
