Middle-earth: Shadow of War’s trailer shows just how talkative orcs can be


A new trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War just had its debut at Microsoft’s E3 show. It detailed the improved Nemesis System, which seemingly makes orcs much more talkative than in the first game.  

Keep an eye on our upcoming PC games list for more future hits. 

In the trailer, Talion recruits a new class: a Warmonger Tank. This one’s called Bruce and he doesn’t know how to shut up. It’s kinda great, actually. He ripped off another orc’s head, for Christ’s sake.

We also get a quick look at the new fort system, which lets you take over entire buildings while flanked by your new pals. You’ll assault these constructions with an entire army at your back. It looks epic.

You can turn enemies to your side even when you’re attacking the fortresses. Everyone’s your pal when you’ve got a magic hand.
