Middle-earth: Shadow of War’s story trailer shows Shelob the spider in human form

Shadow of War

Over at SDCC today, Warner Bros debuted a new trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War, giving us some more insight into its story. It’s short, but there’s a couple of potential spoilers in there – watch out if you’re scared of spoilers… or spiders, for that matter.

In the trailer we see Shelob the spider in a way we’ve never seen her before: projected as a human woman. The wraith warns Talion that she’s not an ally, but it looks like you’ll be having an uneasy alliance with her anyway.

Don’t be surprised if you have to fight her at some point – Shelob is Sauron’s pet spider, after all.

Set between The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, Shadow of War expands on the Nemesis system features in the previous game, Shadow of Mordor, and promises epic battles on a scale of Helm’s Deep.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is set for release on October 10.
