Shadow of Mordor trailer wants you to fear the Immortal Gravewalker

Warner Bros has released a new Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor trailer.

Although it doesn't feature any gameplay, the cinematic provides a good overview of the game's story, main character - Immortal Gravewalker - and a tease of his ability to take control of enemies and make them do his bidding.

Middle-earth: Shadow Of Mordor is a new story set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings. It puts players in control of Talion, a "valiant ranger" whose family is killed in front of him the night Sauron and his army return to Mordor.

After he is killed, Talion is resurrected by a spirit of vengeance and, given Wraith abilities, heads into Mordor to enact revenge against those who killed him and his family.

The game also features a 'Nemesis System', in which enemy relationships and characteristics are shaped by the actions and decisions the player makes throughout the game. When the player re-encounters certain enemies, they will remember what the player did before and react accordingly.

The game will be released on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on October 7.
