Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has debuted a new Middle-earth Shadow of War trailer, this time focusing on one of the new Orc factions known as the Warmonger Tribe.

As the name implies, this group of Orcs aren’t the friendliest bunch, and thrive on inflicting pain and carnage wherever they go. From the look of things, the Warmonger Tribe are among the deadliest Orcs you’ll encounter, packing heavy armor and wielding some devastating weaponry in battle.

Their fury is your doom. None shall escape the reach of the Warmonger tribe,” the blurb reads. Check out the new Shadow of War trailer below.

Middle-earth Shadow of War is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on October 10, 2017. 

The follow-up to the critically acclaimed Middle-earth Shadow of Mordor sees protagonist Talion attempting to overthrow the Dark Lord Sauron, having forged a new Ring of Power. The game expands upon the Nemesis system seen its predecessor, allowing Talion to command entire armies to conquer enemy strongholds.

Developer Monolith has come under heavy criticism recently due to its stance on the game’s controversial loot system. 

Shadow of War will also include a fairly substantial endgame mode, with gamers able to unlock the true ending by taking on extra missions following the completion of the main campaign. 

The Middle-earth Shadow of War storyline takes place during the 60 year gap between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and takes much inspiration from Peter Jackson’s epic fantasy movie franchise based on the J.R.R. Tolkien novels.
