Hello there, ladies and gentlemen. Hope you’re all having a good Tuesday. Let’s talk about a trailer that just came out.
So here we have a trailer for “Middle-earth: Shadow of War”, the sequel to 2014’s “Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor”. To be honest, I never played “Shadow of Mordor”, but I’ve heard from a lot of people on the internet that it’s a really good game. So I will pick it up and play it at some point. But until then, here’s an explanation of the plot from “Shadow of Mordor” as I understand it. The game follows a ranger named Talion (Troy Baker) who dies and then gets resurrected by a Wraith, and then he goes off to murder a bunch of orcs or some shit. Again, I never played the game, so I don’t know the entire plot… just that first bit with Mr. Ranger-man dying and coming back to life. Anyhow, now we have a trailer for the sequel. And apparently there will be an epic fucking war. It’s hard to say what it will be about exactly, but I kind of like that. And sure, a pre-rendered CG trailer doesn’t exactly give us an image of what the game will be like, but it still looks awesome. Also, it does something that you don’t see in too many video game trailers… it gives us a release date for a gameplay reveal. Most game trailers go like “Here’s a CG trailer, get excited, you shits!” and then expects us to be patient and then also get surprised when some gameplay gets revealed. But the “Shadow of War” gameplay reveal is set for March of this year, so that’s cool. So I am actually kind of excited about this. “Middle-earth: Shadow of War” is set to be released on August 25th 2017.
What are your thoughts? Are you excited about “Shadow of War”? And what are your thoughts (if you played it) regarding “Shadow of Mordor”? Leave any and all answers in the comments!
Have a good one and enjoy the trailer!
