About a week ago, Monolith and Warner Bros. Interactive revealed one of several different orc sects within the forthcoming action-adventure title Middle-earth: Shadow of War by releasing an official trailer for the Terror Tribe. Now the developer and publisher have decided to give fans of the game a glimpse of another group of orc baddies to be dealt with by introducing players to the faction known as the Machine Tribe.
As seen below in the trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War, the Machine Tribe consists of a rather large guild of orcs that work and toil to create various engines of destruction that Sauron plans to use to conquer the realm. The outfit relies heavily on the use of Mordor’s fire and magma to forge swords, maces, axes, hammers, as well as bombs and flamethrowers to ensure the Dark Lord will control all of Middle-earth by fiery force.
Of course, while the aforementioned Terror and Machine Tribes will be formidable foes to face within Middle-earth: Shadow of War, the co-lead characters Talion and Celebrimbor will have plenty of other antagonists to fight as well. For instance, Monolith and Warner Bros. Interactive recently reminded fans of all the wild creatures that can be encountered throughout Middle-earth by putting out a trailer highlighting the world’s monsters, including the legendary Balrog.
Considering the latest piece of footage for Middle-earth: Shadow of War and all of the assets released for the game so far, it looks as if Monolith is doing its best to create an even more refined experience than Shadow of Mordor, while also adding boatloads of enemies to encounter. Of course, should one manage to blaze through all of the offerings of the action-adventure title’s core campaign soon after it’s launch, the developer has already planned an end game mode called “Shadow Wars” and the release even has an online multiplayer component named Conquest.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War is set to release on October 10, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
