Seems like everything gets a trailer these days. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has interesting features – the main man is a ghost for one – but its weapons and runes is not one of them. But it gets its own gameplay trailer nevertheless.
Basically, the hero, Talion, has a sword, a dagger and a bow (wow, haven’t seen that before!). If he kills orc bosses the right way, he gets a rune that gives his weapons special powers like flaming arrows (another new idea!). That’s it. I explained it here in two sentences but if you prefer, you can spend 2 minutes watching the trailer.
Rest of the trailer is similar to Assassin’s Creed complete with leap of faith – if you’re a gamer and you’re alive, you know what I’m talking about. It’ll be on Windows, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. And you’ll have to wait until October 7, 2014 to add this to your LOTR collection.
