New Middle-earth: Shadow of War Trailer Introduces the Feral Orc Tribe

Warner Bros. and Monolith Productions have shared a new trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War.

Featured above, the new trailer introduces the “Feral Tribe” of orcs from the game world, which are infamous for their acts of savagery.

Here’s a brief rundown on the Feral tribe, via Warner Bros.:

The Feral tribe is a faction of Orcs who revere the fearsome beasts of Mordor, feeding on the strength of these vicious creatures as inspiration for their own acts of savagery. In Shadow of War, Orcs now belong to tribes, which extend their influence stemming from the Overlords ruling the mighty fortresses throughout the open world, providing a rich ecosystem of missions, exploration and a dynamic Orc society with diverse Orc cultures, all brought to life through the expanded Nemesis System. Feral Orcs live among the graugs, caragors, drakes and other monsters when they can, while adorning their clothing and armor with trophies from the beasts they’ve hunted. In battle, the Feral tribe is also infamous for roaring, snarling and rending flesh with a ferocity that rivals any caragor.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is launching across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 10th.

    The more I see,the more I hate it.Just have a completely new IP instead of shitting all over Tolkien’s work.

  • Jack The hype for this game is just slowly deflating over time as they reveal how shit the game is

  • mewnani

    Um… I’m by no means an expert on Lord of the Rings lore but… weren’t orcs mainly constricted to one or two groups? Why have all these differing factions?

    So you can get them in loot boxes! It would be boring to buy loot boxes if there were only a couple groups of orcs after all!

    No elven cities, no buy!

    Maybe they think orcs were a natural occurence on the MIddle Earth instead of corrupted elves.
