E3 2014: Middle-ear​th: Shadow of Mordor E3 Trailer Rises From the Grave

Don’t get TOO excited. It’s only a CG trailer, after all. Shadow of Mordor is still looking pretty bad ass, though, regardless of its apparent butchery of Tolkien’s Middle-earth lore.

Warner Bros. would also like to take this opportunity to invite you to create a WBID account (ShadowofMordor.com/register) and use the iOS Palantir companion app. Like a pre-order offer, doing so will unlock access to these special runes at game launch in October:

WBID ­ Orc Hunter Rune

o Talion can overcome Sauron’s captains by increasing terror from his stealth takedowns.

Palantir ­ Gravewalker Rune: After signing into WBID, get the Gravewalker rune when accessing Palantir upon launch

o Talion spreads fear among Sauron’s army when his Captains are defeated.
