Warner Bros. and Monolith have released another story trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor during Comic Con, revealing the identity of the mysterious and vengeful Wraith who possesses and inhabits protagonist Talion, awakening the Ranger from death, after he and his family have been slaughtered by orcs.
The Wraith is revealed as Celebrimbor, the greatest Elven Smith of the Second Age, deceived by Sauron into forging the Rings of Power. Following the creation of the rings, Sauron betrayed and murdered Celebrimbor and his family. With both Talion and Celebrimbor look to settle a score under similar circumstances, the two work together to exact revenge upon Sauron.
That means amassing an army of orcs to turn against the Dark Lord, which is where the game's Nemesis System will come into play. To read more about that, hit up our hands-on preview here. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be launching for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC on September 30th in North America and October 2nd in Europe.
