For a game that needed to be delayed until October 10th, there sure is a lot of Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War to go around here and I have a feeling there will be a lot more given its presence at E3 this year. If I had to guess it was less with Monolith Productions needing more time to polish or whatever and more to get the buzz going and the marketing campaigns to a high. Either way, there is a lot of Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War out there to take in with more on the way and here we go today with more on the story with an official story trailer for the game. As if we didn't already know enough of it all based on the first title and the bits we've been given already…
Okay, well some of you out there may not be in the full know just yet so here we go with a bit more on Shadow Of War. Talion and Celebrimbor have a new ring out there and they are gearing up and army to try and bring an end to Sauron in an epic war. Something that seems to be doomed to fail quite a bit as all of the events here take place between The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings, but they still need to try. Also try to make things a little more balanced for the epic fight that comes down the line that we all know about hopefully. Either way, it looks like it is going to make one epic battle in Shadow Of War as long as you can use the Nemesis System to your advantage and raise the army you are set out to do. The whole point of the game and all.
Of course there is a bit of gameplay mixed in here in terms of pre-rendered scenes from Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War's engine, but this is all about why we are fighting and playing the game and not how we do it all. I am sure that we'll get a metric butt load of all of those details out of E3 here soon, so for now just sit back, relax, and enjoy the latest story trailer for Shadow Of War and then get ready for the massive information dump here soon. If anything at least in the coming months or so. October is not too far off at this point.

Does the story here for Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War got you all amped up to play or will it be more of the gameplay that will suck you in at the end of the day? Do you think all of this is truly doomed to fail given the placement of the story or will there be liberties taken as none of this is truly set to be "canon?" Does all of that really matter as long as you can get a kick ass army together to bring down all of the viewed enemy forces? Let us know down in the comments and then discuss.
