Warner Bros. yesterday released the trailer, shown above, which showcases the Nemesis System and how the appearances and personality of each nemesis differ for each player.

Set in Middle-earth, you’ll play as Talion, a valiant ranger who, moments before his own death, witnesses his family slain the night Sauron and his army return to Mordor. Resurrected by a spirit of vengeance, and powered with Wraith abilities, Talion ventures into Mordor to exact his revenge, whilst learning about the spirit that compels him and the rings of power.

Written by Red Dead Redemption writer, Christian Cantamessa, the title will feature an original story set in the Lord of the Ring’s universe.

With a musical score by Garry Schyman, The Last of Us lead actor Troy Baker will be portraying Talion, Nolan North will play Black Hand, Alastair Duncan will portray Wraith, Laura Bailey will play Ioreth, and Liam O’Brien will portray Gollum.

Developed by Monolith Productions, in collaboration with Middle-earth Enterprises, Peter Jackson and artists from Weta Workshop, who worked on the Academy Award winning film adaptation of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, will also be lending a helping hand with settings, characters and story.

It hits stores on October 7th for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
