A brand new trailer or Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor has been released.

The new trailer, released today by Warner Bros. and Monolith Productions, details how players can upgrade their abilities throughout the game.

Titled “Weapons and Runes”, the trailer is available for viewing above.

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 leaning about the spirit that compels him and the rings of power.

It is being developed by Monolith, developers of the F.E.A.R and Condemned series, in collaboration with Middle Earth Enterprises.

Peter Jackson and artists from Weta Workshop, who worked on the film adaptation of the Academy Award winning Lord of the Rings trilogy, are also lending a helping hand with settings, characters and story.

The game hits store on 7th October for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
