A story trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has premiered during Comic Con.

The trailer, shown above, reveals new story details for the game, including the identity of the mysterious Wraith bound to protagonist Talion, as well as his connection to the Rings of Power and the Dark Lord, Sauron.

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 co-writer, Christian Cantamessa, it will feature The Last of Us actor Troy Baker as Talion, Nolan North as Black Hand, Alastair Duncan as Wraith, Laura Bailey as Ioreth, and Liam O’Brien as Gollum.

It is developed by Monolith Productions in collaboration with Middle-earth Enterprises, Peter Jackson and artists from Weta Workshop.

It will be available on October 3rd for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
