Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Weapons & Runes Trailer Revealed

With E3 getting closer, WB Games are showing more of Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment posted a new trailer today on the WB Games YouTube channel, revealing some of the weapons and upgrades that will be available in the game.

The trailer, titled “Weapons and Runes” runs just over two minutes in length and gives a brief glimpse into the weapon upgrade system. Players will have to hunt enemies to collect Runes, which augment weapons by adding special abilities, such as flaming arrows to a bow as the video demonstrates.

More of the game will likely be seen next month as it is surely to have a strong presence at E3. Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is shaping up to be one of the most promising games based on movie license.

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is an upcoming action game being developed by Monolith Productions. The game will be set in between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Players will control a ranger named Talion who is hunting the orcs of Mordor. The game was announced in a gameplay reveal in January.
