Monolith and Warner Bros. have opted for a flashy, cinematic trailer to commemorate Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor’s E3 showing. In the new video, we get a narrative look at what happens when Talion dominates an underling to intimidate his evil superior.

This trailer nicely compliments the one we shared in May, featuring a heavy amount of gameplay. Whereas that trailer set Talion on his quest (and was accompanied by an in-depth, hands-on preview), this one shows him executing his mission.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be out on October 7 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. For more, check out a rundown of the impressive cast and our coverage hub from the December 2013 issue.
