The lights are on
Last week, we learned that the wraith who accompanies Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's hero is none other than Celebrimbor. The elf helped forge the rings of power for Sauron, before being betrayed and tortured. There's clearly no love lost between the two, which is why Celebrimbor is accompanying the ranger Talion on his own quest for revenge. A new gameplay video shows that the wraith isn't just along for the ride.
The wraith (and players) can dive into the minds of his foes, learning their strengths, weaknesses, and other key information. For example, a fearsome-looking opponent may harbor a deep fear of bees, and dropping a hive on him could cause him to flee in terror. Celebrimbor can also possess enemies, forcing them to fight one another on your behalf.

It'd be cool if Brimbo has some ulterior motive for helping Talion and not just helping him for revenge's sake. Gradually building up my excitement for this game.

More like CelembrimBRO amirite?
Cool. So like good ol MGS3 I can turn bee's against foes? That aside,man I can't wait for this game!
Some people don't know what to complain about. "i'm worried about variety". When was the last time you played a game like this, with a Nemesis system. That's your variety, you people are so jaded.
Man this game look great. I can't wait for this game. I really, REALLY hope its good.
This game look great and it is still in development. Great gameplay and a great story.
