Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor trailer introduces a dirty Ratbag

Every good agent of justice (or revenge, in this case) needs a good informant to assist in the war against the bad guys. As it turns out, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor frontman Talion has just the man (er... orc) for the job, as the latest trailer for the upcoming Tolkien-based story introduces us to Ratbag.

Ratbag is revealed to be one of the lowliest of the orcs, about to find himself at the end of Talion's blade. However, the two soon come to a mutual agreement. While Ratbag feeds Talion info on the orcs and helps him take out their higher-ranked officers, Ratbag takes advantage of the vacuum to consolidate his own power.

You can check out the makings of this effective partnership in the trailer below. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor arrives on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on October 7.
