Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor stars Last of Us, Uncharted alums

A new story trailer for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor comes alongside an announcement of an expansive voice cast, which includes notable names from The Last of Us, Uncharted, Mass Effect, and more.


Warner Bros released a new story trailer for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor today. If you watch it and think to yourself, "Gee, that sounds like Joel from The Last of Us and Booker from BioShock Infinite," then you have quite the ear for voices. Alongside the trailer comes an announcement of the voice cast, with Troy Baker in the lead as Talion.

As a matter of fact, the cast list reads like a who's-who of voice talent from recent games. Alongside Baker, it will star Nolan North (Uncharted) as Black Hand, Alastair Duncan (Mass Effect) as Wraith, Laura Bailey (Halo 4) as Ioreth, and Liam O'Brien (Infamous: Second Son, GTA5) as Gollum. The story was written by Christian Cantamessa of Red Dead Redemption, and music is being composed by Garry Schyman, the composer behind BioShock Infinite.

Shadow of Mordor is due on October 7, and WB recently announced pre-order bonuses. Check out the new trailer.
