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

Every good agent of justice needs a good informant...or a snitch. Meet 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.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
