Continuing the spotlight on the various orc factions that now litter the landscape of Mordor there’s a new trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War, spotlighting the Dark tribe, a group of Orcs who utilise stealth and assassination to dominate Mordor on behalf of the Lord of Mordor, whom they have a fanatical reverence for. In Shadow of War, Orcs now belong to tribes, which extend their influence stemming from the Overlords ruling the mighty fortresses throughout the open world, providing a rich ecosystem of missions, exploration and a dynamic Orc society with diverse Orc cultures, all brought to life through the expanded Nemesis System. Adept at ambushes, double-crosses and battlefield trickery, the Dark tribe wields power beyond what their numbers would suggest, favouring treachery and betrayal to get the job done.
This tribe looks absolutely fascinating, in my opinion easily the most interesting orc faction revealed so far. From their designs to their battle tactics the Dark Tribe looks like so much fun and I can’t wait to bring them to my side as I bring down Mordor from the inside. The question I have for all of you now is which tribe has tickled your fancies, the Dark Tribe, the Marauder Tribe, or the Feral tribe? Let me know in the comments below.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available for Xbox One X, Xbox One, Windows 10 PC (Windows Store and Steam), PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro beginning 10th October 2017.
