Although you play as a ranger named Talion in Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, you aren’t just a regular human. The main protagonist has acquired the abilities of the Nazgul and he uses them to cause disarray among Sauron’s forces. This latest trailer for the game shows some of these powers in effect.
The main Wraith ability is the power to control others. When he makes contact with an Orc, Talion can peer into his mind to see what makes him tick. For example, he can learn what they fear and use that against them. He can also control them completely and make them his servants. The Wraith powers also give Talion some powerful offensive abilities which further make him a menace to the Orcs in Sauron’s army.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor will be released on the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on September 30th. Make sure to check out my hands-off impressions of the game.
