Today, Warner Brothers unveiled a new trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War. The latest video for the upcoming title shows off a group of Orcs called the Machine tribe which, as you can imagine, uses technology for personal gain.

According to the publisher, the Machine tribe is one of the many Orcs factions that are convinced that Mordor is on the brink of a new age that will rely heavily on technological advancements and industrialization. Additionally, Warner Bros confirmed that all Orcs are aligned with a faction.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is an action RPG currently developed by Monolith Productions for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Shadow of War is a sequel to the 2014 title, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Set in-between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings players control Talion who is accompanied on his journey by elf lord Celebrimbor. Together the pair ventures across Mordor as they search for a Ring of Power to help them assemble an army to defeat Sauron.
