Today Monolith Productions showcased aout half a hour of gameplay of its upcoming action RPG Middle-earth: Shadow of War.

The gameplay showcases one of the interesting features of the game. You can send your orcs to infiltrate an enemy stronghold, but it won’t be peaceful. They will have to conquer the trust of the hosts by fighting a duel in an orc pit.

The interesting element is that you won’t be involved besides having to reach a certain location and choosing the candidate. It’ll be a fight completely governed by the AI, and your orc will either die or win and successfully infiltrate the fort.

Following a successful infiltration, our orcs will be able to betray their new masters in our favor when the time to take the fort comes.

Recently, Monolith introduced four of the orc tribes included in the game: the Marauder tribe,  the Terror Tribe, the Dark Tribe and the Machine tribe.
