Today Monolith Productions, and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment released a brand new trailer of Middle-earth: Shadow of War introducing another of the tribes of orcs which will be included in the game.

It’s rather obvious that the good folks at Monolith took inspiration from various sources to design their Uruk tribes, and this one certainly seems to be inspired at least in part by Japanese Shinobi. The Dark Tribe appears to enjoy using stealth to stalk their enemies, using fast and agile weapons, and they even can disappear and reappear somewhere else after throwing a smoke bomb on the ground. Sounds familiar? Well, it is.

“Adept at ambushes, double-crosses and battlefield trickery, the Dark tribe wields power beyond what their numbers would suggest, favoring treachery and betrayal to get the job done.”

This is the fourth tribe introduced this way, as we also saw other trailers showing the Marauder tribe,  the Terror Tribe, and the Machine tribe.

If you want to see more about the game, after reading our recent hands-on preview, you can see how the game’s Executive Producer has been immortalized in the title after passing away, the the “Orc Tales” trailer released a few days ago, one showing off the endgame, a rather long one showing more of Cirith Ungol and the Terror Tribe, more gameplay footage showing the marketplacesome semi-recent gameplay from San Diego Comic Conthe trailer featuring the rather unfamiliar version of Shelobanother story trailer, and one introducing the Nemesis Forge system.

The game will launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 10.
