Middle-Earth: Shadow of War Trailer Reveals Spartan Orcs… More or Less

The Warmonger Tribe is ready to dine in hell in Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, while a series of funny commercials will brighten your day.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War has taken inspirations from quite a few different cultures and subcultures to fashion its Uruk tribes, and today we get to see the Warmonger Tribe in a new trailer.

The Warmonger tribe worships war, and for its orcs every moment not spent in battle is wasted time. Looking at the trailer, it’s hard not to expect someone screaming “This is Mordor!”

While the Warmonger Tribe’s orcs are probably a lot less handsome than Leonidas’ Spartans, there are certainly quite a few traits that remind the 300 film quite closely, including the overall feel and the shield wall.

Am I reading too much into it? After the ninja orcs of the Dark Tribe and the bling orcs of the Marauder Tribe, I don’t think so.

Incidentally, over the past few days Warner Bros. has been releasing a series of funny live action commercials, and you can check those out below as well.

This is the seventh tribe revealed with a trailer, as we also saw other videos showing the Dark Tribe the Marauder tribe,  the Terror Tribe, the Machine tribethe Feral Tribe and the Mystic Tribe.

Today we also learned that the Forthog Orc-Slayer DLC has been made free for everyone who will purchase the game. You can also take a look at our latest interview with Creative Director Michael de Plater.

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