Warner Bros Interactive have released a new trailer for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor showing of the Dark Ranger pre order bonus. The Dark Ranger pack was announced a while ago, though this is the first time we are seeing it in action. The DLC pack will come with a new costume for Talion and the “Test of Strength” challenge map that will allow players to collect runes and power them selves up.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor takes place between the events of The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. Talion voiced by the brilliant Troy Baker is former Ranger is murdered by the forces of Sauron after watching his family face the same fate. Talion is resurrected by a Wraith that also has a vendetta against the Dark Lord and his Ring of Power.

One of the best looking parts of the game so far is the Nemesis system that will track Talion’s interactions with high ranking Ork’s and help build more personal enemies. As players wipe out captains and war chiefs the power vacuum will see the rise lower level enemies. Players also have the abilities of the Wraith, allowing them to dominate weaker minds and bend them to their will.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be coming October 10th to the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Some of the games features will not be available on the PS3 or Xbox 360 due to lack of power. There are other Pre Order bonus available that offer extra costumes of powerful runes.
