Yesterday, we reported that the release date for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor has been moved forward a week. Today a new trailer has been released, revealing the identity of the games Wraith and his connection to Sauron and the Rings of Power.

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

The trailer reveals that the Wraith was the greatest forger of the Second Age, trained by Sauron to forge all the rings of power, apart from the one ring made by Sauron himself. We also get a quick look at the battle of the last alliance and the game’s version of Gollum and Sauron, hopefully we wont have to fight the latter.  

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be coming October 3rd to the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Some of the game’s features will not be available on the PS3 or Xbox 360 due to lack of power. There are other pre-order bonuses available that offer extra costumes of powerful runes.
