Warner Bros. has released the first gameplay trailer for Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.

All of this new Middle-earth: Shadow of War customization allows you to create new, unique stories that will allow you to have a different story every time you play through the game. Interestingly enough, there are multiple types of Orcs within the army.

Another orc is an armoured rider who is immune to a series of environmental buffers like fire - and can burst through flames of artillery fire. Players send their armies to each area to take them over.

As Talion approaches the fortress, he is greeted by Thrak Storm-Bringer.

In a fierce conflict where he initially gets cursed, Talion manages to break free and slay his adversary - with a swift axe to the head. These characters forge their own story in a way with the newly improved "Nemesis System". Ur-Hakon the overlord of the fortress of Seregost for example is a unique enemy based on a user's gameplay, while the fortress itself will also have qualities that are unique for each player.

The spy, Deadeye, delivers a cheeky one-liner before shoot arrows at the warchief from afar in a stealth attack - and killing him. Now players can take control of dragons, and fly in the air while lobbing balls of fire at the enemies below. Shadow of War, it sees the return of Talion and his bonded Wraith, Celebrimbor, making a comeback as The Bright Lord.

He's then able to convert the former enemy to his side - and make him a new follower.

Before meeting our adversaries, de Plater introduces two of Talion's followers, a Marauder Beast Mount and a "Demolisher", a creature whose name doesn't do it justice. If the system is as dynamic and organic as Monolith Productions suggest it will be, this could be a very interesting addition to the sequel. This is where the new Nemesis System kicks in, as pointed out by Kotaku.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be released in August of this year.
