Ratbag the Uruk is important to the storyline in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Ratbag is an Uruk. A special Uruk. He’s also a rather damn ugly one at that. Then again, Ururks in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor aren’t supposed to be pretty.

They never were to begin with really, the vile, evil, twisted monsters. The only thing they are good for is the satisfaction you get when running your sword through their foul, smelly meat.

Unfortunately, this particular Uruk plays a “critical role” in Talion’s story. Hopefully, we’ll get to stab him through at some point. The only good Uruk is a dead Uruk after all.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is due on PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in late September, with the PC version coming in early October.
