A new story trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War has been released.

In the new video, Talion and Celebrimbor use the power of the New Ring to “forge an army and confront the deadliest of enemies,” in Middle-earth: Shadow of War.

These enemies include Sauron and his Nazgul, obviously. The video also showcases new allies, villains and creatures which the player will encounter.

If you aren’t familiar with the first game, Shadow of Mordor, Celebrimbor was a smith who lived in the Elvish realm of Eregion and was tricked by Sauron into forging the Rings of Power, which kicked off the events in The Lord of the Rings. Celebrimbor was captured when Sauron and his forces attacked Eregion, and laid waste to it. He was tortured horridly and eventually died.

In the first game, he returns to the earthly realm as a wraith who bonds with Talion’s body, in order to seek revenge over the deaths of his loved ones. Talion is also out to avenge similar deaths which occurred at the hands of Sauron.

Players will once again utilize Celebrimbor’s wraith abilities to both fight and manipulate enemies in the game.

Announced in February for release on August 22, Shadow of War was recently delayed into October.

You’ll be able to get your hands on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One come October 10.
