Shadow of Mordor: more throat cuts than Game of Thrones

E3 is next week, and Warner has released a new Middle-earth Shadow of Mordor CG trailer which showcases Talion's mission of vengeance. It is also full of neck-stabbing goodness. Seriously. No neck is safe in this video.

In tangent, Warner has also announced new runes are available for those who sign up for a WBID account.

The Orc Hunter Rune allows the protagonist to overcome Sauron's captains by increasing terror from his stealth takedowns. The Palantir-Gravewalker Rune, allows the player to spread fear among the army once the Captains are defeated.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is currently available for pre-order and releases worldwide on October 7 for PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
