The drums are sounding, and war is almost here. Today we meet another tribe in the upcoming Middle-earth: Shadow of War — the Warmonger Tribe. These vicious beasts will bring a storm of terror, misery, and slaughter to the battlefield. Heavily armored, brutal, and massive, this clan brings fire catapults, heavy weapons, and fury to the battlefield. Here’s the official line on these vicious slayers of man:
For a Warmonger Orc, every moment not spent in battle is a moment wasted as their greatest Warchiefs are those who have carved a bloody swath across Mordor, slaying everything in their path. In Shadow of War, Orcs now belong to tribes, which extend their influence stemming from the Overlords ruling the mighty fortresses throughout the open world, providing a rich ecosystem of missions, exploration and a dynamic Orc society with diverse Orc cultures, all brought to life through the expanded Nemesis System. The Warmonger Orcs are masters of war and combat, they seek it out and relish it, honoring Sauron’s name with every riven shield and battle won.
You won’t have to wait long to face the Warmaster Clan, or the other specialized clans of Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Middle-earth: Shadow of War is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 10th, 2017, with support for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X features.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War picked up a nomination for Best PC Game of E3 2017, but WON for Best Multiplatform game, as well as winning our top award for Best of E3 2017.
