Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor looks like the best Lord of the Rings game to date. It’s set in the time between The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, and tells the tale of a ranger who is seeking to kill Sauron. The newest trailer below reveals that a Wraith helps assist the ranger on his path, and is also the co-forger of the Ring of Power along with Sauron. Pretty cool story twist, eh?

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be released on September 30th.
