Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is like the little engine that could. While we were certainly excited for the title, its extremely positive reviews have sealed it as one of the must-have games in the already packed month of October. And in order to remind everyone of its existence, developer Monolith Productions has released a nifty new launch trailer.

While there's no actual gameplay here, the short clip does give us a nice look at some of the malicious malefactors that we'll be tracking down in the main game. It also provides some predictably gruesome gore to ogle while listening to its painfully inappropriate music. We don't remember Frodo ever mentioning his love for industrial techno.
