Middle-earth: Shadow of War has a new trailer, this time going over the beloved Nemesis System that the first game introduced. The gist of it is that orcs never forget, so the ones that you mutilate may become revenge-seeking rivals, while the ones that you spare may end up becoming your most trusted general.

This video reminded us that somewhere beneath the deserved microtransaction controversy and the spurts of awful marketing, there's a promising game here - a sequel to a title that went above and beyond what was expected of it. A real shame, isn't it?
