As if the last trailer didn’t make it obvious enough, Monolith and Warner Bros have revealed yet another trailer for Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, this time putting the focus squarely on Shelob, the ancient spirit of darkness. Although isn’t always the terrifyingly giant spider we’ve come and begrudgingly love, but can also shapeshift into a beautiful woman to get her own way.
Shelob’s not an overly nice creature then, and she quickly puts this into play in this latest Shadow of War trailer, planting the seed of distrust in Talion’s mind, causing him to doubt even his ghostly elvish buddy Celebrimbor.
It looks as if the player will have to form an uneasy alliance with Shelob, despite witnessing her true nature. She certainly wouldn’t be too bad to have on your side during a hectic castle siege, but that seems a little too much to ask of our eight-legged friend.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is out on October 10th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
