Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has revealed some of the talent that will be lending their voices to Monolith’s Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and has also released a new story trailer.
The game’s voice cast includes Troy Baker (The Last of Us, Batman: Arkham Origins, BioShock Infinite, Batman: Arkham City) as protagonist Talion, Nolan North (Uncharted series, Batman: Arkham Origins) as Black Hand, Alastair Duncan (Mass Effect series, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception) who will voice Wraith, Laura Bailey (Halo 4, Batman: Arkham Origins, The Last of Us) who brings life to Ioreth, and Liam O’Brien (Infamous: Second Son, Grand Theft Auto V, The Last of Us) as Gollum.
The publisher also confirmed that Christian Cantamessa (Red Dead Redemption) has written the story, and that video game musical composer Garry Schyman (Bioshock Infinite) is in charge of the game’s score.
A new story trailer (above) titled “Make them your own” has also been released. “The game begins on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate,” WBIE explains. “Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance. As Talion’s personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power and confront the ultimate nemesis.”
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is set to launch October 7 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
