Wondering what that Wraith dude (whose super-secret identity was revealed at Comic Con last week) in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor can actually do? Warner Bros. has released a new video to fill you in.

I'm going to put a *spoiler warning* here just in case people would rather head into Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor without knowing anything of the game's plot - Monolith has released a story trailer revealing the identity of the mysterious wraith that possesses main character Talion and allows him to master his supernatural powers.

It's none other than Celebrimbor, the fabulously named elf who forged the Rings of Power (including the One Ring) evil overlord Sauron used to dominate Middle-earth.

Developer Monolith has released a new trailer at E3, explaining Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's intriguing Nemesis System in greater detail.

The system creates a huge cast of orcs and goblins, each with their own weaknesses, strengths and specialties. Each time they encounter main character Talion they'll come away changed by the experience - should they land a killing blow against him, for example, they'll be more powerful when you next meet, even bringing up their previous victory while taunting you in combat.
