Shadow of Mordor will give you a unique orc nemesis

Plus plenty more from Outside Xbox.

Hello, Eurogamers. May I interest you in a fine selection of videos from Outside Xbox? How about some Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, which this week released its first substantial gameplay trailer?

The trailer revealed Arkham-inspired rhythmic combat and an intriguing procedural orc society: a dog-eat-dog hierarchy of unique enemies, one of whom will emerge as your personal nemesis. Monolith design director Michael de Plater details the game's setting, society and races (one dwarf, no hobbits) in the video below.
