Try and Defeat the Machine Tribe in Middle Earth: Shadow of War; Orcs Finally Discover Mechanical Weapons

Monolith and Warner Bros. detail Middle Earth: Shadow of War’s new Machine tribe.

Middle Earth: Shadow of War is just a couple of months away, and Monolith Studios and Warner Bros. are adding a lot to the sequel of an already impressive title, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor.

The latest reveal is the addition of the Machine tribe. This tribe’s Orcs have finally discovered and learned how to forge mechanical weapons, taking advantage of their access to Tamon Angren’s mines.

A faction of Orcs who believe that Mordor is on the cusp of a new age, one of industry and mechanization. Fueled by the mines of Tamon Angren, their smithies and forges turn out much of the Dark Lord’s war materiel, and the black plumes in the sky are a sign that the Machine tribe’s factories are near. In Shadow of War, Orcs now belong to tribes, which extend their influence stemming from the Overlords ruling the mighty fortresses throughout the open world, providing a rich ecosystem of missions, exploration and a dynamic Orc society with diverse Orc cultures, all brought to life through the expanded Nemesis System. The Machine tribe takes a mechanical approach to warfare with their soldiers moving in lockstep. Every member of the tribe sees himself as just a cog in the larger apparatus, one that someday will encompass all of Mordor.

Middle Earth: Shadow of War releases on October 10 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Make sure to check out the trailer below for information on the Machine tribe:
