Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released a new trailer for Middle-Earth: Shadow of War featuring The Agonizer, an orc with self-esteem issues.

Meet The Agonizer, An Orc With Self Esteem Issues In The Latest Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War Trailer

The latest Middle-Earth: Shadow of War trailer introduces us to The Agonizer, an orc that is being voiced by comedian and actor Kumail Nanjiani. The trailer reveals some of the characters voice lines and, as expected, they are quite funny, considering this is a game about killing loads of things with sword and bows. Nanjiani brings his own comedic flair to the character, which is quite refreshing since most orcs tend to be scary creatures with loads of pointy weapons.

The new game is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and continues the story of Talion and his quest for vengeance. From what has been shown so far, Shadow of War seems to drastically improve on the mechanics of the previous game. Hopefully, this means that there will be just as many memorable moments.

Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War is set to release in October for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

  1. Yeah, I don’t know how I feel about this. It’s a bit strange that an Orc has been added for comic relief. There certainly was funny parts in the first game, but this guy seems to be all about the laughs. Don’t get me wrong, it would be great to have some laughs, but this feels super forced considering the universe it’s in.

    Yes, I have to agree with Jarrod. I am happy to see well known modern actors getting inspired by Shadow of War, but I would imagine encountering this orc in a real play through would be a bit out of place.
