Monolith’s previews of Middle-earth: Shadow of War’s orc tribes continues this week with a new video introducing the Marauders. They may not be as ruthless as the Terror tribe or as intuitive as the Machine tribe, but the latest Shadow of War faction to get its own trailer still manages to be just as memorable as those that came before it.

The introductions began earlier this month with a short Shadow of War trailer introducing fans to the Terror tribe, orcs who disfigure themselves, torture their enemies and desecrate the bodies of the fallen to strike fear in anyone who opposes them. Monolith continued the series with a trailer featuring the Machine tribe, mechanically-inclined orcs capable of reinforcing keeps with much sturdier stone and building tremendous machines of war. And now we meet the most money-driven orcs who still call Mordor home in Shadow of War.

Unlike their predecessors, the Marauders are fond of the finer things in life. Or at least the finest instruments of war that they’re able to find on the bodies of their victims. The Marauders made a name for themselves by taking trophies, preferably gold ones, from the fallen. As a result, many of their commanding officers are adorned in some of the flashiest armor we’ll see in Shadow of War . Leaders will fill their throne rooms with riches and grog will be plentiful in Marauder keeps. A far cry from the flayed trolls and machines of war seen in previous footage.

For an early look at Middle-earth: Shadow of War, take a minute to watch the Marauder trailer that debuted on Tuesday. Then head down to the comments and let us know which orc tribe(s) you’re planning to align Talion with when Shadow of War hits PC and consoles in October.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game debuts Oct. 10.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War
Shadow Of War Players Will Tell Better Stories Than The Game
And the next chapter of Talion and Celebrimbor’s story was pretty underwhelming. But the stories people tell about their Nemesis encounters, which are more chaotic than ever before, will undoubtedly shape public opinion more than any criticism Shadow of War garners along the way.
  • Nemesis system does an even better job of letting players witness and tell unique, action-driven stories
  • Most of the narrative content is just plain boring
