Developer Monolith Productions has re-imagined one of Lord of the Rings biggest enemies for Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
Avid readers of Tolkien’s books or viewers of Peter Jackson’s big screen trilogy will remember Shelob well. Formerly a giant arachnid that came within inches of taking Frodo’s life after the protagonist was betrayed by Gollum, Shelob has now been reimagined as a humanoid woman with a British accent for Shadow of War.
Although in the trailer (below) she later turns back into arachnid form, Shelob appears to be an ally to Talion, however, fellow companion Celebrimbor has other ideas, urging his better half to distrust the prophecy of the former eight legged monstrosity.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War will be available for Xbox One X, Xbox One, Windows 10 PC (Windows Store and Steam), PS4 and PS4 Pro beginning October 10th, 2017.
