Is Shelob a Savior or an Enemy – New Shadow of War Trailer Shows Her in a New Light (VIDEO)

San Diego Comic Con is rife with news of returning favourites and brand new tales – from Nickelodeon’s nostalgic come-back, to awesome Spawn news, there’s a lot happening and for those that were fans of the first game Shadow of Mordor, the latest trailer for its sequel, Shadow of War, will be right up your alley.

If you’ve watched the Lord of the Rings movies, you might remember the gigantic spider that almost killed Frodo and his buddy Sam. Shelob was a fearsome creature and now she’s back as a spotlight character for Middle-Earth Shadow of War. You can see her place in the upcoming narrative in the video below to see for yourself if she is a savior or an enemy.

During the Shadow of War panel at this year’s SDCC, Shelob made her big debut both in her familiar spider-form as well as her reveal as a breathtakingly beautiful woman in a simple black dress. In the trailer seen above, she interacts with the game’s protagonist Talion and provides him with certain visions. These visions are meant to tease a possible future and coerces the main character into certain action in order to save the city of Minas Ithil. Talion’s partner wasn’t as impressed, and the elf who created the three elven rings of Power isn’t shy about letting that be known.

Her sight may be what saves us all.”

Shadow of Mordor was a huge hit among gamers and its successor is looking every bit as impressive. You can check out Shelob yourself when Middle-Earth Shadow of War drops on October 10th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Will you be checking out the latest title in this growing franchise? Do you think Shelob can be trusted or is Talion a fool for heeding the visions given to him?
