Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is a game we are desperately anxious to get our hands on and start playing. The game released a few weeks ago and already the reviews are extremely positive. The most impressive part of the game though is the new “nemesis” system that implemented in the game. The just of it is that as you complete certain missions on Mordor you encounter certain Orcs, and if they by chance happen to kill you, they become stronger and move up in the line of power and ranks. This means the next time you face the same Orc he will remember you, be stronger and become a pretty tough Orc to kill.

We decided to take a look at some of these Orc champions, these monsters may be hideous, but they’re designed beautifully and looks like great fun to kill. ¬†What follows is a (heavily curated) selection of the Orcs Of Shadow of Mordor:

Out favorite geek youtuber Boogie2988 put together this fun game play video that demonstrates the nemesis system beautifully:
