Watch us play Middle-earth: Shadow of War and wince at our caragor's noble sacrifice

You mess with Talion in Middle-earth: Shadow of War? Fine, so does everybody else. You mess with his caragor? Oh, buddy. You've had it now. That's the lesson we taught orcish warmonger Ar-Benu in our hands-on time with the game, part of which you can watch above in our full 9-minute playthrough of the Mounted Massacre mission. And scroll on for the highlight reel.

Execution-by-orc is frickin' brutal

Burning orcs are extra scary

Need to clear a crowd? It's ghost elf time

Your caragor will die to save you

But you can still make friends
