 Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Trailer – Meet Ratbag
Today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) and Monolith Productions released the Shadow of Mordor Story Trailer – Meet Ratbag.
While Uruks are dynamically generated through the Nemesis System and unique to each player, Ratbag is a special Uruk who plays a critical role in the story as Talion goes on his journey to destroy Sauron’s army.

Middle-earth™: Shadow of Mordor™ delivers a dynamic game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will. The game begins on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate. Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance. Based on the player’s actions with the in-game Nemesis System, every enemy encountered is distinct and can evolve to become a personal archenemy through the course of the game.  As Talion’s personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power and confront the ultimate nemesis.

Middle-earth™: Shadow of Mordor™   will launch in the UK on 3rd October 2014 for PlayStation™4, Xbox One, PlayStation™3, and Xbox 360; and on 2nd October 2014 for PC and Steam.

 Food Fight, a character from Skylanders Trap Team known for his amazing tomato-firing skills,  hosted the party

La Tomatina is a famous week-long festival featuring music, parades, dancing and fireworks, among many others activities. This festival is known throughout the world for its famous tomato fight, which brings together more than 20,000 grown-ups each year.

But why should the fun be limited to adults?  For the second year in a row, La Tomatina ran a special edition for children, which took place in the main square of Buñol on Saturday August 23. 

Food Fight, one of the new characters introduced in Skylanders Trap Team, could not miss an opportunity like this! A veggie warrior, in the shape of an artichoke, he usually reserves his tomatoes for the evil villains of Skylands. However, Food Fight partnered with Tomatina Kids Festival to inspire the action at the tomato-hurling party.

During the celebrations, the young participants took aim with 6,500 kilograms of tomatoes - all in the name of fun!  

Skylanders Trap Team launches on 10th October 2014.
