Following an “Orc Tales” trailer earlier today, Warner Bros. and Monolith Productions have released another trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War introducing the “Forthog Orc Slayer,” an orc slayer based on Shadow of War executive producer Mike “Forthog” Forgey, who was lost to cancer during the game’s development.
The Forthog Orc Slayer will be released as paid downloadable content, with $3.50 from every purchase made from the United States (excluding Alabama, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, Mississippi, and South Carolina) going to the Forgey family through December 31, 2019.
Here’s Forhog Orc Slayer’s description, via Warner Bros.:
A legend among the Orcs of Mordor, Forthog Orc Slayer is an unstoppable warrior who saves Mordor’s mightiest heroes at their moment of greatest need.
Mike “Forthog” Forgey was our Executive Producer and great friend here at Monolith. He was always ready to leap into the fray and save the game whenever and wherever he was most needed. We lost Mike to cancer during the development of Shadow of War, and we want to remember and honor him with a little bit of immortality in Mordor. The legendary Forthog Orc Slayer is our way to continue having Mike leap into battle and save us when we’re down.
We hope that you will share in the experience of being saved by the legendary Forthog Orc Slayer as you enter the land of shadow.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC worldwide on October 10.
