In the Return of the King film, one of the most terrifying parts of the film was when Frodo had to escape the lair of Shelob the spider. Now, players of Middle-Earth: Shadow of War will also get to face Shelob, but in a different way. For the latest trailer of the game shows a new take on Shelob, as a woman spirit that can grant visions of the future.
Her ability gives Talion pause as to whether she should be their ally, as her visions could save the world, but Celebrimbor isn’t so sure. For those who say that this is gratuitous, that Shelob isn’t a woman in any way, know that in the original book, Shelob is described as a spirit that resides in spider form. This is an interpretation of that.
Shadow of War will arrive October 10th.
