Fighting the forces of Sauron is not normally our idea of a laugh a minute, but it looks like Shadow of War will have a little murderous, comic relief. Comedian and actor, Kumail Nanjiani, will be voicing one of the orcs in the upcoming game.
“The Agonizer” is intent on killing you, but he is still working on a witty catch phrase or intimidating threat to strike fear into the hearts of men. He vocalizes these moments of lower confidence in the game, and it should be a quick break from all the other orcs that want to turn your skin into a fashionable leather jacket for use on Mordor’s own version of Project Runway.
Check out the trailer and be ready to be a fearsome sounding board when Middle-earth: Shadow of War releases on October 10th.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
