Shadow of War’s govt producer handed away throughout the recreation’s manufacturing, however he’ll dwell on in-game, as this surprisingly soulful, decapitation-heavy trailer reveals.

Mike ‘Forthog’ Fogey has been re-envisioned as Forthog Orc-Slayer, seen right here saving Talion from, appropriately sufficient, an orc. The remaining of the trailer reveals him tearing by way of enemies, however with a better feeling of pathos and sentimentality than you may anticipate.

The trailer ends with a message from the growth crew:

“Mike ‘Forthog’ Forgey was our Government Producer and nice pal right here at Monolith.

We misplaced Mike to most cancers throughout the growth of Shadow of Battle and we wish to keep in mind and honor him with a little bit of immortality in Mordor.
