New Middle-earth: Shadow of War trailer shows off Kumail Nanjiani’s Orc character

Established comedy actor Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley, The Big Sick) will be appearing in the upcoming sequel title Middle-earth: Shadow of War, and the game’s latest trailer offers an inside look into the character he’ll be portraying.

Nanjiani (who also recently lent his vocal talents to Mass Effect: Andromeda) will be playing a villainous Orc who calls himself The Agonizer and who is one of the many different named Orcs players can encounter through Shadow of War’s Nemesis system. Judging by what is shown in the below video, it looks like The Agonizer won’t play a crucial part in Shadow of War’s story, but will instead be a sort of comic relief character who can randomly show up at various times.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War will launch on October 10 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
