    This week on MonolithLive , we're going to continue with what we're making a tradition.

    This Friday we'll once again be joined by VP of Creative, Michael de Plater for a quick chat. He's quite enjoyed answering your questions live, so he's decided to make Twitch a regular part of his Friday. But, remember – his time is limited! Get there early. (Don’t say we didn’t warn you.)

    After that, we'll be shouting out the fastest among you live on Twitch – and, we'll kick-off our next challenge. Last time, you took up the mantle of the Test of Speed , but this time around you're going to be removing our ability to use Talion's sword, dagger, or bow. Think we're up for it?

    See you this Friday. Same Monolith time, same Monolith place: 2 PM Pacific/ 5 PM…

    Daily life in Mordor is far from easy. The Uruk that inhabit this freshly darkened land are watching every inch of it for the treacherous beasts that have learned to call it home, the other Uruks working their way into the rank of Captain, and the so-called "Gravewalker”.

    Since you're new here, we wanted to give you a crash course on what day-to-day life is like for an Uruk.

    The Uruk is the elite of all the Orc breeds. They're grown in vats as a leadership caste and are taller, stronger, better able to withstand daylight, and more ill-tempered than the other lesser Orcs. They come in all shapes, sizes, and personalities. Their unique personalities will dictate what jobs they do, how they interact with their fellow Uruks, and even how they mi…

    They were the tip of the spear that plunged back into Mordor, slaughtering the Rangers that stood in his way in the name of their Dark Lord. The time has come for you to learn more about them, in our latest gameplay trailer.
