The new Official Shadow of War Shelob Reveal Trailer dropped and show a surprising take on Shelob of Cirith Ungol. The same huge spider that captured Frodo in Lord of the Rings, also has the ability to turn into an English woman.

Though the ability to change from beast to human is not unheard of in Tolkien lore, we're looking at you Beorn, Shelob the spider has always been just a spider. While it may be true that the idea of an attractive Shelob seducing the ranger may be more appealing than a giant spider, the artistic license taken by the development team might take a few Tolkien die-hards by surprise.

Microsoft has reportedly updated their site to show a release date of August 25, 2017, moving the release date up from October 10. It hasn't been confirmed but perhaps we might be able to enjoy killing some orcs a bit earlier than expected.
