New story DLC for Middle-earth: Shadow of War is out today. Titled ‘Desolation of Mordor’, the story expansion allows players to take control of Baranor, the Captain of Minas Ithil and survivor of the city’s demise. Using a host of new abilities players can command the forces of Man as they take on the dealy Orc hordes.
Downloading the Desolation of Mordor DLC gives players access to the below.
Play as Baranor, the Captain of Minas Ithil and survivor of the city’s demise, in a new story expansion where players can command the forces of Man against a new Orc threat to the East.
Unite with Torvin, the Dwarven Hunter, to craft powerful new combat gear, including the shield, gauntlet, grapple and kite.
Hire mercenaries to create a human army and conquer the all-new desert region of Lithlad, lair of the Were-Wyrms.
Complete a host of new outpost missions and overthrow the imposing Marauder fortress of Shindrâm.
Fight to survive in Mordor as a human without the power of a Ring or a wraith to cheat death in a new rogue-like campaign mode.
In addition to the new story content, Warner Bros. has also released a number of free additions to the game:
Nemesis System Enhancements – Overlords can now have bodyguards, who function the same as Warchief bodyguards and are able to deploy spies.
Brutal Difficulty – Enemies are as fast and lethal as on Gravewalker difficulty, but damage is increased greatly, and Might and Wrath will fill up faster allowing players to use more special moves.
New Player Skin – Choose to appear as Baranor in the main story campaign.
Photo Mode Upgrades – New stickers, styles and filters inspired by the Desolation of Mordor Story Expansion.
Online Fight Pits & Online Conquests Update – Search for friends by player name when battling it out in online modes.
Warner Bros. has also confirmed that as of today players will no longer be able to purchase in-game gold using real money – they will, however, still be able to earn it through gameplay.
The Desolation of Mordor story pack DLC is available now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC for £15.99 or as part of the Full Expansion pass for £32.99.
