Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has revealed the four expansions that will be made available for Middle-earth: Shadow of War as part of the expansion pass.
Kicking things off in November will be the Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion, which sees the Slaughter tribe invade Mordor introducing new missions, Epic and Legendary Orcs, and tribal showdowns. Players will also gain access to the new Slaughter tribe fortress with an Overlord throne room, new monuments, and outposts.
This will be followed by the release of the Outlaw Tribe Nemesis Expansion in December. Similar to the Salughter Tribe DLC, this batch of content introduces the Outlaw tribe to Mordor with new missions, Epic and Legendary Orcs, tribal showdowns, and a new Overlord throne room, monuments, and outposts.
The next batch of content will be the game’s first piece of additional story content: The Blade of Galadriel Story Expansion. The DLC will be released in February 2018 and lets players control Eltariel, an elite assassin known as the Blade of Galadriel, as they take on the newest addition to the ranks of the Nazgûl. Players can wield Eltariel’s dual Elven blades, use new combat abilities, and encounter new Nemesis characters, such as Flint and Tinder and the Slayer of the Dead. There will also be an unlockable Eltariel character skin for the main story campaign.
Finally, the Desolation of Mordor Story Expansion will be released in May 2018 and puts players in the shoes of Baranor, the Captain of Minas Ithil and survivor of the city’s demise. During the DLC, players will be able hire mercenaries to create a human army and conquer the all new desert region of Lithlad. Like the Galadriel DLC, there will also be an unlockable Baranor skin for the main campaign.
The expansion pass is available to purchase now for $40, or is included in the Middle-earth: Shadow of War Gold Edition.
