Orcs have been slain by the thousands in Middle-earth: Shadow of War, but there are orc-slayers out there that believe this still isn't enough. For those people, the Shadow of War Expansion Pass is on the horizon. Wednesday morning, publisher Warner Bros. revealed new details on what the Expansion Pass is set to contain.
Two pieces of DLC will be dedicated to adding new tribes. The Slaughter tribe hungers for blood and can ambush players anytime, while the Outlaw tribe are rebels that reject any notion of rule. Both tribes will offer new mission, Epic and Legendary Orcs, a new fortress, and Legendary gear.
In terms of story expansions, players will get to play as Eltariel in the Blade of Galadriel storyline. In addition to a new storyline, players will get to familiarize themselves with entirely new combat tools and encounters, while also getting the Eltariel skin for the main story.
The second story expansion is called Desolation of Mordor, allowing players to step into the role of Baranor. Fighting alongside Dwarven Hunter Torvin, the premise of this story involves warding off an Orc threat off to the East by hiring mercenaries and fighting against dangerous threats without the aid of a Ring or wraith. The latter campaign changes things up significantly by adding roguelike elements to the game. The Baranor character skin will also be added to the main story.
The Expansion Pass fun begins in November with the Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion. The Outlaw Tribe Nemesis Tribe Expansion will be released in December, while the Blade of Galadriel Story Expansion hits in February and the Desolation of Mordor Story Expansion rounds things out in May. Those who own the Middle-earth: Shadow of War Gold Edition will have access to these DLC packs at no extra charge, while everyone else can pick up the expansion pass for $39.99.
