Shadow of Mordor free DLC lets you play as Lithariel

You can now play as the warrior princess from the main campaign; plus, a new super-tough Challenge Mode.


Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is getting another free batch of downloadable content today. The "Power of Defiance" bundle wraps up a new skin, challenge mode, and epic rune. 

With the new character skin you can play as Lithariel, the daughter of Lady Marwen, who plays a role in the main story. Presumably, Talion's very male-sounding voice will be swapped out as well. A "Test of Defiance" challenge mode has you take on Warchiefs without being able to revive or use Wraith powers. Reviving gets a little easier with the new rune, Defiant to the End, which gives you an additional Last Chance. 

The pack is now available via a free update on PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This is similar to the Power of Shadow DLC that came out shortly after release, which also included a new skin and runes.
