It’s Time To Go Hunting In The Launch Trailer For Middle-Earth: Shadow Of Mordor DLC Lord Of The Hunt


Monolith Productions has issued a war cry to fans of its critically-acclaimed RPG Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor ahead of the release of the game’s latest DLC, Lord of the Hunt.

Due to arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC today — there is no word yet on when the content pack will weave its way to last-gen platforms — the add-on comprises a whole new bout of story content along with new monsters, runes and even character skins. It will be priced at $9.99 as a standalone expansion, while those who purchased Shadow of Mordor‘s Season Pass will be able to download the DLC immediately.

Here’s a list of that new content in question, as provided by publisher Warner Bros. Interactive:

New Story & Lore – Discover more tales from Torvin, the Dwarven Hunter, as you work together to tame the beasts of Mordor and fight Sauron’s minions.
New Nemeses – Face off against the Beastmaster Warchiefs, powerful new Uruks who have the ability to ride monsters and engage in perilous mounted combat.
New Monsters – Ride into battle on the Wretched Graug to vomit toxin at your foes, stalk your enemies on the predatory Caragath and attack from the shadows or raise an all-consuming Ghul Horde.
New Missions & Challenges – New Beast Hunting challenges and collectibles open up new trophies and achievements.
New Epic Runes – Make your Mount unstoppable with five new epic Runes that make you the ultimate hunter.
Test of the Wild – Test your skills against the Beastmasters and mount your trophies on the leaderboard.
New Character Skin – Lord of the Hunt skin transforms Talion into the ultimate Beastmaster.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor made its debut across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC back in September before rearing its mutilated Orc-like head on PS3 and Xbox 360 at a later date. For more on Monolith’s RPG, be sure to check out our review.
