Ahead of the game’s imminent release, Warner Bros. Interactive and Monolith Productions have detailed the season pass for their upcoming Tolkien-inspired RPG, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.
Priced at $24.99 (£15.99), the premium pack includes a trio of story missions, instant access to the game’s challenge modes and a stream of future content that the studio is yet to formally announce. For a full run-down on the recently-released pass, here’s the official list courtesy of Warner Bros.:
- Guardians of the Flaming Eye Orc Warband Mission: Face Sauron’s elite Defenders before the Black Gate and earn the Rising Flame rune
- Lord of the Hunt Story Mission: Players will gain new skills and earn unique epic runes as they hunt and tame legendary monsters of Mordor
- The Bright Lord Story Mission: Play as Celebrimbor, the great Elven king of the Second Age, and face Sauron and the might of his forces
- Early access to the Trials of War, including:
- Test of Speed Challenge Mode: You can demonstrate your efficiency in battle and earn high scores for Talion’s speed in defeating your foes
- Test of Wisdom Challenge Mode: You can prove your strategic abilities, through earning points for skill, speed and efficiency
- Endless Challenge Mode: This mode will continually spawn new legions of enemies. The Runes that you will earn will provide powerful upgrades
- Access to future content: Including runes, skins and additional add-on content
Those who opt into the season pass will also have the opportunity to gain stat-boosting runes from the story missions; all that you are required to do is go toe to toe with Sauron’s villainous elite. No mean feat, mind you. Elsewhere, the aforementioned challenge modes will have players competing with one and other in order to climb the in-game leaderboards as they dispatch waves of Orc enemies.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is due to release tomorrow, September 30th across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in North America with the European release pegged for October 3rd. For those holding out for the game on last-gen consoles, however, the title won’t arrive until November 18th and November 21st in the US and EU, respectively.
