Today, developer Monolith Productions and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment revealed the first details about the game’s Expansion Pass, and it seems like it will keep us occupied for the next four months.
Two new tribes will be added to the game: Slaughter and Outlaw, which will be added in November and December 2017. The first is an incredibly violent group of Orcs, while the Outlaw are composed of outcasts and rejects.
In addition to that, players will also receive access to the Blade of Galadriel story expansion, which will give players the ability to wield new Elven Blades, and a new ability called the Light of Galadriel in brand new story missions. That will be available in January 2018.
Finally, we have the Desolation of Modor story expansion, which will see players taking the role of Baranor, the Captain of Minas Ithil. The expansion will also unlock a brand new playable area the Desert of Lithlad. The expansion will be available in 2018.
The expansion pass is available to purchase for $39.99, but is also included with the Gold Edition of the game. As of the time of this writing, it’s unknown how much each DLC will cost if purchased separately.
To celebrate the announcement of the expansion pass content, a brand new trailer was released, showing off gameplay from each DLC. Middle-earth: Shadow of War was originally released on October 10, 2017, and is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
