Middle-earth: Shadow of War has today gone and got itself not just a paid expansion, but a ton of brand new features and updates too.
First up is the paid content and that comes in the form of the Slaughter Tribe Nemesis expansion. Priced at £11.99, this brings the gruesome and bloodthirsty Slaughter tribe to Mordor. Equipped with their own unique weapons and fighting style, this expansion will deliver new missions, the fiercest of battles, a brand new fortress theme and more – with the Nemesis System bringing it all to life.
The Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion includes:
- Tribal Showdowns – New missions allowing players to face down Captains from the Slaughter tribe, with each showdown bringing unique challenges to complete.
- Tribal War Bands – Aid your ally and defeat your nemesis when facing off in the new Tribal War Bands quests as Captains from the Slaughter tribe bring their own forces to clash in battle.
- New Fortress Theme – Fortresses can now be commanded by and embody the characteristics of the Slaughter tribe, including themed monuments, outposts and Overlord throne room.
- Legendary Gear Set – Hunt down Legendary Slaughter tribe Orcs for a new Legendary gear set with additional upgrade challenges.
- Blood Ambush – Repel Captains from the Slaughter tribe as a succession of Orcs stage an ambush in true Slaughter tribe fashion.
If you’re an Expansion Pass holder or an owner of the Shadow of War Gold Edition, then you’ll find the Slaughter Tribe making their way to a game near you real soon. If not, then well, you’ll just have to pay out for it.
Additionally and there are also a number of free content updates and features arriving today for all Middle-earth: Shadow of War owners, including:
- Endless Siege – Defend your fortresses against Sauron’s forces as the Dark Lord tries to reclaim Mordor in the Endless Siege.
- Rebellion – Crush the rebel Ologs and Uruks in your forces as they seek to undermine the Bright Lord.
