Monolith have announced during a recent live stream that Middle-earth: Shadow of War will soon be receiving a free DLC addon. This DLC introduces infinite Shadow Wars for players who really loved the endgame content, and it’ll be released alongside the upcoming paid Slaughter Tribe DLC.
For those of you not in the know, the Shadow War is basically Shadow of War’s endgame. This is where the player has to defend fortresses from the attacks of orc tribes, vengeful war chiefs and cocky captains. By making this mode infinite, the player will has to defend each fortress that’s being attacked before sauntering off to defend the next one, forever.
If you cock it up and you’re defeated during these assaults then you’ll have to return to fight your foes once more, and reclaim your lost fortress. Alice noted in her review that the ‘fortress assaults are great set pieces’. This sort of continual back and forth is an addition to the game that many fans have been asking for since the release of Shadow of War. There’s currently no confirmed release date for the paid Slaughter Tribe DLC, but no doubt there’ll be some information on this soon.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War is out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
