Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released a new trailer, along with details for the Shadow of War Expansion Pass. The trailer shows off some of the additional content provided as part of the expansion pass in particularly bloody fashion. The first DLC will also come with the previously announced infinite Shadow Wars feature.

The pass comes with the following downloadable content: Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion, Outlaw Tribe Nemesis Expansion, Blade of Galadriel story DLC, and the Desolation of Mordor story add-on.

First up will be the Slaughter Tribe Nemesis, which comes out in November. This DLC sees the introduction of new missions, the appearance of epic and legendary Orcs, tribal showdowns, and even more fierce battles to partake in. Players can hunt the Slaughter tribe Orcs to get legendary gear and upgrade challenges. This DLC also sees the addition of a new fortress, an Overlord throne room, some monuments and more outposts

This will be followed by the Outlaw Tribe DLC which comes out in December, which adds new missions, some more legendary and epic Orcs, and a fortress which focuses on the rebellious Outlaw tribe.

The Blade of Galadriel’s story expansion will be released in February, 2018, and gives players the chance to play as an elite assassin called Eltariel, as they go head-to-head with the newest addition to the Nazgûl. Eltariel comes equipped with dual Elven blades, and can harness the power of the Light of Galadriel with a number of new combat abilities, skills and gear. Eight unique legendary Orcs will return to join forces with the player in the main story campaign, and they’ll also come with some Nemesis-boosted abilities.

In the final story DLC, players can take on the role of Baranor, the Captain of Minas Ithil, who also happens to be the survivor of the city’s bloody demise. Baranor will command the forces of Man against a new Orc threat oncoming from the East. To defeat this looming threat, Baranor must unite with the Dwarven hunter, Torvin, and craft a range of new combat gear including a shield, gauntlet, chain and glider. Players will be able to hire mercenaries to create an army and conquer the desert region of Lithlad. This time around the player will have to battle against the evil Orc forces without the power of a Ring or even a wraith to cheat death in the rogue-like campaign mode.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
