Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War
The next story expansion for Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War is here and with it comes a new way to play Shadow Of War and many other updates for the game
Get ready for even more Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War to enjoy as the next story expansion for the game is here and ready for your PC, PS4, and Xbox One. You know, whichever system you may have purchased the game for and also are looking to add this DLC to. Especially since Monolith Productions has added in a new character for us to play in Shadow Of War with this story expansion as well as carry over into the main game if we so choose. Longtime fans of the game may already know who it is, but for those still looking to pick it up on its own, this DLC will let you play as Eltariel the Blade Of Galadriel. I am sure that means more to some of you out there than others.
Nonetheless, you will get to play as this elven warrior and use dual elven blades in the game. This will bring along some new combat abilities, skills, and gear for Shadow Of War, as you can expect, all to help you kill some new Nemesis characters that are also coming. The Nazgûl need killing and it looks like the tools for it will be there as well as the ability to gain eight unique Legendary Orcs to join us in the fight. We can see how this is all going to play out can we not? Either way, it is all here and ready for your download or purchase if you are still looking for more to do in Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War.

How are you feeling about all of these new updates coming to Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War as of today (2/6/18)? Do you like having the option to play as Eltariel in the main game or will it be odd to see scenes play out with that skin instead of Talion? Do you think that the extras for the dual blade combat will feel truly new and unique or will they be more or less deviations of the main sword options we already have? Let everyone out there know your thoughts on this and more down in the comments. If there is more for Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War, you know we will have it.
