Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War
A new trailer for the next DLC for Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War is here and it shows us a bit more on how this will expand the story Shadow Of War has already given us
The story for Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War is getting further expanded here soon and we have our first look at the next DLC that is coming. Well, more of a Story Expansion than a DLC but it is what it is for now and Monolith Productions is wrapping it all up for us and putting a little Orc skull on it. It would seem like this would be the last of the Expansion Pass DLC for Shadow Of War as well, although there is always the chance of more. The Desolation Of Mordor just happens to be the latest and will pick up the story of Baranor and how he is going to tackle the latest in Orc threats. The title makes it sound like something very different if you ask me.
Anyways, that would be the basics of this new story bit for Shadow Of War. The expanded explanation is that this is the Captain of Minas Ithil that survived the Fallen City’s demise. As you will see in the following trailer for the DLC, he has found his brother Serka and the two must hire an army to take on that Orc threat I mentioned above. It is most likely going to be a lot more than that, but you can see what we all have so far just below. Hopefully it will make Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War a well-rounded title. Not that it has not been already that is.

It is also part of the Story Expansion Pass that will run you $24.99 USD if you do not care about the Full Expansion Pass. Alternatively, you can also pick up the story expansion all by itself for $19.99 USD if this was the only bit that caught your eye for Shadow Of War‘s DLC. So many options to pick it up and so little time before it launches. Just the way we should all love it.
