The Fight for Middle-Earth Continues
J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings fans have a new reason to celebrate. While waiting for Amazon‘s new TV series based on the classic fantasy books, they can pass the time playing the latest DLC for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Called the Desolation of Mordor, it is a story DLC which takes Baranor, Captain of the fallen city of Minas Ithil through the Eastern Deserts of Lithlad.
Since Baranor is merely a mortal without a Ring or Power, he cannot cheat death or dominate any Orcs he encounters. Instead, he has to ally with the Dwarven hunter Torvin. Luckily, Torvin is a master of ancient technologies so he is a worthy companion.
What New Content is Added with this DLC?
- Play as Baranor, the Captain of Minas Ithil and survivor of the city’s demise, in a new story expansion where players can command the forces of Man against a new Orc threat to the East.
- Unite with Torvin, the Dwarven Hunter, to craft powerful new combat gear, including the shield, gauntlet, grapple and kite.
