Play as Baranor in a New Region
It’s been a while since their last expansion, and developer Monolith has implemented a number of changes since the launch of Middle: Earth: Shadow of War. The newest revealed deals with a new story DLC: Desolation of Mordor, in which players shall take control Gondor Captain Baranor.
Like the previous DLC, Blade of Galadriel, Shadow of War will receive a new playable area, character, and skin. In this particular expansion, players must recruit mercenaries in a mission to combat Mordor threat in the East. Complete with a new desert region, it falls on the player to organize a riff-raff group into a crack force that can lay siege to the Marauder fortress of Shindrâm.
Since players no longer take on the role of Talion, the orc thralls, it seems, have been replaced by a different breed of warrior. Find it all in the Desolation of Mordor expansion, available in the Season Pass. A summation of DLC content, provided in a Warner Bros press release, is available for your perusal below.
