Shadow of Mordor - 24 - 2

Why should you do all the head-exploding when you can get wild animals to do it for you?

More Mordor, anyone? Shadow of Mordor‘s latest DLC, Lord of the Hunt, is offering more story missions if those are your sort of thing.

Lord of the Hunt – out today – is arguably the first big DLC release for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, bringing with it a slew of new story missions. This time around Talion will be accompanying dwarven hunter Torvin on missions to tame a new set of beasts and use them to lay waste to Sauron’s forces.

There’s a Wretched Graug capable of vomiting toxin, a predatory Caragath that lets you perform stealth kills while mounted, and there’s the possibility of raising a Ghul horde to do your bidding. Unfortunately, you’re not alone in your mastery of monsters: your targets will include new Beastmaster Warchiefs, capable of riding into battle against you.

As you might expect there are also a load of new Epic runes, new beast hunting challenges, new collectibles, new achievements, and a new skin. You can have a look at the trailer below or purchase Shadow of Mordor: Lord of the Hunt for an unspecified amount (sorry – I don’t have a listing for it yet!) or as part of the £19.99 Season Pass. Which makes me guess it’ll probably be around £8 or so.
