The trend of favoring specific platforms through exclusive missions or content continues with the upcoming Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, set in the famous Lord of the Rings universe. This time it’s Sony’s PlayStation 4 which is being favored.
In a post on PlayStation blog, Shadow of Mordor’s developer, Monolith Production’s Community Manager Andy Salisbury confirmed that the game will have exclusive missions for those who pre-order on PS4.
Pre ordering the game on PS4 will grant players the PlayStation Legion Edition with its own unique missions which will have players fighting against two more Warbands of Mordor, the Blood Hunters and the Flesh Burners.
According to Salisbury, these two new Warbands are among the most fearsome ones in Sauron’s army with the Blood Hunters classified as assassins tasked with taking down high value targets for Sauron. Hiding from Blood Hunters is futile because as the name suggests, they can smell a person’s blood in the air making tracking easier.
The Flesh Burners are expert archers, favoring crossbows and raining fire on their enemies, literally. There is nothing more they love than seeing their targets burn.
Fighting both these Warbands also gives unique rewards. Taking down Blood Hunters will grant players Stinging Blade Rune while defeating Flesh Burners will provide The Black Arrow Rune.
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is set to be released on 30th September for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One with the PC version releasing on 2nd October.
