Lord of the Hunt is the first DLC expansion for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and today Monolith Productions have detailed its contents.
The DLC will bring in a new story that will see Talion teaming up with Torvin, the Dwarf Hunter. Together they will venture forth to defeat a new brand of evil – the Beastmaster Warchiefs. This new enemy charges into battle while riding Caragors and can also lead a pack of Ghuls.
The developer notes that defeating this new brand of enemy will not be easy and players will have to come up with new strategies to take down the Warchiefs which will be their most powerful foe yet.
The DLC will also add new challenges and collectibles to find that will earn you achievements and trophies. There’s also a new character skin that will transform Talion into the “ultimate Beastmaster.”
