Middle-earth: Shadow of War, the sequel to the 2014 Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, released back in October and today its first story expansion has come out. Blade of Galadriel follows Eltariel, an assassin for Galadriel who was sent to Mordor for millennia to hunt the Nazgul. With this expansion, players get their first chance to play as the assassin, wielding her dual Elven blades and the Light of Galadriel with her many new combat abilities, skills, and gear. You will encounter new Nemesis characters including Flint, Tinder, and the Slayer of the Dead while you continue the fight against the Nazgul and learn more about their past. Eight new Legendary Orcs can also be gained through this expansion and brought back to the main story campaign, along with an Eltariel character skin.

Along with the expansion you have to purchase, several free content updates have also be added to the game. The Nemesis system has gained some new traits and behaviors for orc captains: Tunnel Rat allows them to burrow into the ground and summon Ghuls; Sniper Shot enables archers to attack and great distance with pinpoint accuracy; Tremor lets Ologs strike the ground to stagger threats and heavily damage structures; and Gifts of Treasure means followers can bring players a Treasure Orc for more ways to acquire gems and Mirian. Photo Mode has gained new filters, frames, and styles as well as adjustable expressions and stickers. Training Orders to upgrade orc followers can now be given from within the Garrison. A Player States page has been added to the menu for following in-game statistics and field of view options have been added.

The Blade of Galadriel can be purchased for $14.99 and is part of the Story Expansion Pass, which costs $24.99. The second story expansion, The Desolation of Mordor, will cost $19.99 if purchased separately and is scheduled to be released in May.
