The dark side of the Lord of the Rings universe will soon come home in Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, and with it comes the announcement of a season pass for all of those wishing to experiencing everything the game has to offer. For those not familiar with the concept of a season pass, they pretty much work like this: you pay a certain sum upfront for the right to be able to download any DLC that may come out down the line for no add.
This particular season pass will give players access to a variety of additional content including new skins, powers, and missions sure to please when the game comes out later this year. For a closer look at everything you’ll get in this package, focus your eyeballs on the list below.
Exclusive ‘Guardians of the Flaming Eye’ Orc Warband mission: Fight against Sauron’s most elite warriors at the Blackgate for the right to use the Rising Flame Rune.
Early Access to Trials of War Challenge Series: Fight against evil and post your best score to the internet to compete with gamers across the globe.
New Story Mode Missions: Lord of the Hunt, in which you battle against some of Middle-Earth’s most fearsome beasts, and The Bright Lord, where you play as the legendary elven smith Celebrimbor and battle Sauron and his armies.
As previously mentioned, players will also have access to future DLC as well.
In Shadow of Mordor, you play as Talion, a ranger of Black Gate brought back from the dead as a spirit of vengeance. Now a vengeful wraith, Talion must seek to not only fulfill his own personal vendettas, as supported by the in-game Nemesis System which allows any enemy to become a potential target based on the player’s action, but also unravel the mystery behind the Rings of Power as well.
