A free Power of Shadow bundle for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is available from today on Xbox One. The update contains a skin which allows you to don the appearance of the Black Hand of Sauron himself.

The bundle also contains three new Epic Runes of Power:

One with Nature – Immunity to Poison attacks from Uruk Captains or Ghuls.
Ascendant – Double Focus Time for slow motion Ranged combat.
Elven Grace – Increased defense which halves the damage of enemy strikes.

The update will be made available “soon” for PlayStation 4 and Steam users.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is available now for current-gen and PC and will release on November 18 for PS3 and Xbox 360.
