Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor’s latest DLC enlivens the battlefield with a variety of new beasts to ride or command – but also new Uruk Warchiefs who will turn these tricks against you.


Lord of the Hunt is available now as part of the Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor season pass or as an individual DLC pack, on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Warner Bros. said the pack adds “hours” of gameplay via the following features:

  • New Story & Lore – Discover more tales from Torvin, the Dwarven Hunter, as you work together to tame the beasts of Mordor and fight Sauron’s minions.
  • New Nemeses – Face off against the Beastmaster Warchiefs, powerful new Uruks who have the ability to ride monsters and engage in perilous mounted combat.
  • New Monsters – Ride into battle on the Wretched Graug to vomit toxin at your foes, stalk your enemies on the predatory Caragath and attack from the shadows or raise an all-consuming Ghul Horde.
  • New Missions & Challenges – New Beast Hunting challenges and collectibles open up new trophies and achievements.
  • New Epic Runes – Make your Mount unstoppable with five new epic Runes that make you the ultimate hunter.
  • Test of the Wild – Test your skills against the Beastmasters and mount your trophies on the leaderboard.
  • New Character Skin – Lord of the Hunt skin transforms Talion into the ultimate Beastmaster.
