Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War Is Adding A Lot Of Free Stuff Soon

Shadow Of War

New content is coming to Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War in the next few weeks that will add some great new FREE things for Shadow Of War

If you are one of those thrifty gamers out there who picked up Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War without the Expansion Pass but were hoping to get a bit more out of the game than just the core stuff, then you are in luck as you now have a whole lot of free updates coming to you in the coming weeks. Some not all to huge, but some add a bit more to the game as Monolith Productions has a few new game modes mixed in for it all. Not locked to specific systems either so it does not matter where you are playing Shadow Of War currently. Is that not nice of them? Of course, it is and also a great way to keep you glued to your PS4, Xbox One, and PC to keep playing the game. Like this is a business or something.

Anyways, starting on November 21st, there will be some new and free updates for Shadow Of War coming your way as we will be getting an Endless Siege mode, which sounds like a horde mode of sorts that we know from many other titles. Only this time it will be waves of Sauron's army rushing us. There will also be a Rebellion mode that sounds pretty generic as it will have us crushing rebel Ologs and Uruks trying to end our reign. Also, an Enhanced Photo Mode will be dropping on the same date for Shadow Of War so we can capture more of the fun and share it out there with our friends. That way we can get even more in on it all and join the war.

Then we have a slight lull as we have to wait until December 5th to get the next free update with Online Fighting Pits that brings a 1V1 online fight to earn rewards and upgrades for everything. After that on the 12th we will see a new difficulty mode for Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War with Brutal Difficulty. This new mode will be harder than Nemesis in terms of combat and other numbers based things, but it will also remove the "Last Chance" part of the game, which will definitely lead to more deaths and thrown controllers after getting overwhelmed. Not a bad little spread of DLC coming to us for free here and there is a promise of more after all of that.
