Monolith details Middle-earth: Shadow of War’s first DLC

We’re still several months away from Middle-earth: Shadow of War’s October release, but that hasn’t stopped developer Monolith from unveiling the game’s first story DLC campaign which is titled The Blade of Galadriel.

Monolith was on hand during the recent E3 PC Gaming Show to announce The Blade of Galadriel and reveal a bit of what it’s about. The DLC will focus on a female elf named Eltariel who serves the iconic elf queen Galadriel as an assassin (the titular ‘Blade of Galadriel’). You can watch a short gameplay cinematic below in which Eltariel meets the base game’s protagonists Talion and Celebrimbor. Judging from the cinematic, it appears Galadriel has dispatched Eltariel to learn more about Talion’s unique bond with Celebrimbor and aid the two in their fight against Sauron. While the cinematic doesn’t confirm as such, it is assumed that players will get to play as Eltariel in the new DLC campaign.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War was recently delayed into October. It will launch on October 10 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
