Shadow of Mordor is one of the best games I played this year. I had high hopes for Lord of the Hunt, its first major expansion, as a result. “New monsters!” I thought. “More nemesis orcs to fight, some of whom ride on top of the new monsters! What could possibly go wrong?” So many things, apparently.
Shadow of Mordor got its first major DLC instalment today, Lord of the Hunt. As the name suggests, the expansion is all about monsters — ones you can kill or bend to your will in various ways. Let’s take a closer look at some of these gnarly new beasts.
Briefly: The first major DLC expansion for Shadow of Mordorcomes out today, Warner Bros just announced. It’s called Lord of the Hunt, and brings some gnarly new monsters into the mix. The DLC costs $US9.99, and comes free with the $US24.99 season pass. Watch the new trailer above; I’ll have more detailed impressions by tomorrow.

Ever since Shadow of Mordorcame out, many gamers have taken to its unique brand of orc-killing with a gusto. There’s just one problem: some of these orcs keep coming back from the dead. And while developer Monolith says this is partly an intentional feature, they haven’t given me a straight answer for how it works.
Say you love a popular fantasy or science fiction series. Then say your significant other doesn’t love that same series. Do you just accept your differences and go about your lives? That’s one way to do it. Here’s another.
Sauron’s entire high command, all going after a single warchief at once. He never stands a chance.
Video: Confused why Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor left “Lord of the Rings” out of its name? Well, lead designer Bob Roberts just explained to Eurogamer that the omission was a deliberate choice to make sure the game was seen as “clearly its own thing” by keeping it “separate” from established LOTR franchises. Mystery solved!
