Another new batch of DLC has landed for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor today, bringing with it a new Challenge Mode and Epic Rune, and – excitingly – the ability to play the game as a woman.
The Power of Defiance bundle brings with it a new character skin – Lithariel, the daughter of Lady Marwen, Queen of Nurn. In her own right, she’s also the Warrior Commander of the Tribesmen of Nurn, leading the charge against the Dark Lord Sauron and his troops, as it happens. (We’re hoping it changes Talion’s voice, too!)
The new gameplay mode – Test of Defiance – gives you the opportunity to take on Warchiefs without being able to use your Wraith powers or revive yourself. If you’d prefer to rely heavily on your abilities, the new Epic Rune – Defiant to the End – will give you an additional Last Chance to return to combat.
