on October 21, 2014 10:49 AM

Since its release late last month, players have been branding, slicing, dicing, and climbing their way up the ladder of the Uruk-hai chain of command in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and now the adventures in Middle-earth continue with new DLC that lets you take things to the dark side.

The new DLC, titled “Power of Shadow, will be a free add-on to Shadow of Mordor that adds a variety of new content, most notably the chance to play as “the Black Hand,” the villainous cohort of Sauron – the content however only lets you take on the role of the Black Hand in appearance as a skin, rather than an entirely new character. In addition to the Black Hand skin, “The Power of Shadow” DLC will also contain several new epic runes to collect and add on to Talion’s various weapons.

“Power of Shadow” is available now on Xbox One as a free DLC add-on, with the content also coming to PS4 and PC in the near future.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with versions for PS3 and Xbox 360 slated to release on November 18th, 2014.
