Now available for purchase, Middle-earth: Shadow of War‘s Desolation of Mordor DLC brings players the story about Baranor, the Captain of Mins Ithil in the Eastern desert of Lithlad.

The DLC lets you tackle the were-wyrms beneath the sands, conquer the Marauder fortress of Shindrâm through new tools and abilities, and deliver a message back to Sauron and his armies that you aren’t to be dealt with.

You play as Baranor and he is very mortal and somewhat squishy, so dying isn’t exactly an option paired with positive consequences. Lithlad has its unique dangers that slither under your toes, but also harbors unique and lost Númenórean artifacts. Deslation of Mordor‘s dangers might be too much for the new protagonist of this DLC story, but with a little help from the lost artifacts, he can let them be used for battle once again and conquer against the imposing forces.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is the sequel to 2014’s Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and it received a positive review here at DualShockers. The Desolation of Mordor DLC isn’t the only add-on that has been added to the story for Shadow of War. The Blade of Galadriel DLC was released before this as Shadow of War‘s first story expansion, in case you missed it between there and here.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One platforms and is required to play the Desolation of Mordor expansion. If you are unsure about what the new story DLC is about and wish to know more, then watch the new trailer down below.
