The Blade of Galadriel story DLC for Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is now out. Well, according to the post on the Shadow of War forum, you'll get to play as Eltariel for the first time and fight the Nazgul. That downloadable content (DLC), Blade of Galadriel, shifts the focus away from Talion and Celebrimbor towards a new character, Eltariel.

Here is Warner's official overview of the expansion, spoilers included: "Play as Eltariel, the Blade of Galadriel, as she hunts the newest Ringwraith".

"Encounter memorable new Nemesis characters, such as Flint, Tinder and the Slayer of the Dead, while battling the Nazgûl and learning more mysteries of their past", says Warner Bros of Blade of Galadriel. You'll be mastering "deadly new combat abilities, skills, and gear".

Tunnel Rat - Orcs can burrow into the ground and summon Ghûls. Archers can fire sniper shots from a great distance.

Tremor - Ologs can pound the earth with tremendous force, staggering nearby threats and heavily damaging structures.

Player Skins - Choose to appear as Talion or Eltariel in the main story campaign.

Elsewhere, the free update includes an expanded Photo Mode - adding new filters, frames, styles, adjustable expressions, and stickers - plus new Talion or Eltariel players skins for use in the main story campaign.

Finally, Shadow of War patch 10 lets you track various stats (betrayals, dominations, and kills among others) via a new in-game menu, plus affording players more ways to customise the user interface and scale their field of view. Those who own Middle-earth: Shadow of War's expansion pass can download Blade of Galadriel for free, and those who don't can buy it à la carte for $14.99. The $39.99 expansion pass also grants access to two previously released orc tribe expansions and the upcoming Desolation of Mordor story expansion which is scheduled to arrive sometime in May 2018.
