Middle Earth: Shadow of War Slaughter Tribe Expansion, New Update Out Now
Endless Siege and Rebellion modes also added to the game as free new content.
Monolith Productions’ Middle Earth: Shadow of War has received its first major DLC with the Slaughter Tribe. This allows players to deal with the eponymous Slaughter Tribe whose vicious nature finally graces the lands of Mordor (and assorted areas).
A new update is also out for the game which fixes a number of issues including one where players encountered an infinite loading screen; several instances of Talion clipping and getting stuck within certain objects; issues where Talion would outright fall through the environment; and so on. A nice new change is Followers no longer dying from bleeding out if they happen to be on a fortress wall that’s destroyed. Instead, they’ll be teleported to the ground.
Middle Earth: Shadow of War will be receiving even more updates and DLC in the future. The next big paid DLC is the Outlaw Tribe which arrives in December while the first story expansion Blade of Galadriel is out in February 2018.
