Monolith and Warner Bros new third-person orc slaying adventure received some free DLC today.

Warner Bros has announced that a free new content pack for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is available to download on Xbox One. PlayStation 4 and PC versions will be available 'soon'.

Called the 'Power of Shadow', the bundle offers up a new skin  for protagonist Talion, allowing players to assume the guise of the Black Hand, Sauron's servant. There are also three new epic runes included.

Here's what's in the pack:

  • Play as the Black Hand of Sauron
  • Epic Runes including:

One with Nature – Immunity to Poison attacks from Uruk Captains or Ghuls.

Ascendant – Double Focus Time for slow motion ranged combat.

Elven Grace – Increased defence which halves the damage of enemy strikes.

A free photo mode was added to the game last week, which allows players to pause the game at any moment during play to capture images, using different tools to tweak and perfect their shots.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor was released on Xbox One, PS4, and PC last month, and is due to be released on PS3 and Xbox 360 on 18th November in the US, and 21st November in Europe.
