Middle Earth: Shadow of War Blade of Galadriel DLC trailer shows opening cinematic

Blade of Galadriel is the first major story DLC for Middle of Earth: Shadow of War and a new trailer shows off the opening cinematic.

The DLC will have a mini-campaign and be focused on a female elf assassin called Alteriel. She’s been sent by Galadriel to learn more about Shadow of War protagonist, Talion.

The cinematic opens graphically with a bitter struggle, but then shows off an interesting meeting between Galadriel and Alteriel.

Obvious spoilers for Shadow of War follow, but if you’ve already beaten the campaign, see the trailer below to get you pumped up for the DLC. A release date has yet to be confirmed.


You can even go one step further and watch the live stream where the development team discuss the DLC in more detail. Again, major spoilers for Shadow of War follow so you probably shouldn’t watch that unless you’ve beaten the game.
