Middle-earth: Shadow of War got its Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion pack. The pack brings the Slaughter tribe, new missions, a new fortress theme and more. Additional free updates are part of the not-so-free portion of the content.

Warner Bros. just released the new Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion for their Middle-earth: Shadow of War. The expansion brought  "the gruesome and bloodthirsty Slaughter tribe to Mordor with their own unique weapons, fighting style, added missions, fierce battles, a new fortress theme and more" says the press release. All this is, of course, "brought to life through the Nemesis System.

The Slaughter Tribe Nemesis includes:

  • Tribal Showdowns - These new missions will let the players "face down Captains from the Slaughter tribe"
  • Tribal War Bands - "Aid your ally and defeat your nemesis when facing off in the new Tribal War Bands quests as Captains from the Slaughter tribe bring their own forces to clash in battle."
  • New Fortress Theme - "Fortresses can now be commanded by and embody the characteristics of the Slaughter tribe, including themed monuments, outposts and Overlord throne room."

A number of free content updates and features are also available today for all Middle-earth: Shadow of War owners, and those include:

  • Enhanced Photo Mode - You know what this is: a bunch of new new filters, frames and textures.
