This is awesome, free dlc for a great game.
Looking forward to getting this game but I think I'm gonna wait until the GOTY version comes out.
@raWfodog Financially smart :) , but as a gamer that is SOOOO DUMB…The game is AWESOME…go get it NOW!!!!
@uptownsoul :) I know, I tempted because this game had my interest since the first in-depth gameplay video eight months ago. Even more so since everyone is giving it great praise. But I just know that the GOTY version will have all the released DLC included and I'll have plenty to keep me busy until then. My wallet (and wife) will definitely thank me :)
Just throwing it out there but games don't always release later a ultimate or GOTY edition with all the DLC. It hasn't happened with AC3 that I'm aware of and hasn't happened with AC4, unfortunately : (
@Antoine That's true but I usually have good instincts when it comes to sniffing out a possible GOTY version. And if it doesn't happen then I can still get a great game at an even cheaper price.
@Antoine All of those AC games though were published by Ubi. Shadow of Mordor is a WB game. Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are also WB games and they both have GOTY editions. Even Arkham Origins is rumored to have a GOTY edition. Judging by WB's past history I think it's fairly certain that WB will release a GOTY edition of SoM.
It might not happen. I think publishers are starting to learn that allowing the game to become cheap over time allows them to get more people in and thus more people buying always expensive DLC.
bundlestars has it for 33% discount for limited time.
Sweet... DLing this later... Nerdstradamus Predicts: The sequel to Mordor will be an always online version where you can play as Humans or Uruks... skill development, political movements up and down, and siege/base takeovers. Develop your characters and climb the ranks while fighting/spying/sabotaging other actual players.
That's great. Will it also be free on PS4?
yes it will but later just like the pc version
Thanks for the info.
NICE. It is always wonderful for a developer to send a "thank you" to those who purchased their game...
It Just keeps getting better with this DLC. Destiny can learn a thing or two from this game.
A nice tactic to get more people to buy the Xbone version.
It's coming to all platforms. Xbox gets it first.
Such a great game.
Those epic runes are already in the game, you just have to find them. Does this mean you will just automatically get them from the start? I'm not sure if I like that. Being immune to poison and taking half damage right from the start of the game would make combat way too easy. Don't get me wrong, I love the game. I've already 100% it twice. I just don't think that starting off with some of the very best runes is good for the feeling of progression.
I just have to say I love being surprised by a game. I had low to medium expectations for Shadow of Mordor and it has turned out to be one of the best games I have played in quite a while. Everything is well done and polished top to bottom. It can seem a bit repetitive at times but when one of those SOB orcs kills you, especially if he gets you more than once, boy do you really want to hunt his ass down and make him suffer. And, dying has actual consequences. It all makes for one hell of a good game. Best game I've played this generation so far.
why they release this on xbo first lol...didnt they learn already...that crap isnt selling...release this where the most install base seriously lol ms are sooooooooo desperate
Bwahahahaha... hahahah good one dude. Paying for free content LOL. Could it be.. hear me out now.. that maybe it just happened to be ready on XB1 first? Might be that the team is still fine tuning the PS4 and PC versions. Happens from time to time. Though I know fanboy conspiracy theories usually rule this site.
I thought SoM aligned with Sony, why is this on X1 first? Unusual to switch like that. Oh well, nice that it's free, excellent game.
I already have these Epic Runes, I wonder if they stack though.
It's available on ps4 right now.
This game is how current gen games should be made. Awesome from the getgo. No crazy hype trains but it still sold itself off of its own merrits. Great storyline. Hours worth of entertaining and non-repetative content. Best part is they didn't even cut anything out of the game to make dlc especially seeing as they're still releasing MORE free stuff. Ubisoft, Bungie, Activision. Sit down and take notes son.
