Middle-earth: Shadow of War – The Blade of Galadriel Story
If you’re looking to put a new spin on a winning formula, you probably don’t want to leave out your secret ingredient. Monolith does deserve credit for trying to make the Blade of Galadriel DLC feel like something other than just more of the same Shadow of War gameplay, but wielding Galadriel’s Light can’t hold a candle to the domination and Nemesis systems it sidelines.
Blade of Galadriel picks up after the third act, with Eltariel recovering Celebrimbor’s ring on the tower at Barad-dur and heading off to fight the remaining Nazgul on behalf of Galadriel. She’s still as bland a character as you’d expect a female elf version of Talion to be, so don’t expect any big twists, turns, or character moments from her. What few interesting moments there are come from brief appearances by Talion, though they serve only to repeat things we’ve already seen in slightly greater detail and, of course, to retread more lines from characters from the movies and books.
The Blade of Galadriel Story Expansion includes:
• NEW Story campaign
• NEW Orc Allies & Side Missions
• NEW Boss fights against the Ringwraiths and Dark Talion
• NEW Light wielding Combat
• NEW Legendary Gear Set for Eltariel
Play as Eltariel, the Blade of Galadriel, as she hunts the newest Ringwraith. Her epic story begins on the tower of Barad-dûr after the battle with Sauron and takes her across Mordor.
Eltariel enters battle with a new dual wield combat style, new powers based on the Light of Galadriel and the ability to wield the New Ring.
