The list of free content updates for Shadow of War have been revealed by WB Games, along with the Expansion Pass content. It's described by WB as a mode in which you'll "Crush the rebel Ologs and Uruks in your forces as they seek to undermine the Bright Lord". On the same date, the first paid DLC available with the Expansion Pass also drops with the Slaughter Tribe "Nemesis World Expansion", available standalone for $14.99/£11.99 or with the Expansion Pass for $39.99/£32.99.

"Capture every battle and siege and apply new filters, frames and textures with Enhanced Photo Mode update". Online Fight Pits, a new mode that allows you to pit your Orc followers against those of another player, will be released on December 5. It features a new orc tribe, fortresses, minions, Legendary gear set, upgrade challenges, and conquest activities. But the Brutal difficulty will offer even more challenge, going as far as turning off the Last Chance mechanic.

Brutal Difficulty - A new higher difficulty level that provides a greater challenge than Nemesis. The new difficulty setting is coming on December 12, 2017. The Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion will arrive on November 21st and the Outlaw Tribe Nemesis Expansion will be released on December 12th. Then in May, the story continues with Middle-earth: Desolation of Mordor!
