Monolith Productions have announced the details of their Season Pass for Shadow of Mordor, which is accompanied by a brand new shiny trailer. The Season Pass retails for £19.99 and contains a whole host of challenges and story based missions. Most notably is the “Bright Lord’ story mission where you get to play as the great Elven King Celebrimbor in a showdown with the evil dark lord Sauron himself. Lord of the Rings fans may have just wet their pants at that news.
