Meet Middle-earth: Shadow of War's Blade of Galadriel, a Ring-Wraith hunting assassin and DLC star

Middle-earth: Shadow of War will once again star Talion and Celebrimbor, but its first DLC will let you take control of a new character with an interesting tie to the established lore: The Blade of Galadriel, an assassin sent to Mordor by the eponymous elven lady to hunt down the Nazgul and anyone corrupted by the rings of power. We first met her in a new cinematic video released last week, but now you can get to know her a bit better thanks to a new cinematic debuted at the PC Gaming Show.

Since Shadow of War starts with Talion and Celebrimbor making and losing their own ring, they have an, er, complex relationship with the assassin. We don't have a release date for The Blade of Galadriel yet, but Shadow of War is set to arrive on October 10 and we probably won't have to wait too long after that.

Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo.
