The New DLC - The Lord of the Hunt

Hello Wikia-Users and Gravewalkers!
On Steam there is a new announcement for the DLC Lord of the Hunt:
New Features:

Lord of the Hunt DLC Support Added
Note: Lord of the Hunt requires slightly higher system specs. If you’re noticing a loss in performance, please lower system settings.
PC Specific Bug Fixes:

Stability (Crash Fixes): Fixed a crash caused when the user has multiple video adapters, and the first adapter is not DX11 compatible but the second adapter is.
Performance: Fixed issue where screen tearing was noticeable when maxFPS is set to 60 and Vsync is enabled. Vsync no longer causes the framerate to cap at 30
UI: Added option to disable FXAA and improved associated help text. When running Shadow of Mordor on a laptop, a new battery display appears over the in-game UI.
SLI: Fixed flickering on Uruk skin when SLI is enabled.
Gameplay Specific Fixes:

Fixed game state issue where Power Struggles in Udûn were no longer spawning.
Fixed scenario where access to Sauron’s Army screen is lost after completing the game.
Prevented issued caused by loading save data that was created on the base game, after patch 1.05 is installed, causing loss of functionality.
Fixed issue caused by dying then restarting Lithariel’s Challenge, which caused most Audio to no longer play.
Fixed issue where Invert Aim Game Setting in Photo Mode inverts the mouse's Camera Offset.
Runes Exploits: The player can no longer receive duplicate Epic Runes if the Captains are killed using Dispatch. Canceling a GP mission will no longer duplicate all Runes on the map.
I am really exited about this new DLC and so I hope you are ready for hunting Graugs and Caragors!

New patch released! (PC)


New Features: 
Lithariel Skin available. 
Lithariel’s Trials of War “Test of Defiance” available. (Main Objective: Kill 6 Warchiefs and 15 captains. Lithariel has only one life. Death results in failure. Lithariel does more melee damage, but has less armor. You cannot save during this challenge. Quitting results in failure.) 
New Epic rune granted to player’s inventory “Defiant to the End”. (Additional last chance given to player when equipped.)
PC Specific Features: 
Nvidia SLI support.
Bug Fixes for all platforms: 
Photo Mode: The controller drain/brand SFX persists when Photo Mode is up. Brand SFX no longer persist when pausing through photo mode during a drain or brand sequence. 
Power of Shadow: The hood of the Black Hand's cloak in the front end appears covering half his face. Eye FX issue fixed for the Black Hand skin in the front end menu. Glowing eyes effect misplaced on Black Hand's face when dismissing title screen. 
UI/VFX still show Talion as poisoned when One With Nature (Epic) Dagger Rune is equipped. 
Player can receive duplicate Epic Runes by killing multiple captains with dispatch. 
MOTD is not cycling after one rotation.
PC Specific Bug Fixes: 
Improved messaging when game fails to launch. 
Fixed issue with incorrect aspect ratio being used when changing resolution through the video options in windowed mode. 
Added an option to expose FXAA as part of the motion blur settings. 
Fixed issues with native resolution detection. The game will now use Windows “recommended” resolution. 
Fixed issues with custom resolutions specified in Windows. Users no longer have to delete them. 
Fixed in game benchmark starting too early. 
Fixed not being able to skip benchmark load screen. 
Improved benchmark output files located in “My Documents\WB Games\Shadow of Mordor\*.csv”. 
In game VSync will now use NVIDIA’s adaptive sync when turned on. It will use NVIDIA’s Control Panel settings when turned off. 
Fixed save game issue where starting new game on top of existing data didn’t clear skills purchased. 
Fixed issue with WB Play where entering age under 18 on accident prevented player from ever accessing WB Play.

I'm just thrilled with the new content. Though Lithariel has new walking animations and is a bit smaller than Talion, Celebrimbor also gets scaled down with her and keeps the feminine animations. So it looks a bit weird at first sight, but I got used to it ^^ . I wish they put in the Tower next as a skin, I love his character in the game. Also, the "Test Of Defiance" challenge mode is in the Sea of Nurn instead of Udun this time.
