Today, Warner Bros. Interactive released the latest free content update for Middle-earth: Shadow of War called Online Fight Pits. Online Fight Pits allows players to train up their Orc followers by pitting them against Uruks and Ologs from other gamers' armies around the world.

However, there's an added benefit to participating in Online Pit Fights. According to Warner Bros. Interactive, through this ultimate fight to the death in the arena, players can earn powerful rewards and upgrades that can be used to improve their army and continue the battle for Mordor.

The Online Fight Pits free update is available today for all Middle-earth: Shadow of War owners. You don't have to own the season pass to experience this content. It's great to see that Warner Bros. and Monolith are adding free content because it gives even those who own the base game a reason to come back for more.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It's an open world action role-playing game that continues the original narrative of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Players forge a new Ring of Power and take on the Dark Lord Sauron in Mordor. The game is currently available on Xbox One, Windows PC, and PlayStation 4 for $59.99. The title also supports Xbox One X by increasing the resolution to native 4K and offering higher quality assets.
