Guardians of Middle-earth Announces New DLC Character - Barrow-wight Lord

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Monolith Productions today announce a new Guardian addition to Guardians of Middle-earth with Barrow-wight Lord, who will be available for download on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network.

Twisted by corruption even in death, the Barrow-wight Lord is a powerful remnant of a stalwart line of Men, banished to the Barrow-downs. While living, his power was great, but in death he bears greater power with little resemblance to his original human form.

Barrow-wight Lord joins the epic character roster in Guardians of Middle-earth, with Season Pass holders having free access to him as the last Guardian as part of the pass; additional purchasable content is set to be released as well.

WBIE and Monolith also released new character art, bio, ability details and a new video about playing as Barrow-wight Lord, whose abilities include draining the soul, where he steals life from a single target.

[Guardians of Middle-earth Announces New Mode and Map Skin]

We have news to reveal from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Monolith Productions: Guardians of Middle-earth will deliver a brand new Survival Mode!  

The new Survival Mode enlists a one to five player co-op in intense combat in the Glittering Caves nestled deep in the White Mountains. Teammates must rely heavily on each other to fight and survive waves of enemies with increasingly destructive power. Players must defend their towers, fight enemy control on the field and defeat boss waves to complete new challenges. Rally your best troops in a mission to perfect team composition, strategy and loadouts, while taking on a deadly swarm of enemies.

In addition, gamers can play on the one-lane map with the new Goblin-town map skin, which lands players into the dark tunnels within the Misty Mountains, near the dwelling of the Witch-king.
