Middle Earth: Shadow of War will come with a DLC called “Forthog Orc Slayer”, which includes a legendary character who can help the player in times of need.
This DLC pack is dedicated to the late Michael “Forthog” Forgey, who was Monolith’s Executive Producer until his untimely passing in 2016. As a memorial to “Forthog”, Monolith decided to showcase parts of his character in Shadow of War, acting as a potential savior for the player in times of great need, emulating what he did for the studio while he worked there.
A legend among the Orcs of Mordor, Forthog Orc Slayer is an unstoppable warrior who saves Mordor’s mightiest heroes at their moment of greatest need.
Mike “Forthog” Forgey was our Executive Producer and great friend here at Monolith. He was always ready to leap into the fray and save the game whenever and wherever he was most needed. We lost Mike to cancer during the development of Shadow of War, and we want to remember and honor him with a little bit of immortality in Mordor. The legendary Forthog Orc Slayer is our way to continue having Mike leap into battle and save us when we’re down.
We hope that you will share in the experience of being saved by the legendary Forthog Orc Slayer as you enter the land of shadow.
