Monolith Productions' dark Lord of the Rings prequel story, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, will be getting a "Game of the Year Edition" re-release next week, publisher Warner Bros. announced today.

Launching for $49.99 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on May 5, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Game of the Year Edition will feature all the currently available downloadable content for the game packed in. This includes the Lord of the Hunt add-on, the Bright Lord campaign and a bevy of bonus missions, skins and equippable runes.

Though Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor was released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 following the initial new-gen launch, it appears that the Game of the Year Edition will not make its way to those platforms.

Does Shadow of Mordor deserve the "Game of the Year" moniker? Well, it took the number four slot in Polygon's staff-wide game of the year list last year, which you can read all about here.
