Most people will want to jump right into lớn the new “Shadow of Death” chiến dịch, but it’s something of a mixed bag. While it integrates all of the new features mentioned above sầu, its disjointed narrative và, more problematic, wildly varying difficulty levels make it a bit more tedious than past campaigns in the series.
