Shadow of War To Remove All Microtransactions

It's a slog. It takes quite a bit of grinding to get tough enough armies and defences to withstand the constant sieges, and then the Shadow Wars itself feels like it goes on forever.

Rendezvous with Torvin, the epic Dwarven Hunter, who journeyed deep into the Desolation of Mordor in pursuit of the legendary Were-wyrms.

Shadow of War released about six months ago, and was generally a very good game, but those pesky microtransactions wormed their way in, offering needless new ways to gather orcs for your army. Depending on your play style, a certain number of rare Orcs was required to clear the end game.

While Shadow of War still has DLC to come, it's great to see that there are going to be a few reasons to revisit it even if you don't have the season pass or aren't tempted by the expansions. According to Monolith, "The core promise of the Nemesis System is the ability to build relationships with your personal allies and enemies in a dynamic open world". "It allows you to miss out on the awesome player stories you would have otherwise created, and it compromises those same stories even if you don't buy anything". Players who have already purchased those items will have a "specific amount of time" to use them.

Any unused Gold will be converted into in-game items, and the ability to purchase the in-game currency will cease on 8th May 2018.

Not only that, the studio will also be updating the "section of the campaign, where players defend their fortresses against Sauron's repeated counter-attacks". New narrative elements will be introduced, and we're promised a more cohesive experience.

New Infinity War Footage
Warning: Spoilers and speculation for Avengers: Infinity War , Thor: Ragnarok , and Avengers 4 ahead. Still, this is the kind of tease we live for, so we'll gladly take that bait.

Please note that the above updates are free for all Shadow of War owners.

In the spring update due out on May 8th, 2018 next month, you will no longer be able to purchase virtual gold with real money. This is why, the Market, Gold, and War chests will be "permanently deleted" from the system.

These updates, the post says, are a response to player feedback and are meant to improve player experience.

When it was first released back in September 2017, Middle-earth: Shadow of War was one of a handful of games involved in a growing furore over microtransactions. Gamers can pick up where they left off on another Xbox One or Windows 10 PC, bringing all the saves, game add-ons and achievements with them at no additional cost.

The updates for Middle-Earth: Shadow of War will be available for free starting July 17th.
