The nemesis system is getting repackaged, through the newly announced Middle-earth: Shadow of War Definitive Edition. Promising to be the most complete version of the game, it is set to release on August 28th, at a suggested retail price of $79.99 Canadian.
Warner’s Middle-earth: Shadow of War Definitive Edition will include the base game, all of its paid downloadable content, and each of the free updates and alterations that it has received since releasing. This includes two story expansions, a couple of bonus orc tribes, difficulty levels, player stats, online pit fights and conquests, and a more streamlined endgame. Yes, if you haven’t heard, Monolith went back and removed loot boxes from the game after all of the backlash they received, and in the process they also changed the (post credits) final act, adding new narratives in place of the cash grab siege mode.
“Since Middle-earth: Shadow of War launched, we’ve continually looked at all of the feedback from our fantastic community and our fans, which has inspired us to keep improving the game and ultimately create a version that we are truly proud of,” said Michael de Plater, Vice President, Creative, Monolith Productions. “Middle-earth: Shadow of War Definitive Edition brings together all of our free content updates and gameplay improvements, along with our Story and Nemesis Expansions, providing the very best experience for players. Whether you’re diving in for the first time or making your return to Middle-earth, there’s never been a better time to walk into Mordor.”
The Middle-earth: Shadow of War Definitive Edition will be released onto Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
