  • Middle-earth: Shadow of War Definitive Edition Announced

    As usual, it pays to wait for some games. This time the wait paid off for those who held off on picking up Middle-earth: Shadow of War because a new Definitive Edition was announced today. As you may already figure, this release will include the base game plus all of the released DLC, updates, and improvements that have come to the game since its initial launch.

    Middle-earth: Shadow of War Definitive Edition is planned to be released on August 28 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Not only will you get all of that content, but you also get the game at a point after the failed loot box experiment and with a slightly less garbage post-game section.

    Middle-earth: Shadow of War Definitive Edition will feature the main game, along with the full Expansion Pass, including additional story campaigns, missions, playable characters, Orc tribes, weapons, abilities, enemies, a new region and much more.

    • Middle-earth: Shadow of War Main Game
    • Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion
    • Outlaw Tribe Nemesis Expansion
    • Blade of Galadriel Story Expansion
    • Desolation of Mordor Story Expansion

    Additionally, Middle-earth: Shadow of War Definitive Edition will bring together a multitude of different enhancements and free content updates, from a richer campaign experience and streamlined post-game Epilogue to new player skins and the complete removal of the market, in addition to hundreds of other improvements since the release of Middle-earth: Shadow of War. A snapshot of the updates available for players includes:

    • Market Closure: Complete removal of the market and microtransactions.
