Middle-Earth: Shadow of War No Longer Has Microtransactions

Middle-earth: Shadow of War was caught up in a controversy involving microtransactions previously and few months ago, Warner Bros. Interactive said the company would remove microtransactions out of the game.

Microtransactions have always been a cause for concern for most players and Warner Bros. and Monolith Productions have fixed the problem by removing the in-game marketplace from the game entirely. The loot crates in the game provide players access to powerful orcs that could be utilised to form their armies without spending too much effort on grinding. Microtransactions isn’t necessary, but that option is always there and it is a simple way to become strong in the game when players are willing to spend. After the update, Orcs recruited through Vendettas and Ranked Conquests will be stored in the Garrison, and in-game Mirian can now be used to train, upgrade and customize the Orc army.

Simply being aware that they are available for purchase reduces the immersion in the world and takes away from the challenge of building your personal army and your fortresses. In order to fully restore the core promise of the Nemesis System, we’ll be permanently removing Gold, War Chests and the Market from Shadow of War.

In addition to removing the marketplace, developer Monolith Productions added a number of new features intended to provide a better end-game experience and promises a richer campaign, streamlined post-game Epilogue, as well as new gear and skins. The follower level cap has been increased to 80, the enemy Captain level cap has beem increased to 85, and greater XP rewards.
