Middle-earth: Shadow of War receives substantial updateBy Ryan Noik 18 July 2018 | Categories: news
A new, and free game update for Middle-earth: Shadow of War, has been released, bringing a host of improvements to the title. Headlining these changes is the inclusion of a richer campaign experience, streamlined post-game Epilogue, new player skins and Legendary gear.
More specifically, the update includes a complete removal of the market and microtransactions from the title. Orcs recruited through Online Vendettas and Ranked Conquests will now be stored in the Garrison, and in-game Mirian can now be used to train, upgrade and customise your personal Orc army.
Changes have also been made to the Shadow Wars, now renamed the Epilogue. The post-campaign has been streamlined to include new narration from Shelob, the Witch-king and Dark Talion. Victory in the Epilogue rewards players with the Masks of the Nazgûl, unlocks powerful new abilities to raise the dead, curse enemies and summons more powerful monsters. And players also have the option to continue upgrading and defending their fortresses and army in Mordor after the final credits have rolled.
Furthermore, the new update offers players more ways to customise and build their character. As well, the follower level cap has now been increased to 80 and the enemy Captain level cap has been increased to 85. Plus, players can level up faster with greater XP rewards for Nemesis Missions, defeating Captains and Online Conquests. New Prestige Skills are available and offer incremental upgrades to skills. Players can also spend Mirian to upgrade gear to current levels by completing the upgrade challenge, and these gear upgrades now allow players to re-roll abilities for the perfect combo.
Last, but not least, players can don new skins, including Celebrimbor, reliving the first War for Mordor, or battle as Dark Eltariel and Baranor. For the full list of the extensive changes being brought by the update, you can also visit https://community.wbgames.com/t5/Support/bd-p/SOWSupport.
