Middle-earth: Shadow of War is now certainly not the same game it was when it released back in 2017, with the developer Monolith Productions recently removing all of the controversial microtransaction systems and overhauling the end game content. Possibly aiming to give the game a fresh start, Warner Bros. Interactive announced today a new Definitive Edition of the open-world game.
The new version will come with the base game containing all the improvements that have arrived to it since the release, as well as the complete expansion pass. Adding on new story campaigns to experience with new playable characters, as well as new orc tribes, weapons, and more, the expansion pass includes the Slaughter Tribe and Outlaw Tribe Nemesis expansions, and the Blade of Galadriel and Desolation of Mordor story expansions.
Regarding the new Definitive Edition, Monolith Productions Vice President Michael de Plater said in the press release that "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"
Middle-earth: Shadow of War Definitive Edition will cost $59.99 and is slated for launch on August 2018 for PC via Steam and Windows 10, the Xbox One family of consoles, as well as the PlayStation 4 and the Pro.
