MESWMithrilIconMoria Silver Edition!

Warner Bros. announces multiple platforms, Expansion Packs and Collectors Editions available for Middle-earth: Shadow of War, but none of them can surpass the Mithril Edition!

“Mithril! All folk desired it. Its beauty was like to that of common silver, but the beauty of mithril did not tarnish or grow dim.”  Tolkien

It looks like Warner Bros. is creating an edition of Middle-earth: Shadow of War for everyone from the casual gamer to die-hard Shadow of Mordor fans willing to shell out big bucks for a deluxe game edition!

Lets begin with the platforms on which Shadow of War can be played.  The game will be available on Xbox One, Project Scorpio, Windows 10 PC, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro, as well being an Xbox Play Anywhere title.


The gameplay has also expended the innovative Nemesis System. The WB Games press release states the Nemesis System is now applied to the entire world through all environments and characters, creating a personal world unique to every gameplay experience. That sounds like a tall order! The new system also promises an expanded world gameplay experience through the Nemesis Fortresses, which allows players to utilize different strategies to conquer dynamic strongholds and create personalized worlds with their unique Orc army. WOW!

Now on to the many editions of the game. Middle-earth: Shadow of War is being released as four different versions: standard, silver, gold and mithril. If you pre-order the standard version, you also receive a legendary Champions War Part and exclusive epic Sword of Dominion. (Not sure what those are yet)


The silver edition also comes with the Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion, Outlaw Tribe Nemesis Expansion and a Silver War Chest, all of which is said to be worth $90. Those Nemesis expansions include a new Orc Tribe featuring new enemies, followers, missions, abilities, weapons, Fortress and wilderness updates, and a Mythic Gear Set.

The gold edition adds to the silver edition, also delivering The Blade of Galadriel Story Expansion, The Desolation of Mordor Story Expansion and a Gold War Chest instead of a silver one, all of which is said to be worth more than $125. The story expansions introduce a new campaign, playable character and abilities, side missions, enemies, allies and more.

Finally, the mithril edition gives you the silver and gold goods along with a limited edition 15-inch Tar-Goroth Balrog vs. Carnan Drake statue (and just who is Carnan Drake? Hmmm!), collection of exclusive lithographs, premium case with magnetic Ring of Power, exclusive steelcase, official game music soundtrack, cloth Map of Mordor, Tribes sticker pack and both gold and mithril war chests. WBIE says this is all worth more than $350. Currently this edition is only available at GameStop and is retailing for US $299.99.

    That statue looks cool (we going to see those two duking it in the game? I hope so), but $300 for all that? Might be better to do an edition that has the game, all the DLC, and just the statue.
