Developer Monolith Will Remove Microtransactions From Shadow of War

Middle-earth: Shadow of War developer Monolith has decided to totally remove microtranscations from the game. For the time being, Shadow of War enables players purchase Orcs using real money, allowing them bypass the system entirely, but that is about to change.

The studio claims the monetization method compromises the core promise of the Nemisis System, which allows players to build personal relationships with enemies and allies through dynamic, ever-evolving encounters.

While purchasing Orcs in the Market is more immediate and provides additional player options, we have come to realize that providing this choice risked undermining the heart of our game, the Nemesis System,” reads the post. It allows you to miss out on the awesome player stories you would have otherwise created, and it compromises those same stories even if you don’t buy anything.

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.

Starting May 8, gold will no longer be purchasable and players will have about a month to exchange real world money for in-game cash. The in-game marketplace will remain open till July 17, at which point it will be closed permanently. If players have unused Gold by the end of the time allotted to spend it, any remaining Gold will be converted to in-game items.
