Shadow of War Orc Tribes

Which Shadow of War Edition should you get? Let’s find out!

Middle-earth: Shadow of War releases on 10th October in 3 different packages for each one of the 3 platforms – PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Available for Pre-order and later for purchase are the Standard, Silver and Gold editions. This article will give you all the information you need to make your choice – which Shadow of War version is for you!

Let’s take a look at what each one of the 3 versions has to offer.

STANDARD EDITION

If you Pre-ordered, you will get a Legendary Champions War Party and Exclusive Epic Sword of Domination.  This is the base version of the game and offers nothing as an extra in terms of additional content (DLC).

You get access to the full game as it was released, but any additional content that is added at a later point, will be unavailable to you, unless it is released for free (like the Forthog Orc-Slayer special DLS)

SILVER EDITION

If you Pre-ordered, you will get a Legendary Champions War Party and Exclusive Epic Sword of Domination. This edition contains the following bonus content:

  • Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion
  • Outlaw Tribe Nemesis Expansion
  • Silver War Chest

The first two are DLC content, containing a new Tribe with new missions, followers, enemies, abilities, weapons, Fortress and wilderness updates. Also a Mythic Gear Set. The Silver War Chest is a random loot crate, part of the microtransactions system that was implemented to the game.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

WB Games and Monolith are offering a Season Pass and its initial price is just as much as you would pay if you get the Gold Edition – $40 (+$60 for the Standard Edition, of course – total of $100). Each stand-alone DLC will be available for separate purchase too. Important to note is that at any given time you can upgrade digitally the edition of your game to a higher one – for example, if you have the Standard Edition, you can upgrade to Silver and Gold at any given time (similar to how you were able to upgrade from Shadow of Mordor to its GOTY edition).
