Free Scorpio version if you buy digitally.
Hmmm... is this the first indication then that there will be separate SKUs for Scorpio games vs XBox One? Initially, my thought was that it would work like PS4 Pro, where it's just a different version of the same game, just with higher res textures, higher frame rate, etc...

Shadow of Mordor was the second game I played on my PS4 after AC Unity. I personally loved it. But I also love Assassin's Creed / Arkham series so this was my cup of tea. Did it get repetitive? Sure....but it was pretty fun.

Gold Edition up on the PSN Store for $130.00 CAD. I get season passes are the norm but a $50 season pass? Did WB learn nothing with the pathetic Arkham Knight DLC package?

16 minute gameplay reveal. Only had time to skim a bit but it looks pretty cool

No sperate SKU. Phil Spencer already commented that this just means work was done to optimize for Scorpio.

Ah ok, their write-up was a bit awkward, but I assume it's written that way to squeeze in a mention of Project Scorpio in there alongside "no additional cost"
As an Xbox Play Anywhere title, if you purchase a digital version of Middle-earth: Shadow of War on either the Xbox Store or Windows Store, you will automatically have access to the game on both Xbox One and Windows 10 at launch – and for Project Scorpio at its launch this holiday season – at no additional cost.

Looks like MS is a marketing partner for this title.

I never got how "collector's box" was actually worth anything. AND it doesn't even include the season pass.

It's WB, what can you expect? My only positive Collector's Edition from them was Arkham Knight.
