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.

Shadow of War coming out in a week. If anyone was interested Bundlestars has it for 25% off pre-order right now, $60.

Loved the original, looking forward to this.

I had fun with the original as well but the previews haven't got me excited enough to spend $60 for this at launch, especially when it's almost certainly going to be half off in a couple months just like every other WB Game.

Played about an hour yesterday. Really fun so far. Feels more like an RPG rather than a hack and slash. They've definitely made it waaaay bigger than the original, so i'm looking forward to exploring and getting more OP.

What is all of the lootbox stuff I've heard about this? Unimportant, annoying, just silly, etc? I haven't really kept up on it but people on reddit are really pissed.

I'm confused why the game would have them at all, its a singleplayer game that you pay full price for still, right? Or did they add some weird F2P stuff?
