Introducing the Market

[ Editado ]

Middle-earth: Shadow of War
Introducing the Market – Announcement

 

The innovative Nemesis System created unique personal stories through procedurally-generated enemies who remember every encounter and are differentiated by their personality, strengths and weaknesses. Middle-earth: Shadow of War expands this innovation with the introduction of Followers who bring about entirely new stories of loyalty, betrayal and revenge. The Nemesis System is also expanded to create a unique personal world through Nemesis fortresses, which allows players to utilize different strategies to conquer dynamic strongholds and create personalized worlds with their unique Orc army.

 

An important aspect of the Nemesis System now comes in forging, customizing and leading your own army of unique Orc Followers against the fortresses of Mordor. Players can attack and defend fortresses throughout the single player main story campaign and also attack other player’s fortresses through Online Conquests. Players can forge their army by dominating Orcs in the open world while encountering them as part of Orc society, and players can acquire Orcs and other items through the Market (in-game store).

 

Through the Market, players can purchase Loot Chests, War Chests, XP Boosts and Bundles (accessed only with an internet connection).

  • Loot Chests contain Gear (weapons and armor) of varying rarity. Equipping and upgrading these weapons and armor enhance Talion’s character abilities. Loot Chests can also contain XP Boosts that help level up Talion faster.
  • War Chests provide Orc Followers of varying rarity to help forge a strong army. They can also contain Training Orders to level up and customize Orc Followers.
  • XP Boosts are consumables that help level up Talion faster.
  • Bundles package up Loot Chests, War Chests and Boosts together at a great value.

 

To purchase these items, players can spend Mirian or Gold throughout the game as one progresses. Mirian is a type of in-game currency that can be acquired by:

 

  • Defeating Treasure Orcs
  • Destroying Gear for Mirian
  • Destroying Orc Followers for Gear (which can be destroyed for Mirian)
  • Finding Mirian stashes throughout the game

 

Gold is another form of in-game currency that can be used to get higher level Loot Chests, War Chests, Boosts and Bundles of the aforementioned content. Gold can be acquired by:

 

• Purchasing through the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store or by adding to your Steam Wallet using real money.
• Awarded in small amounts at specific milestones. 
• Awarded for participating in community challenges.

 

Please note: No content in the game is gated by Gold. All content can be acquired naturally through normal gameplay.

 

Do you need an internet connection to play the game?

  • The single player main story campaign is fully playable offline, including the Shadow Wars mode. An internet connection is only required to access the online modes, including Online Conquests and Online Vendettas, and the Market.

What is Mirian and how do I earn it?

  • Mirian is a form of in-game currency that players earn by playing the game. Along with Gold, Mirian can be used to purchase Loot Chests and War Chests from the Market. Mirian can be acquired by: 
  • Defeating Treasure Orcs
  • Destroying Gear for Mirian
  • Destroying Orc Followers for Gear (which can be destroyed for Mirian)
  • Finding Mirian stashes throughout the game

What is Gold and how do I earn it?

  • Gold is a form of in-game currency awarded in small amounts at specific milestones and for participating in community challenges. It can also be purchased for real money through the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store and by adding funds to your Steam Wallet. Along with Mirian, Gold can be used to purchase Loot Chests, War Chests and Boosts from the Market. 

What can I get with Gold?

  • Along with Mirian, players can use Gold to purchase Loot Chests that contain Gear for Talion (weapons and armor), War Chests that provide Orcs for your army of Followers and Boosts that help level up Talion faster. 

Do I have to pay for Gold?

  • No, Gold is awarded in small amounts at specific milestones and for participating in community challenges. It can also be purchased through the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store and by adding funds to your Steam Wallet using real money. Everything a player can buy with Gold can also be earned in the game over time for free, but Gold gives players the option to acquire these items immediately. No Gold purchases are necessary to enjoy the complete game experience. The main story campaign and progression have been balanced and tuned based on the player being offline. 

What do you mean when you say Gold can save time?

  • By simply engaging with the world and playing through Middle-earth: Shadow of War, you earn items like Gear for Talion and unique Orcs for your army. These are the same items that are found in the Market within Loot Chests and War Chests. Gold merely allows you to get your hands on them immediately, cutting down some of the additional time that would have been spent winning more battles, tracking nemeses, completing quests and assaulting fortresses. 

Does Gold give me an advantage in the game?

  • No, Gold does not give you any advantage over other players. A player who invests enough time can progress the same amount and have access to the same content as a player who purchases Gold. Gold is not required to progress or advance in the game at all.

What are Online Conquests and Online Vendettas?

  • Online Conquests is a new mode where player’s fortresses are shared online and other players can assault them.
  • Online Vendettas is an update to the mode from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor where players can pursue Orcs within their friend’s world in order to avenge them.
  • Both of these modes require an internet connection.

If players attack your fortresses during Online Conquests, can you lose your Orcs or fortresses?

  • While your personal fortresses and Followers are available for other players to attack in Online Conquests, your Followers are not killed or removed if your fortress is defeated. 

Are there unique items in the market purchased using Gold that you can’t get through normal play?

  • No, all of the aforementioned items can be earned playing through the game. Gold merely allows you to get your hands on them immediately.

 How much does Gold cost?

  • Prices for Gold will be communicated at a later date.

The purchase orcs

After just watching the stream, I was wondering if there is an option to "share" your favorite orcs with other players/friends, who can then purchase them in the store.

Re: The purchase orcs

There's a way to share fortresses they've said, so it's a possibility. Even if you can't though, there's always screenshots

War Chests in the future

Many people are upset with micro-transactions, but I see no problem with them AS OF RIGHT NOW. They are currently in GOOD STATE and I urge you not to change them. Do not fall for the temptation that Call of Duty fell for and ruined it's franchise with, please do not force us to spend actual money on things that we can't normally come across such as special weapon effects that don't occur in the game or things like that. I have no problem with using micro-transactions to boost through gameplay, but beware, there will likely be much backlash if you go down the road that Call of Duty set itself upon...

A question to recent stream

I have been wondering for the market can you access and buy chests without connection to the Internet if you know

Re: A question to recent stream

From what I saw it appeared to be something that you could do without internet, it was bought with miriam, something you can get and buy things with normally in game without miriam. I guess it would be comparable to if you can buy supply drops in Call of Duty: BO3 without internet. Thats just my guess tho don't quote me on any of that XD

Cost of Gold/Mithril war chest

I want to get a Mithril war chest, just want to know the price for one chest since its just Orcs and some training boost in it

 

I don't really want to spend like 20$ just to get one Mithril chest since you know

(Its just Orcs, so if they die....) Like is it even worth it?


The reason, I'm not sure about this is (It feel like its not something we get to keep permanantly beside Talion gears)

 

If the price isn't too much, I think it can be overlook but I just hope maybe there's a way to make it idk how to explain it but you know

(Something to help us feel like we get to keep it) 

----------------

I don't think anyone want to be like

 

"**bleep** I just spend like 50$ on these War Chest full of Orcs and they all die and yeah I got bunch of Gems and Gears from em but they're all gone"

Cod was not put down by micro-transactions dissatisfaction, but howrepetitive and copy paste it was. I do not support micro-transactions in AAA title, only free mmo. I don't think Game benefits from using them.

Re: Introducing the Market

So with the training orders, can we get those in-game as loot drops? Or are they only from the war chests?

Like if we killed a captain with an archer gang could he drop an archer gang training order?

Re: Introducing the Market

What will the prices of gold be? And can we just buy the chests with money and not go through buying the gold to then buy the chest?

Are the chests from the Silver-Mythril Editions reusable for each new game or are they one-time use?

Re: Introducing the Market

Will there be a feature to "share" your favorite Orcs, so that they appear in the markets place for other people / friends, who can then buy said Orcs? Perhaps even distinct between buying said Orc cosmeticly or wholly.


Personally, I think this would be a cool feature.

Re: The Game currency, latest stream question.

@MonolithJared so if you're level 10 and you got a Mithril War Chest which is suppose to be level 40+ Legendary Orcs,

So those Legendary Orcs do they come out as level 10 as well like you or how does this work if they are suppose to be the same level as you? Or do you have to be level 40+ before you can use these Orcs in your Army

Also I know you guys haven't talk about it yet but the pre-order Orcs are also all Legendary as well so how will that work as well too

I'm not sure how the level system work between Talion and the Orcs

Re: Introducing the Market

[ Editado ]

What does gold coins cost? Orcs and loot change and die all the time, so I hope it will be some value for money.

 

and Im guessing one should wait to open chests to you are at a decent lvl, since the orcs will be at your lvl?

 

Do you get chests and training stuff outside the marked?

 

Are chests reuseable in another game?

 

EDIT: **bleep**, the questions are pouring in, I see my questions allready are asked Smiley feliz
