Middle-earth: Shadow of War gets a Definitive Edition

All DLC included in new version of the fantasy adventure.

Do you feel like nowadays it's better to buy a game a year or so after launch because you get much more content for a lower price, when all you have to do is just have a little patience? Well, this news from Warner Bros. isn't gonna convince you otherwise.

Warner Bros. has announced that Middle-earth: Shadow of War (released back in October 2017) is getting a Definitive Edition. This new version comes with all the DLC and free updates that have released since the game's launch. The Definitive Edition will be available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on August 28, 2018.

Expansions included are Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion, Outlaw Tribe Nemesis Expansion, Blade of Galadriel Story Expansion, and a Desolation of Mordor Story Expansion. A list of other included updates can be read below the image.

Earlier this year Monolith and Warner Bros. decided to remove all microtransactions from the game, and that is of course true for Definitive Edition as well, and you can read our review of the game here if you'd like to know more.
