'Middle-earth: Shadow of War' (ALL) Losses Functionality As Servers Shut Down

by Rainier on Jan. 16, 2021 @ 10:08 a.m. PST

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is a third-person action game set in Middle-earth that explores an original story of vengeance and redemption.

In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, gamers take on the role of Talion, a valiant ranger whose family is slain in front of him the night Sauron and his army return to Mordor, moments before his own life is taken. Resurrected by a Spirit of vengeance and empowered with Wraith abilities, Talion ventures into Mordor and vows to destroy those who have wronged him.  Through the course of his personal vendetta, Talion uncovers the truth of the Spirit that compels him, learns the origins of the Rings of Power and ultimately confronts his true nemesis.

Every enemy that players face is a unique individual, differentiated by their personality, strengths and weaknesses. Through the Nemesis System, enemy relationships and characteristics are shaped by player actions and decisions to create personal archenemies that remember and adapt to the player and are distinct to every gameplay session. Gamers are able to craft their own battles, enemies and rewards within the dynamic world that remembers and adapts to their choices, delivering a unique experience to every player.

Warner Bros. is shutting down its servers for Middle-earth: Shadow of War, cutting off certain functionality to the 2014 game.

Due to changes with our network, access to certain features for the Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor videogame on PS4, Xbox One and Steam will no longer be available beginning Jan. 12.

  • The Nemesis Forge feature is no longer available.
  • Vendetta missions are no longer available, but the “Repaid in Blood” achievement/trophy can still be unlocked.
  • Leaderboards are no longer connected to other users and only show the player’s score, but “The Hunt is My Mistress” and “Lord of the Ring” achievements/trophies can still be unlocked.
  • The WBPlay platform is no longer available, but the Epic Runes “Orc Hunter” and “Gravewalker” upgrades are now automatically awarded to all players.
