It's not from Amazon direct (A reseller) but a great price with free delivery and brand new. I think I'm prepared to pay that price.

Annnndddd here comes all the loot box whiners who haven't even played the game......

I absolutely despise it when people say "I didn't need it" or "it doesn't effect the game". Of course it bloody does or they wouldn't be there. Just because it didn't impact you personally doesn't mean these kind of in game transactions are not predatory or problematic. The very idea of loot boxes in a full priced game is disgusting.

A game that’s pay to win? No thanks

It's not pay to win. You'll have fun until mid too late game where it gets grindy. Still a very good/fun game.

Heat for the price. Appreciate the microtransactions aren't as bad as first thought. But regardless I'll wait to the under 20 quid range. Few to play and loads of big games coming out. Wolvenstein, Mario etc.

I've really enjoyed this game. Just coming to the end if it. I havent needed to spend any actual money for in game content. You earn plenty of in game currency to open boxes when you need them, be it for new orcs for your army, or for new equipment. I only paid £34.00 as a pre-order from simply games, would highly recommend

I agree it's disgusting but It has irritated me so much that people automatically pass judgement despite the game being absolutely the same wether they're there or not. It's just there to take advantage of gamers wanting to rank up quickly, which isn't right but doesn't impact on the game as a whole for someone unwilling to spend any extra cash.

I agree totally that they shouldn't be there. Well the actual pay to win system shouldnt be there, the loot boxes are actually a good idea in regards to how the building of the orc army works. They should have just totally removed the way of being able to spend actual money on them.
In regards to your little rant, Its sad that something I said can be despised. I was simply letting people know who have not played it you can play the game easilly, without needing to spend extra money. So no it doesn't effect the quality of what is an actually really fun game to play

I will wait tell the game is a tenner then buy all the loot boxes cheap on sale . I don't know how it all works with the boxes but give enough time maybe they release a edition with all lott boxes lol . Or is it like gta where there will always be something new future where they want u to waste dosh . wont be buying give it a year or something might change I doubt it . I cd rant but I'm not going to I hope the game doesn't sell and the developers learn there lesson .N64 remember games like £50 but u new where u stood with there games. I love rant hitman I cd rag of all day many rockstar gta . Developers will never learn with fb etc they know whathe fans want yet they add crap the people don't want.. I say fire all the staff with gta bring the guys back who worked on vice city etc same with hitman .

The way the loot works in this game is essentially you can soend in came currency or actual money on boxes containing either weapons (which will be based on your rank) that you can get from killing captains. Or you can get ones that contain orcs to go into your army. These also drop based on rank. It kind of feels like they decided to give people the option of actually buy them with real momey towards the end if development. It would have been alot better without the option there at all. As you really don't need to buy them to progress quickly through the quests in the game.

cheers for the reply . Looking online cheats on pc. If here is such a glitch of cheat on the xbox one version now . Then maybe wd be better to buy now before they wd pacth lol . Dont mind a easy grind like dark souls getting souls once places to farm . But the grind on gta is to much lol. I haven't completed the first shadow a lot the time u just mess bout and kill and kind of grind on that . Going to watch a few more videos on the game will defo get on sale one one time .

It's all a matter of choice and they've catered for either option. It doesn't put you at a disadvantage by not spending money. A bit like lowering the difficulty it just makes it easier and quicker to progress. If the option was never there no one would be any wiser and the game would be judged on its own merits. In my opinion it's a great game and has many enhancements upon the first which I enjoyed too. I've not felt the need to be forced into spending real cash but having the option for some is a bonus, personal choice I suppose.

Stfu. I hate people like you who speak like you're speaking for everyone when you're not.

People are obviously fine with lootboxes as people are buying them in droves. The only people who are making loot boxes a big deal are people who are scared it is going to kill off single player games and if thats the case then you better be scared.

Shadow of Mordollars. Heat when its £9.99.

Oh well looks like I missed this. I'll wait until it drops in price
