Might be worth putting the format and retailer in the title
All Middle Earth: Shadow of War Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
Get silver edition with tribes DLC bro. Awesome price OP. For anyone who buys this. Dont use TAA,use FXAA instead. Unless you like vaseline covered trolls. Lol.
I remember my local Asda went through a spell of super reduced Xbox and PS4 games. Was brilliant. Nothing since. Must have bought about 40games. All from £2 to £15. Made a bomb on eBay. Lol.
These are yellow stickered and so will be store dependant as to price. They should scan at £10 though if you can find them. These were reduced a good few weeks ago and so most stock will be gone.
They were £2.50 each in my local, PS4 & XBox.
Where were they instore as couldnt see them on Thursday? Is there any left if i was to go here on way home?
This is not nationwide. Went into a couple of them to look for something else, and the prices did not match.
Tempted as we completed the 1st one and really enjoyed it but is more of the same or fresh enough to buy?
Disbale TAA and go for a combination of FXAA an higher resolution. Leave TAA if you want everything covered with vaseline.
is this the one that's combat system / game can be played with "repetitively tapping single button" ? (someone posted a .gif in another thread - which put me right off). or was that mordor ? / they changed the combat system to make it more dynamic for shadow of war ? - thankyou for any help. p.s. silver edition is £15.99 at cdkeys.
Nice spot, was just about to post this!
£8 has always been my ceiling for games your only likely to play through once.
Getting closer to the £5 maximum I will pay for this. Paid about that for Shadow of mordor and enjoyed it. Hopefully by 2019 (embarrassed)
Go for it. Turn off TAA, set FXAA, game looks wayyyyy sharper this way. TAA gives you this washed out vaseline look which makes game look less impressive than the 1st one. High def texture pack is a must. Game looks better but setting textures to ultra from.high does not yield satisfactory results for the amount of Vram game consumes. High gpu usage on ultra pre set. Lol. Be prepared for your GPU to get hotter than usual.
I'm not sure, but I haven't seen it this cheap for a long time.
Is this even cheaper than it was in the summer sale?
Heat from me - been waiting for DQB to drop below a tenner :)
Sorry that wasn't aimed at you i meant to quote the original comment not yours ( (flirt) ) , the person was simply chatting (poo) Cracking deal btw
It was more out of sheer disbelief than not knowing what to say...
It's just better to not talk when you don't know what your talking about... Just dont
It'll take away your life. Addictive game.
Ok yes true, the 2 expansions do add a considerable amount of content but it is still not the full experience as you would need the gold edition to get the other 2 expansions (blade of galadriel and desolation of Mordor), or as you say pay individually. Just want to make sure people realise that if they do go for the silver edition, it is not everything. 8)
The expansions add new content to the game not available with this deal posted in fact if you wanted to add them you'd be paying £11.99 each @ MS Store So again you're getting a better deal opting for silver version for a few quid more. So I reckon anyone wanting the full experience probably does give a (poo) ..
Are they not just orc expansion packs, don't think it is any of the dlc that adds new missions.
Yeah well it's more than just a steelbook you also get the two Nemisis expansions and a the silver war chest included. So perhaps some might give a (poo) for just a few quid more because clearly you get more for your money buying the Silver Edition.
Not everyone gives a (poo) about steelbook/special editions. A lot of people like myself would go for the price
Yeah I meant minority haaaa.
Surely you mean minority here? :| I'm with you - I just couldn't get into it, which is weird as I enjoyed the Batman Arkham games (gameplay), and love Middle Earth, but somehow I just don't enjoy the first game.
Any find of a deal for the expansion pass ?
Know I'm in the minority here but I didn't really enjoy the first one. Gameplay felt super repetitive and didn't capture the rich atmosphere of the Tolkien world that was present in the books and the films to a smaller extent. Is this one any different or is it more of the same?
....and their next poop is a pineapple (highfive)
Also currently a flash deal at £11.47 for the standard edition on GMG https://www.greenmangaming.com/games/middle-earth-shadow-of-war-pc/
Been around the £10 mark already on CDKeys
https://www.cdkeys.com/pc/games/middle-earth-shadow-of-war-pc-steam-cd-key 12.99 on cdkeys for this version or 15.99 for silver edition
The Telltale games (ie Back to The Future) are usually a decent bet. I don’t personally buy games solely for trophies if I’m honest, but I’ve got a platinum for every Telltale season I’ve played..
Any quick platinum trophies ?
Yeah same here, got dozens still unplayed but from all the sales I find the Flash Sales harder to resist and best value on the whole. I’m yet to finalise purchase (got so many games can’t remember if I’ve already purchased Resi 0, need to check when I get home) but I’m looking at 5 or 6 games for £20 from Canadian store, that value is hard to beat.
Unfortunately not - DLC has to be the same region as the main game unless the DLC is standalone (which it isn't in this case).
Now sold out
If anyone wants the detail on the differences of editions: https://vulkk.com/2017/10/09/shadow-war-standard-silver-gold-different-version/
yes much better deal that the standard edition for a few quid more 8)
No. It only includes the nemesis expansions (first 2). You would need the gold edition to get the other 2 (blade of galadriel and desolation of Mordor) or buy separately. But still a good deal to get started.
You go to the cdkeys Facebook page and put in your email address and it will generate a code that works twice. I think different email addresses generate different codes
what is the facebook code?, thanks in advance
Just in time for a big update tomorrow, which looks to fix the final act of the game. Hopefully it improves things, but I paid £35 for my copy and more than got my monies worth, so for under £11 its an easy recommendation (especially if you played & enjoyed 'Shadow of Mordor').
still to expensive :D
I bought the standard version first, but then regretted not buying one with a season pass (though you can get the season pass seperate). Season pass basically gives you all current and all future dlc - and the dlc for Shadow of war is literally whole side stories giving you hours of extra play stuff
my bad wrong Middle Earth (embarrassed)
Where is this deal in that megathread please. :/
This is for the standard edition there is a silver and gold edition which come with extras (including a season pass) which give you access to quite a lot of DLC (story missions and tribes for the nemesis system). There is a massive update coming at the end of the month to remove all of the purchase options from the in-game store so you will not be able to purchase items with real money which is a good thing but I'm going to wait and see if they re-balance the game to take into account these changes. You will still be able to buy crates with in-game currency but as I haven't played this game yet I don't know what effect this change will have upon the game so I think I will wait and see how it pans out. Great price though OP... Heat added.
Not missing out on anything if I get this version right? Like a season pass in the special edition or something
Didn't have an exclusive steelcase in my one
already got shadow of mordor so shadow of war was only £21 :) Cheers
It's gonna go baltic. Maybe.
Thanks for posting @tjn_888 I have added the price and merchant to the title
What does this mean for me should I just get the standard version?
Free updates and loot box removal explanation below:
Could be seen as that... But now that you know - have faith and consider getting back into it. It's the long-game-payoff this one. I'm really enjoying this game, probably up there with some of the best I've played.
but surely that is bad game design if it makes you wait so long until its gets interesting?
Yeah that was the only reason I never bought this at launch and I do actually like the rng loot system aslong as it's in game currency only. What I read made it out that after the 17th of July all war chests are being removed and only the loot chests will be left either way I think I'll pick up a copy now.
Amazon order come with extra content too luckily
Back in stock at amazon, mine come with the extra content too.
Amazon price matched
Its £10 in Tesco
Bought from Tesco Loughborough for £10 at weekend
£10 at Tesco. Few left in Sale, Manchester
Bought this yesterday for £15 at Amazon do they still so the refund on items that change price?
Is this game any good? There was some sort of controversy with lootboxes or something?
Got this yesterday in Tesco Abbeycentre, thanks.
Pick this up for this price in Cardiff Tesco Extra
Thanks for this
Still too much.
Unread post unfortunately pal. Great prices though.
