Middle-Earth: Shadow of War’s local physical copies delayed until Thursday

1 min read


Despite the egregious loot boxes and the endgame content being completely blown out of proportion, I genuinely did enjoy Middle-Earth: Shadow of War. It’s one of my top ten games of the year, a sprawling sandbox that makes liberal use of its source material to tell its own tale. It’s massive, has dozens of hours of contents and it’ll leave you caring for a gang of smelly fat Orcs as if they were slightly better smelling members of your own family.

A great game, that many people locally can’t wait to start playing tomorrow. Digitally that is, because physical copies will be delayed until Thursday. So says AWN Nexus, who broke the news of those pesky Uruk-Logistics resulting in a two day delay. It sucks, I want you guys to have fun but hey: At least it’s only two days.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Skipping on principle. And that was even before yesterdays news that the ending is paywalled.

    Even if it’s the best game of 2017 I’ll still wait for it to go on sale. Apparently you need to grind your ass off the get the true ending of the game. But they’ve got you covered with loot boxes.

    • Yeah, that’s not really true. It’s being blown so out of proportion it’s silly. Remember Arkham Knight’s riddler trophy ending? Same sort of thing.

      • Hammersteyn

        But I hunted down every single trophy for that final battle against riddler. XD
        If it’s blown out of proportion then good. Opened up my usual websites this morning and all I saw was articles about the true ending.

    2 Days? Takealot has confirmed the 17th

    • Other retailers say 12th. Takealot may (hopefully) just be cautious in its pessimism.
