Six months after release, Shadow of War is removing its microtransactions.
Cool. Though I thought this was supposed to give us more choice and freedom. WB, why are you taking away our choice…
dont ever buy a WB game at launch ever again
Surprising. I had a very faint interest in this prior to the microtransactions killing that, but now I may give it…
Hooray!!! We have triumphed over evil again!!! Destroy all loot boxes, or perish in a tomb of your own making.
This is a good move, but as SOW is one of the games I wrote about gutting its progression system to chase microtran…
I legit forgot this game came out.
Sabía yo que sólo tenía que esperar. Ahora a por la GOTY cuando la den con el Gold
FASCINATING.
Now I will get this game next its on sale.
BRUTALIZAR AHORA ES DE DOMINIO LIBRE
Never should have had them in the first place. Microtransactions are a cancer in the gaming community. #gamedev
A tad too late for that, Warners.
Please don't give WB a pat on the head for this. Removing them now doesn't change the fact they had them for nearl…
Does this mean they will also re-table the games progression? Coz in my 100% attempt I quit on the second last fort…
Well, well, well! So the tides have turned!
I wonder if that also means they will fix the gameplay mechanics that are designed to sell said microtransactions.
Next battlefront 👀
Oh. I thought you needed these WB... What a joke.
Add a space on your mantle of victories, @JimSterling
Better late than never? Not really, damage has been done. Even with this, I doubt they'll actually do anything to l…
Estamos ganando esta guerra??
gg. Might pick it up one dayu since the end game grind will likely be gone as well.

Removing the microtransactions from the game they ruined once they've made their money just looks scummier to be ho…
👏👏👏
wow! will buy the game now!
It took'em 6 months to figure out it wasn't Sauron ruining games... It was microtransactions!!!
There's that word again, "Choice". I thought making a quick buck by purposefully restricting options was the opposi…
You know, this stuff is bullshit. If you're going to have microtransactions, stick to them and make them work with…
I might pick it up now, maybe.
Waiting 6 months to take out toxic micro transaction is a long time. However I might pick it up now, just wait and…
Looks like I'll be getting into @shadowofwargame after all. Now don't pull this shit again @wbgames
Is it a trend 🤞?
Six months after release they milked the customers enough and removing mictrotransactions and coming out of beta fo…
Goodbye "player choice"!
"Now that the game is over 6 months old, not as popular, and micro-transaction purchases are trickling down, we can…
Well this is...surprising. I wonder how many games have considered this in the past few months
A great lesson in modern day gaming, never pre-order anything and never buy anything at launch without reading revi…
Oh damn, if they keep to their word and don't sneak any other crap in then I'll buy the game for sure! Was desperat…
Let's all start removing Microtransactions ! AC Origins next pls (I hardly know Far Cry 5s exist 😅💪)
Will they also make the last act less of a grind considering that's why the microtransactions were there in the fir…
They shouldn't have included the loot box stuff to begin with, but honestly removing these doesn't make the game an…
Making the right move on my birthday. Sounds like cosmic design, mightnjust commit to this one later this year!
I imagine at this point companies know they can pump money out of individuals for a while, then once the well runs…
@CoalitionGears Take note guys...
Sie nehmen die Microtransaktionen raus und ersetzen sie... durch nichts?! Ich verstehe den Move von WB nicht…
Dan uwarsu den for live am ai
The lesson here is, once again, to never buy a WB game at launch.
It's a step in the right direction, but the damage is already done. I only wish GTA would've done this.
As noted in the article, this is relatively easy to do 6 months after release, after people have already bought and…
Still won't buy it I'm not in the business of rewarding Devs/pubs for removing something that shouldn't be in the g…
Too little, too late. WB can eat a dick until I can be bothered to touch it now. And that will probably be when th…
Bien. Pero igual qué risa que quieren que uno crea que fue por pura buena voluntad
Are they going to rebalance the ending of the game too or just leave it as is because that fixes nothing
Six months after release to announce it and another 3 or so until it actually takes effect. How generous of them 🙄
wow I don't think this has ever happened as far as I can see.
I guess the sales were not there in the first place. Good to know there is always an erase button.
„Wir entfernen Gold, Beutekisten und den Markt aus #ShadowOfWar.“ Nun auch bei Warner keine #Mikrotransaktionen meh…
Wenn das Gameplay daran angepasst wird könnte man sich jetzt tatsächlich überlegen es zu kaufen.
@AngryJoeShow #DLC @AJSADelrith Another one... It must be bad for business....
is this how it's gonna go from now on? games are gonna be shitty and exploitative to people who buy them new and th…
It's good to see this turning. It's easy to be cynical about microtransactions, but at least it feels like studios…
Seis meses después, cuando ya le sacaron toda la plata que pudieron (y que probablemente no fue tanta como esperaba…
Ahora que ya quitaron las microtransacciones de Shadow of War, aguanta comprarlo. Aunque primero toca jugar en form…

I doubt they also removed the end-game grind that those loot boxes were put in to take advantage of.
