Vote: Are Middle-earth: Shadow of War's new loot box microtransactions a good idea?
If building an orcish army in Middle-earth: Shadow of War the old-fashioned way is too slow for you, the game will let you spend real-life money to recruit powerful followers and get useful gear. Yes, loot boxes and microtransactions are coming to Middle-earth. Developer Monolith Productions has explained how the unexpected addition to the open-world action sequel will work in a post on its forum.Shadow of War will let you use real money to buy gold, which can then be used to buy loot boxes and other virtual goods on the market. These can also be purchased with Mirian, the standard currency you earn while playing, though it sounds like there will be separate versions depending on which currency you use.
