Warner Bros Games has announced the online features of Monolith’s Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor will go offline later this year. We can confirm that by looking at the Steam page of the title.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Online Features will be taken offline on December 31st, 2020
Starting from the date we mentioned above, the game will not have online features anymore. So this means, we will not be able to access the online features on PC, PlayStation or Xbox. Although this doesn’t mean that the game will not be available anymore, it means that we will not be able to access some pretty nice features:
- Nemesis Forge will not be available. You will not be able to import your Shadow of Mordor nemesis into the sequel game, Middle-Earth: Shadow of War after December 31st
- Vendetta Missions, where you kill the orc who killed a person on your friend list, will no longer be available. Additionally, the Repaid in Blood achievement/trophy, which requires completing a Vendetta Mission, will no longer be achievable
- Everyone will get the Epic Runes ‘Orc Hunter’, and ‘Gravewalker’ as WB Play will no longer be available.
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is the first game of the series that will lose its online features. When we think that it’s been six years since the game came out, we can say that it is already enough for a game to stay online for six years. Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with this decision. But the main problem is with the feature Nemesis Forge. Because if you want to transfer your progress to the next game, you will not be able to do it.
