No more Nemesis Forge or Vendetta missions
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mandodari There was a very strange game that came out of nowhere in 2014.
Although many designers put considerable obstacles to making major changes to Middle-earth source material, Warner Bros. easily made a large-scale departure from Tolkein’s lagerium; Both from a practical and thematic point of view. It was a strange release, made even stranger by a controversy about the failure of some content creators to say they could not end the game in exchange for cash. Whatever the case, some people may have liked it; But come December 31 of this year, generations to come may enjoy it a little less.
An ominous message has recently been clarified on various digital marketplaces for the game, warning that as that date approaches, many features will be removed from the game (presumably because WB does not want to keep paying for online features). Those specialties are the Nemesis Forge mechanic (read: you can’t move your Nemesis enemies into the sequel) and the Vendetta missions (hunting through your friends list) and the lack of leaderboards. WBPlay is also being removed, but as a mercy award you are getting the “Orc Hunter” and “Grawwalker” epic races.
I always felt that the nemesis system was half-baked, but by 2021 it would be even less attractive. You can find a complete detailed description of the removed features. For now, follow-up releases Shadow of war is not impressed.
