Middle-earth: Shadow of War will have four major editions on launch day.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War got leaked with a Target listing for the game that was subsequently pulled but not before it was posted on NeoGAF. Shortly afterwards, Warner Brothers announced the game officially and released a cinematic trailer. It was also stated that a gameplay trailer will be released on March 8th. Prior to this announcement the game was rumored to be in development thanks to a stunt woman's resume.

The press releases hinted that Shadow of War will have a Standard Edition, Silver Edition, Gold Edition and Mithril Edition.

Silver Edition includes:

  • Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion
  • Outlaw Tribe Nemesis Expansion
  • Silver War Chest

Gold Edition will include:

  • Two expansions from the Silver Edition
  • The Blade of Galadriel Story Expansion
  • The Desolation of Mordor Story Expansion

The Nemesis Expansions will include new enemies, followers, missions, abilities, weapons and a Mythic Gear Set. Meanwhile, the Story Expansions will introduce a new campaign, playable character with abilities, side missions, enemies, allies, and more. Many have speculated that the listing of "War Chests" means that the game will have micro-transactions, although that has not been confirmed officially.
