Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has officially shuttered the servers for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor after a brief delay. The servers were originally supposed to shut up shop on December 30.
While it was initially believed this would stop users from unlocking all of the game’s Trophies, developer Monolith Production made some last-minute tweaks, hence the delay for the server’s shutting. You can see the changes below.
- The Nemesis Forge feature is no longer available.
- Vendetta missions are no longer available, but the “Repaid in Blood” achievement/trophy can still be unlocked.
- Leaderboards are no longer connected to other users and only show the player’s score, but “The Hunt is My Mistress” and “Lord of the Ring” achievements/trophies can still be unlocked.
- The WBPlay platform is no longer available, but the Epic Runes “Orc Hunter” and “Gravewalker” upgrades are now automatically awarded to all players.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor was released for PC, PS4 and Xbox One in September 2013 and arrived on PS3 and Xbox 360 a few months later.
