Middle-earth: Shadow of War Mithril Edition Xbox One-PC Edition $99.99

Hello everyone, first post here but had to share this possibly slickdeal!

Normally $299 from other retailers, the Microsoft store has it for $99.99 for Xbox One/PC (Caution PC users read below).

The Mithril edtion comes with the gold edition game (all DLCs and expansions, normally $99 itself), and a ton of extras such as the amazingly detailed and surprisingly large Carnan drake vs Tar-Goth balrog sculpture (18 inches high!), game soundtrack and a ring replica. In game, comes with all expansion packs and some extra loot chests.

This version of the Mithril edition still comes with a steelcase, but instead of a physical copy of the game, it comes with a cardboard CD that has the game code on it in its place. This code works with both PC and Xbox, as it's part of Microsoft's Play Anywhere system: https://support.xbox.com/en-US/ga...cross-play

Unfortunately as a PC user, I still have not gotten the game to work on my PC after a good amount of time troubleshooting. Looks like many other people have also reported a crashing issue with this game when purchased through the Microsoft Store and thus I WOULD NOT recommend purchasing this game just for PC gaming alone (unless you have a lot of time on your hands to troubleshoot the crashing issues).

Luckily as an Xbox one user, everything works like a charm! Been enjoying every second of the game on my Xbox one X with the high resolution capabilities.

Enjoy! Smilie

I'm interested in the Xbox One version but I don't see it anywhere on the Microsoft store. The link is for the pc version only.

Hey Impaler7,

The code that comes in the box works with both PC and Xbox, it's part of Microsoft's Play Anywhere system: https://support.xbox.com/en-US/ga...cross-play

I login with both the same microsoft account on my PC and Xbox, so when I put in the code on my PC, the game automatically shows up on my Xbox as purchased.

Hope this answered your question!

Thank you. I didn't know it was a digital copy of the game in the box. I almost asked that but it says it comes with a steelcase and I just assumed it was a hard copy. But I guess companies have been goofy lately and put steelcases in collectors editions with no physical copy of the game to go in them. Thanks again.

Ah yea my apologies for not specifying that, and good catch! I will post that in the original post: comes with the steelcase with a cardboard CD that has the code on it.

Is there just one code for all of the add-ons or are there several codes. Would get this if I can sell the base game and keep the rest.

It's all one code for the gold edition of the game, I was in the same boat where I had the standard edition already, just purchased this for the gold edition extras + mithril items.

It might sink that that fairly quick.

The game works fine on windows 10 for me. I tried modifying the files to stop the intros that get old after awhile and then I had issues, but I was able to get it working again. I play it regularly on pc and xbox one x with no syncing issues. Scored this back on the SL 9.99 deal for the ultimate edition.
