Middle Earth: Shadow of War question

Postby VideoGameCritic » November 30th, 2017, 11:57 pm

I recently rewatched the Lord of the Rings trilogy, which made me interested in this new game Middle Earth: Shadow of War for the PS4/XB1. My question is, is this an online game, or can I play it as a single-player offline adventure?

My ever-so-unhelpful Game Informer magazine doesn't supply that level of detail.

Please advise!

The last one was a single player offline game. It was basically assassins creed.

I did not buy this new one because it is has loot boxes in it. It is a one player game.

Here look on the right hand column and you will see the steam guide tells you what it is. Single player with in app purchases.

You say it's a one-player game, but if it has loot boxes, doesn't that mean it requires some kind of online connectivity?
That's what I'm trying to avoid.

The game can definitely be played offline. The loot box feature will not be available, but who cares about that anyway.
