PlayStation Plus subscribers could get Middle-Earth: Shadow of War as part of this month's lineup of games, but it looks like Warner Bros. is calling time on its predecessor and will be removing a few key components.

Released in 2014 to critical acclaim, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor will lose online functionality starting December 31, 2020, a decision affecting all editions of the game.

Details of the affected features were shared on the Shadow of Mordor Steam page, which confirmed the news via this post:



Note: Certain features of the Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor video game will no longer be available starting December 31, 2020.

Features Affected:
• The Nemesis Forge feature will no longer be available. As a result, players will no longer be able to transfer their in-game Nemeses from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor to Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
• Vendetta missions and leaderboards will no longer be available.
• WBPlay will no longer be available, but the epic "Orc Hunter" and "Gravewalker" runes will be automatically granted to all players.

As a single-player experience, the base game is still fully playable, but it's still disappointing to see these features disappear, even if they're only minor ones. Shadow of War remains unchanged at this time, but stay tuned to GameSkinny for any future updates.
