Shadow of War Online Fight Pits

It’s pretty simple, really; you can now select your best orcs in your murderous army and send them to fight against those of other players. Monolith Studios is combining Lord of the Rings and Gladiator to make the most fun blood-letting experience even more fun. Today, take part in Middle-Earth Shadow of War’s Online Fight Pits.

Shadow of War Top 2

Warner Bros made the announcement today – By pitting your orcs against those of other players in Middle-Earth Shadow of War, you can increase their skill. We can’t forget the cost, however. The battle between your orc and that of your opponent is an ultimate struggle to the death. Since it’s possible for your favorite orcs to die, it’s better to be extra thoughtful when making your selection for the arena.

Fortunately, the game offers huge rewards for participating in the online fight pits. These come in the form of loot and powerful upgrades that will improve your army. What exactly you will obtain is a bit of a mystery, though. Even so, winning gets you the classic reward of bragging rights.

Recently, Warner Bros announced all the content coming in the Middle-Earth Shadow of War Expansion Pass – Four large DLC available for $39,99.
