Like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and recent installments in the Assassin's Creed series Middle-earth: Shadow of War will include microtransaction within an online only system called the Market.

The Market will include the following:

Loot Chests contain Gear (weapons and armor) of varying rarity. Equipping and upgrading these weapons and armor enhance Talion’s character abilities. Loot Chests can also contain XP Boosts that help level up Talion faster.

War Chests provide Orc followers of varying rarity to help forge a strong army. They can also contain Training Orders to level up and customize Orc followers.

XP Boosts are consumables that help level up Talion faster.

Bundles package up Loot Chests, War Chests and Boosts together at a great value.

To purchase these items players must earn Mirian or Gold through the game. Mirian is the game’s in-game currency and can be obtained by:

Defeating Treasure Orcs
Destroying Gear for Mirian
Destroying Orc followers for Gear (which can be destroyed for Mirian)
Finding Mirian stashes throughout the game

Gold is a rarer form of in-game currency and can be purchased through the Xbox store, PSN store, added to Steam Wallet, earned in specific milestones, and engaging community events.

"An important aspect of the Nemesis System now comes in forging, customizing and leading your own army of unique Orc followers against the fortresses of Mordor. There are different ways to do this, including dominating Orcs by exploring the vast open-world and encountering them as part of Orc society, or players can acquire Orcs and other items through the Market (in-game store)."

In the post, WB Games and Monolith explained that nothing is locked through Gold and everything can be earned through progression.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War launches on October 10th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
