Shadow Of War is just a couple of months away from launch and fans are eager to get their hands on the game. As the launch of Shadow of War is getting closer, Monolith Productions has been revealing new details about the game and now the studio has detailed Shadow Of War Ranked Online Mode which will also see the return of Vendettas from Shadow Of Mordor.
In Shadow Of War ranked online mode, there are two ways to invade other players’ world the first is a new mission type called Social Conquest. In Social conquest, players will set up an already conquered fortress of their liking and will select and overlord for that particular fortress and captains from the existing orc following.
In Social Conquest, players will also be able to purchase upgrades for their defending army before sharing the fortress online. Once the fortress is online, other players will be able to attack it, and the attacking player will be able to kill or brand the defending player’s forces but, these branded orcs will not return to the attacker’s game.
In friendly conquests, players can attack the fortress without the fear of permanently losing followers. However, in ranked online mode, players will lose their followers permanently and will earn better assault rating with every successful conquest and in the case of losing the rating will drop.
In Social Conquest, the reward for successful taking down a fortress will be a loot chest and some spoils of war. Spoils of War are points that players will collect to earn spoils of war chests which will contain followers and other goodies.
The other way of invading players’ game in Shadow Of War ranked online mode is “Vendettas” which returns from Shadow Of Mordor but, with minor tweaks. This Shadow Of War ranked online mode allows players to avenge the death your friend by summoning the Orc who killed him and fighting the Orc to death.
However, the scale of “Vendettas” has been increased in Shadow Of War which makes them very similar to the war chief confrontation missions from Shadow of Mordor.
If players are able to successfully complete this Shadow Of War ranked online mode this will earn them Vendetta loot chest. The friend you have avenged will get some Spoils Of War. Also, like the Social Conquest, Players will also have to travel to the other player’s game in order to avenge them. Also, players will not get to try again if they fail to avenge.
Shadow Of War is an open-world action adventure game in development at Monolith Productions and is scheduled to launch on October 10, 2017, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
