Pretty solid launch for Shadow of War.

Despite the controversy surrounding Middle Earth: Shadow Of War loot box implementation, along with the whole DLC issue, Monolith managed to move 400,00 copies.

When it comes to physical sales, according to GFK Chart tracking, the title comes in second just before EA Game’s massive football franchise FIFA 18. 

Overall it seems that the Shadow of War’s launch has been pretty well – but it remains to be seen just how long the game will manage to keep its spot on GFK.
