Middle-earth: Shadow of War Trophy List Has 53 Trophies to Earn

With just one week to go until Middle-earth: Shadow of War is in players’ hands, the full trophy list for the game has been revealed. With an impressive total of 53 trophies to earn, the Shadow of War trophy list only has one gold trophy, a handful of silvers, and a bunch of bronzes that will ensure players see every cave, stronghold, forest, and bad guy in Mordor. I’m personally a fan of longer trophy lists that help me get the most out of massive games, so I’m really excited to start killing orcs and earning trophies.

Most of the trophies seem to be for either completing missions in the open world, finishing the story, or leveling up Talion and exploring the game’s many mechanics. A couple of them will promote more interesting ways to play with the Nemesis system that players may not have considered. Here is the full Middle-earth: Shadow of War trophy list.
