Warner Brothers Paid YouTubers To Comment Positively For Shadow Of Mordor

shadowofmordorColor us surprised that money exchanged hands for non-negative reviews. From the looks of things, Warner Brothers never had to do this. But are you really surprised? These games can bring in more money than movies and rock concert tours. Would you be tempted to pay popular people to review your moneymaker in a positive manner?

“WB contracted big YouTubers to play the game for their audiences without saying anything negative about it. Even further, WB didn’t require full disclosure. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) stepped up to issue an administrative complaint regarding the unlawful promotions, and WB has officially settled with the governmental body.

The FTC released a statement regarding WB’s actions and their settlement. In it, they state that WB “paid online ‘influencers,’ including the wildly popular ‘PewDiePie,’ thousands of dollars to post positive gameplay videos on YouTube and social media.” They say that these sponsored videos amassed more than 5.5 million views.”

Have you played Shadow of Mordor? What did you think? Shadow of Mordor Gameplay Trailer below. Read more on the FTC settlement that came down from this revelation here
