If you're planning on getting the Shadow of Mordor sequel on PC but don't have a powerful rig, don't worry: the PC spec requirements aren't too bad.

On the heels of Shadow of Mordor's success, Warner Bros. Games recently announced a sequel called Middle-earth Shadow of War that's coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in August. Considering the last game was fairly well optimized across the PC build spectrum, we should expect the same for the sequel, as the flexible required PC specs seem to indicate.

 

In order to play Shadow of War on PC you'll need at least an Intel i5-2550K CPU, a GeForce GTX 670 or AMD Radeon HD 7950 GPU, and 8GB of RAM. The game's install size will clock in at about 60GB, but given the huge scope this should be expected.

 

 

MINIMUM:

 

OS: Windows 7 SP1 with Platform Update for Windows 7

Processor: Intel i5-2550K, 3.4GHz

Memory: 8 GB RAM

Graphics: GeForce GTX 670 | Radeon HD 7950

DirectX: Version 11

Network: Broadband Internet connection

Storage: 60 GB available space

 

RECOMMENDED:

 

OS: Windows 10 version 14393.102 or higher required

Processor: Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4GHz

Memory: 16 GB RAM

Graphics: GeForce GTX 970 or GeForce GTX 1060 | Radeon R9 290X or Radeon RX 480

DirectX: Version 11

Storage: 60 GB available space

"Experience how the award winning Nemesis System creates unique personal stories with every enemy and follower, and confront the full power of the Dark Lord Sauron and his Ringwraiths in this epic new story of Middle-earth. In Middle-earth: Shadow of War, nothing will be forgotten."

 

Middle-earth Shadow of War will be available on August 22, 2017 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. It will be available on Steam as well as Microsoft's Windows Store, and will be a cross-buy Play Anywhere game on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.
