Middle-Earth: Shadows of War PC Specs released

It seems like it was just yesterday when Warner Bros announced the sequel to the well-received Shadows of Mordor. In fact, the game was originally leaked, then quickly confirmed for an August Release date with a cinematic trailer for the game, now called Middle-Earth: Shadows of War.

While it’s strange to see a game have a release date this close to its announcement, it’s even stranger that we’re seeing the PC System Requirements this early as well! The specs were released via the game’s Steam page. The Minimum and Recommended specs for the upcoming action game is as follows:


  • OS: Windows 7 SP1 with Platform Update for Windows 7

Not much is known about the game at the time of this writing except that there will be improvements to the Nemesis system which made Shadows of Mordor one of the best action titles on the current generation.
