Here are the system requirements for Middle-earth: Shadow of War

Shadow of War release date

The first game, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, was all about knowing your enemy. Using the Nemesis system, you could squeeze intel out of lowly orcs and find out their boss’s weaknesses. You were then free to attack, armed with that knowledge. 

Check our list of upcoming PC games for more future hits. 

It’s appropriate, then, that the system requirements for that game’s sequel, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, would be revealed so far in advance. Armed with this knowledge, you’re free to plan your attack/ upgrade your rig.

It’s a refreshing change, as this is pretty much unheard of. I mean, the game was announced literally yesterday.
