System Requirements Revealed for Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

System Requirements revealed

Ever since the existence of Middle-Earth: Shadow of War was leaked on Target’s website, the Internet has been getting flooded with new information about developer Monolith Productions’ sequel to their 2014 hit game Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.  Now, thanks to some digging on Steam, we have a full list of System Requirements to go alongside all the other info we’ve learned thus far. Check to see if your PC is up to the challenge:


    • OS: Windows 7 SP1 with Platform Update for Windows 7
    • Processor: Intel i5-2550K, 3.4 GHz
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: GeForce GTX 670 | Radeon HD 7950
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection
    • Storage: 60 GB available space


    • OS: Windows 10 version 14393.102 or higher required
    • Processor: Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz

    • Graphics: GeForce GTX 970 or GeForce GTX 1060 | Radeon R9 290X or Radeon RX 480
    • DirectX: Version 11

Steam was also kind enough to provide us with some information about the game.  It’s a little vague, and the description of the sequel is a little obvious, given what the entire first game was about, but it is still nice to see the official listing.  Plus, it also gives us confirmation that the Nemesis System is returning, which was arguably the star feature of the original Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.

Go behind enemy lines to forge your army, conquer Fortresses and dominate Mordor from within. 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.”

The game is scheduled to ‘Simply walk into Mordor’ on August 25, with the standard edition of the sequel running you $60.  The Silver Edition and Gold Edition will run you $80 and $100, respectively. It will be available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

So, what do you think of the released system requirements?  Can your rig handle it as is, or will you have to put some money down for an upgrade?  Let us know what you think in the comments section below, or come start a conversation with us on Disqus!  As always, stay tuned to DFTG for all your gaming and entertainment needs, and come follow us on Twitter for our 24/7 news feed!
