Want to know the Middle-earth: Shadow of War system requirements? Read these words.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is the follow up to Monolith Productions’ Shadow of Mordor and continues the story of Talion, and the forging of a new Ring of Power. The game was only revealed last month but there’s not long to go until its release in August.

If you watched IGN’s Minas Ithil gameplay walkthrough video you’ll have seen that it’s an impressive looking game, and one that appears to tap into the extra power of the PS4 Pro, and upcoming Xbox Project Scorpio, very nicely.

But what kind of spec do you need if you want to play on PC? We undertook a dangerous mission to Mount Doom to find the answer – well, we looked at the game’s Steam listing – and here’s what you need if you want to defeat the forces of evil on PC.
