Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is an upcoming game from Monolith production, which is being published by Warner Bros. Games. The game is supposedly very demanding on PC requiring upto 6 GB of VRAM for its optional “Ultra” quality textures, and about 3 GB for “High” quality textures. These requirements might not be a surprise since most of the current generation PC ports demand a higher VRAM size for the best quality preset on PC.
NeoGAF user [NaK] has got his hands on an early copy of the game and he shared some lovely screenshots directly from the PS4, which you can check out below.
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor was confirmed to be running at 1080p and 60 fps on the PS4, but does the frame rate hold stable 60 fps for the most part? According to the impressions from the reviews, this doesn’t appear to the case. The frame rate does appear to be 60 fps but it is also fluctuating. IGN’s reviewer confirmed that the game is 60 fps, but it is not constant 60 fps.
It is quite reassuring to see the PS4 version of the game holds up quite well compared to the PC footage of the game that we have seen so far. The demanding requirements of the game on PC means that it is atleast well optimized for the consoles this time around.
