Our PC videos of Shadow of War

We have just played the very beginning of Middle-earth: Shadow of War on PC and we have a couple of videos to share with you now. The game seems to be pretty demanding as our GTX 1080 cannot hold a steady 60 fps in 1440p when maxed out. Simply lowering the shadows to high instead of ultra seems to do the trick in such a resolution though. The first video was recorded in 1080p with the game fully maxed out as the game was also running in 1080p. The second video was recorded in 1080p while the game's resolution was pushed to 1440p with high shadows only. Take a look and let us know what you think. We'll also have some PS4 Pro footage sometime tomorrow.
