Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor with GeForce GTX 970 at Maximum Settings

The Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor has been one of the most awaited games in PC this year, and recently it’s now available. Before the game was released, there were lots of reports saying that the game will be a very demanding game and will require you to have a high end setup to be able to play the game smoothly. Some say, it would require 6GB of VRAM, but that’s totally not true. You don’t need 6GB of video memory, but you do need at least 8GB of DDR memory on your system for the recommended settings. A Youtuber that goes by the handler “teoKrazia” has recently shared a video showing that a GeForce GTX 970 can very much play the game at maximum settings. Watch the video below.

The video above was recorded using NVIDIA’s ShadowPlay and his gaming setup was powered by an old Intel Core i5 2500K Sandy Bridge processor clocked at 4.4GHz, with 8GB of DDR3 clocked at 1600MHz, and an MSI GeForce GTX 970 Twin Frozr V with FoceWare 344.11 WHQL.

I think Crysis 3 is still even more demanding than this game. For gamers who currently have a GTX 770 and above, I don’t see any problem why you can’t play this game at maximum settings. Probably for GTX 750 Ti users, you might want to set your graphic settings somewhere in Medium to be able to play this game smoothly. Anyway I’ll have my own copy of the game very soon and I’ll try to share some benchmarks for the GTX 750 Ti and R9 285 graphics card.

About Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is an action-packed adventure-RPG inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Exploring an original story of vengeance and redemption, the game puts players in the role of Talion, a valiant ranger whose family is slain in front of him the night Sauron and his army return to Mordor — moments before his own life is taken. Resurrected by a Spirit of vengeance and empowered with Wraith abilities, Talion ventures into Mordor and vows to destroy those who have wronged him. Through the course of his personal vendetta, Talion uncovers the truth of the Spirit that compels him, learns the origins of the Rings of Power and ultimately confronts his true nemesis.

Every enemy that players face is a unique individual, differentiated by their personality, strengths and weaknesses. Through the Nemesis System, enemy relationships and characteristics are shaped by player actions and decisions to create personal arch enemies that remember and adapt to the player and are distinct to every gameplay session. Gamers are able to craft their own battles, enemies and rewards within the dynamic world that remembers and adapts to their choices, delivering a unique experience to every player.
