Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor PS4 Screenshots Hit the Web
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is scheduled to release tomorrow but for one individual that was just too late. Being able to obtain his PlayStation 4 copy earlier, he has now uploaded some lovely screenshots for us to marvel at.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor runs at native 1080p on the PlayStation 4 and shells out 60 frames-per-second. At least that’s what developer Monolith has stated. However, various reviews popping on the web have claimed that the frame rate is constantly fluctuating and is not constant at the 60 mark. At places where the amount of enemies on screen is more, the counter drops down to the 40 mark and goes back up again once you’re out of that situation.
That isn’t really surprising. The game’s PC version has some very demanding requirements where to be able to play the game at “Ultra” settings, players should have up to 6 GB of VRAM. Those opting for “High” settings will instead require 3 GB of VRAM.
The console version probably had to sacrifice a lot but even then the game is looking pretty on the PS4 and its fluctuating FPS counter is understandable.
