Those of you who are planning to get Shadow of Mordor on October 7 are probably starting to ask questions on just how good the open world Middle Earth is going to look on next-gen consoles.
We know that Middle Earth: Shadow for Mordor is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360, but developers Monolith Productions have already confirmed that their main focus will be on PS4, Xbox One and PC which will have enhanced features.
Now though, it looks like we have the first clues to suggest that the Shadow of Mordor resolution will be running at 1080p on PS4. Here is what Kevin Stephens from Monolith said in a recent live stream of the game:
“It’s definitely 1080p and we are going to do everything we can to get to 60 frames per second”
That is obviously great news for PS4 gamers who are big fans of The Lords of the Rings franchise, but perhaps a little worrying for those planning to get the game on Xbox One.
There was no comment on whether Microsoft’s console would be able to hit the same benchmark, seemingly suggesting that it may be another game on Microsoft’s books that doesn’t run at full HD resolution natively.
Getting 60FPS on a LOTR open-world game would be some feat too, so hopefully we get that confirmation closer to release.
Are you planning to get this game after being impressed with the development so far? Let us know if 1080P and 60FPS is important to you on a game like Shadow of Mordor, or if it’s all about the gameplay.
