Middle-earth


 

A new update is now available for Middle-earth: Shadow of War that adds support for Microsoft’s recently released Xbox One X console.

On Xbox One X, players will have the choice of two options: Favor Resolution and Favor Quality.

Favor Resolution targets native 4K with increased texture detail. While Favor Quality focuses on the overall quality of the game with increased draw distances, improved shadow and lighting conditions, increased vegetation, improved ambient occlusion, higher polygon counts, and texture filtering improvements.

For players using a 1080p screen, the game will supersample the 4K image down to 1080p to offer a sharper image.

Last month, the publisher unveiled the four expansions that will be included in Shadow of War‘s season pass: Slaughter Tribe Nemesis Expansion, Outlaw Tribe Nemesis Expansion, The Blade of Galadriel Story Expansion, and Desolation of Mordor Story Expansion.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
