Back of the Box
In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, gamers take on 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. “In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, players will explore the dark and very personal theme of vengeance in a world where decisions have a consequence, and those consequences persist even after death,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The game introduces new gameplay mechanics to the action genre, creating opportunities for emergent and customized gameplay that will be rewarding for players.” 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 archenemies 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.

It's a shame, and a very dumb move. They would have gotten buyers, even if the buyers couldn't run it. They could have just said it was lower, and gotten buyers that can barely play it. This too would be a dumb move, but they did the exact opposite. They increased the reqs for marketing purposes, and are going to get low sales, and get on the bad side of gamers, which they already have.

Well yeah, I agree, but devs have to march to the beat of gamers and hardware manufacturers drum, not the other way around. You can always have low-end and high-end textures. It would be nice if a game had a low-end PC option, and a high-end PC option at download. It would be much better. You could choose your option, and download only that option to prevent large game sizes. You could redeem your game(in case you bought a better PC) if you have the verification that you bought it. Wouldn't that make more seance than this?

The devs would have a bit more stuff to do, but not too much, and I would rather wait for a game, than to have crappy performance.

no offence , bro but your card is a mid range card and can only play demanding games at low and casual games at high, if you wanted to play demanding games , you should have bought a gaming laptop/high end gpu
