Yesterday saw the release of the Xbox One X and the Box Office Buz team were busily unwrapping their Project Scorpio pre-order. With the hardware update comes the Xbox One Enhanced experience to a plethora of hit titles including WB Games recent release Middle-earth: Shadow Of War. Continuing on from the hit Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Shadow of War picks up the gauntlet and transports gamers to a familiar land of Ring Wraiths, dark lords, elves and orcs...

With the Xbox One Enhanced experience gamers will now get to experience true 4K gaming on their Xbox One X console. Shadow of War does not just stop there, it offers up two Xbox One X enhancement options for gamers to choose from.

  • The first option focuses on resolution with increased texture detail, targeting native 4K.
  • The second option focuses on overall quality with increased draw distances, improved shadow and lighting conditions, increased vegetation, improved ambient occlusion, higher polygon counts and texture filtering improvements, all optimised for Xbox One X.

What does all this mean? Well, WB Games have done the hard work for us!

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is now available for the Xbox One family of consoles, Windows 10 PC through the Windows 10 Store, Steam, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro.
