The One Xbox to rule them all.
Just in time for the launch of the new powerhouse console from Microsoft, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has rolled out the update for Middle Earth: Shadow of War to take advantage of the new Xbox One X system.
While unlocking 4K and HDR, players after applying the new update will find two distinct options in how they want to leverage the horsepower of their new console. One of those options focuses on visual fidelity and resolution with better texture detail, and targeting 4K resolution while the other will go for better quality at a lower resolution, with increased draw distance, better lighting, vegetation and higher polygon counts, among other improvements.
Picking up from the events of Shadow of Mordor, The new open world RPG launched on September 28th and put players back into the world of Middle Earth and its protagonist Talion. While the addition of lootboxes caused some controversy, the game was generally received well by critics.
