Information on Middle-earth: Shadow of War keeps flowing. After yesterday’s leak and today’s official announcement, Warner Bros and Monolith Productions also shared the official system requirements for the PC version of the game via the Steam page.

That’s unusual considering we’re almost six months away from the release (scheduled for August 22nd), though Capcom did the same with Resident Evil 7 Biohazard.
