The system requirements for the PC version of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor have been revealed by Steam and, surprisingly, Monolith's action-adventure appears to be even more demanding than Ubisoft's graphical giant Watch Dogs.

Shadow of Mordor requires at least a 2.67GHz Intel Core i5-750 or 3.4GHz AMD Phenom II X4 965 to get running, coupled with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 6950.

In comparison, Watch Dogs 'only' requires an NVIDIA GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 5770.

To get the most out of Mordor, though, you'll need a GTX 670 or Radeon HD 7970, along with a 3.4GHz i7-3770 or 4.0GHz FX-8350. The game only supports 64-bit systems, too.
