If you plan to play Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on Ultra settings on the PC, you'd better come prepared. According to NeoGAF user Regret Truth, Shadow of Mordor 's optional Ultra HD texture pack requires a whopping 6 GB of video RAM in order to run properly. The texture pack is not included in the game but is available as a separate day-one download.
Also, the 6 GB requirement is for 1080p; if you want to go higher, you'll really need some science-fiction level gear in your machine.
This news comes shortly after Bethesda revealed the recommended specs for The Evil Within, which require 4 GB of VRAM and an i7 processor for optimum performance.
