Middle-earth: Shadow of War has been said to be a huge game, but we haven’t expected it was going to be that big – the program takes up 97.7 GB of disk space on PC and 69.93 GB on PlayStation 4 Pro, tweeted Dan Stapleton. This is probably a record game size, previously held by Forza Motorsport 7 (about 95 GB). That is partly the result of featuring 4K cut-scenes, a massive open world, three times bigger than in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and an impressive variety of orc tribes and orcs’ voice acting.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War is launching tomorrow on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. So far, the sequel of Monolith Productions’ take on a Lord of the Rings open-world action game has been getting mostly positive reviews. Editors have been praising the game’s engaging combat system, character progression, commanding your own army and the overall evolution in comparison with the first part. On the other hand, some complain about the game’s repetitiveness and slow progression of the story. You can find more reviews on Metacritic.
