Shadow of War gets set for Xbox One X with a bunch of improvements

Are you a Lord of the Rings fan who’s getting an Xbox One X this week? Then you’re going to love what Warner Bros has in store for the recently released Shadow of War.

My… precious!

Middle-earth: Shadow of War has already made a decent impact with its release not too long ago. The game followed up on the already pretty great Shadow of Mordor with improvements to the Nemesis system and all new things to do. So needless to say, it was probably already worth a look if you happen to be a Lord of the Rings super-fan. With the release of the stat-boosted Xbox One X this week though, it’s about to get  whole lot prettier.

Not that that’s all you’ll get in the update to the game, which fine-tunes it for X, but it’s sure to get a visual boost. According to Warner Bros, the game now plays in 4k on the X with improved detail. Expect a higher poly count, boosted draw-distance, and a surprising ability for choice.

You can actually pick what you’d rather allocate resources to in this update. So whether you prefer “detail” or overall “quality”, you can actually make the choice in the game’s new X-specific settings. Pretty slick.

Here are the details in one convenient image:
