Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor - The Bright Lord packshot image
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is set to come to a climactic end with its final DLC pack. The Bright Lord will allow players to step into the shoes of legendary elf Celebrimbor, in a campaign set thousands of years before the events of the main game. The Bright Lord is a fairly extensive story-based expansion with players battling through ten missions, culminating in an epic face-off with Sauron himself. Celebrimbor will be far different to play as than Talion, with Monolith’s director of design Michael de Plater likening him to a glass cannon. He’s in possession of the One Ring, which increases his powers of domination, allowing him to force enemies to fight for him, or wear the Ring to enter the Wraith world and slow down time. He’s also even more proficient with a bow, capable of firing off rapid fire shots. His combat abilities are going to be necessary against the more powerful enemies, which can now go up level 25 with a range of deadly new abilities. Sauron’s at the height of his power and he’s letting everyone know about it.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor - The Bright Lord

GeForce GTX 1060

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old GeForce GTX 1060 while playing Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor - The Bright Lord we quickly see it can get a very strong 162 FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor - The Bright Lord rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the GeForce GTX 1060 will still get a solid 53 FPS.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor - The Bright Lord screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 53 FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 88 FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 116 FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $2.15 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $2.83 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $4.70 per frame.
