    Phoronix: Benchmarking Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor On Linux

    Yesterday Feral Games released Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor for Linux and Mac OS X. Since its release, I've been very busy working to get some benchmark results produced for this AAA game that's out for Linux one year after the Windows released. Included in these initial results for Shadow of Mordor are benchmark results for a few modern high-end graphics cards plus looking into the warning issued by Feral about the lack of AMD support.

    Impressive size for a game, 67 GB is much more than my 40 GB 4G limit But this is really a demanding title, especially good to improve gfx drivers - AMD should create a nice CAP for it and fix the rendering issues/crashes. Not sure how fast that will happen as i guess they have got enough to do with Win 10... Automated testing options would be really nice, but that game is way over my limit to test it - maybe they could add a "little" demo with just a few GB.

      If they don't put the "Tiger team" on this and solve it ASAP, I think we can assume they've completely given up on GL for anything but legacy and are putting all their eggs into Vulkan.

        this was explained on reddit. Linux version with all DLC is 41.5GB. 67GB is OSX since it hasn't got compressed textures

          I preordered it way back, so now i got it even though im running open source drivers on a AMD card. It.. actually runs! Performance is quite poor though, and a lot of models are invisible, sooo definitely unplayable.

            Just to make sure before buying, this is not a dropdown etc. game but the videos are actual in game taken? So it's Tomb Raider, 3rd person style but with even better graphics etc.?
            Thanks

              It's basically an Assassin's Creed clone with awful controller mappings and no way to fix as irrelated actions are hardcoded together and you only get to decide which key they are bound to

                I dont think that battling massive amount of orcs has anything to do with Tomb Raider, check youtube for gameplay videos. This is more like toned down God of War than Tomb Raider.

                  It's more of a stealth game, really. You are in Mordor so if you get involved in those massive battles you need to keep in mind orcs get a fairly steady supply of reinforcements in most places that matter

                    Well I mean the gameplay. You're behind the player(Lara Croft) in a 3D world, seeing the player do things etc.? I don't have those other games mentioned, so if I'm wrong thanks for letting me know. The videos look better than Tomb Raider's world, real game world? Must be gorgeous then...well I search youtube now.
