Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has received a mysterious update for consoles (v1.10) and PC, patch notes for which Monolith Productions has yet to reveal. It’s unusual to not have any official information, which has paved way for speculation about what the update does but what we do know so far is that it varies in size across platforms.
Over on Reddit, users are reporting a wide range of download sizes, from 50MB to 6GB on PlayStation 4 alone. The common assumption is that the patch might have been released to allow players to transfer their save data over to the upcoming sequel, Shadow of War, when it launches this October. Back in March, GamesRadar quizzed Monolith’s Michael de Plater about allowing players to import save files but he wasn’t able to comment at the time.
We’ll find out what the update does in due course and will keep our readers posted.
