Shadow of Mordor locks up

Hello,

I recently downloaded the current driver 15.7 and everything works good except when I play Shadow of Mordor. When I am playing the game and some time after I first start, I use the "Focus" attack and then sporadically the game locks up and quits. So far it only happens when I use the "Focus" attack. There isn't any error code when it happens, I usually open the task manager and stop the shadow of mordor process. I first downloaded the current 15.7 a day after the release, used DDU to uninstall the previous driver, installed the 15.7 driver, and then it started happening. All of my other games work great ie. Metro Last Light, Project Cars, Dirt Rally, COD AW, and Grid Motorsport. So I tried different profiles and adjustments...even dropped the power percent on my GPU to a 20% reduction using MSI afterburner, which caused the game to freeze quicker during normal game play. Then today I used DDU again and re-installed the 15.7 driver and it still locks up. I even tried different OC'n 4.4ghz, 4.5 ghz, and 4.8ghz. Any suggestions?
