What are the Total War: Warhammer II system requirements? Well, a PC, and an appetite for total war are a good start.

Creative Assembly and Sega have released a detail breakdown of the PC system specs required for the upcoming Games Workshop strategy game, Total War: Warhammer II.

Total War: Warhammer II introduces a number of new graphical features to the series, including a new sharpening filter, wet-look surface modelling, and a volumetric fog system.

Whether you intend to save the great vortex or encourage its demise, here’s what you’ll need to play Total War: Warhammer II:

Minimum Total War: Warhammer II system requirements

Expected around 25-35 FPS on campaign map and in a 1v1, 20 units vs 20 units battle, default graphics preset set to “Low”, running at 1280×720.

  • Operating System: Windows 7 64Bit
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 3.0Ghz
  • RAM: 4GB/5GB*
  • Install size: 60 GB
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 460 1GB | AMD Radeon HD 5770 1GB | Intel HD4000

*PC integrated graphics chipsets, e.g. Intel HD series, will require 5GB system RAM

Recommended Total War: Warhammer II system requirements

Expected around 45-55 FPS on campaign map and in a 1v1, 20 units vs 20 units battle, default graphics preset set to “High”, running at 1920×1080.

  • Operating System: Windows 7/8.1/10 64Bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4570 3.20GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Install size: 60 GB
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 4GB | AMD Radeon R9 290X 4GB

60fps+ system requirements

Expected 60 FPS+ on campaign map and in a 1v1, 20 units vs 20 units battle, default graphics preset set to “Ultra”, running at 1920×1080.

  • Operating System: Windows 7/8.1/10 64Bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Install size: 60 GB
  • Video Card: Nvidia GTX 1070 8GB

What’s really interesting about the Total War: Warhammer II system requirements – aside from the fact they’ve said integrated graphics will just about work, assuming you have enough system RAM – is that they’ve offered a third option.

Normally we’ll see minimum and recommended, but in this instance, the recommended specs aren’t that high; instead they’ve offered a sort of ‘recommended+’ level, for people who really want the game to fly.
