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.

Total War: Warhammer II is released on September 28, 2017. If you pre-order the game, or buy it within its first week on sale, you’ll receive a code for Total War: Warhammer Norsca as a free early adopter bonus.
