Total War: Rome 2 System Requirements Revealed

Rome 2 Phalanx

The Creative Assembly has unveiled what PC gamers will need to run its latest game of high detail conquest.

The Total War games tend to be rather large scale affairs. A single battle can involve armies with thousands of soldiers that the player, in turn, can zoom in on to admire as they clash. With the combat involving so many moving, highly detailed parts, you’d probably be correct to assume you’d need some processing power to back the game up. Now, to help franchise fans prepare for the heavy load of the upcoming Total War: Rome 2, the game’s developers, The Creative Assembly, have released the title’s system requirements.

According to the developer, the system requirements are as such:

Minimum:
OS: XP/ Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8
Processor: 2 GHz Intel Dual Core processor / 2.6 GHz Intel Single Core processor
Memory: 2GB RAM
Graphics: 512 MB DirectX 9.0c compatible card (shader model 3, vertex texture fetch support).
DirectX®: 9.0c
Hard Drive: 35 GB HD space
Screen Resolution: 1024×768

Recommended:
OS: Windows 7 / Windows 8
Processor: 2nd Generation Intel Core i5 processor (or greater)
Memory: 4GB RAM
Graphics: 1024 MB DirectX 11 compatible graphics card.
DirectX®: 11
Hard Drive: 35 GB HD space
Screen Resolution: 1920×1080

With the game’s hardware requirements unveiled, we’re curious as to how our readers’ current PC builds stack up. Personally, Total War: Shogun 2 was the game that showed me just how out date my desktop PC was. Will Total War: Rome 2 be doing the same for you, or will you manage to squeak by and stave off upgrading just a bit longer? Fans everywhere will find out when the game launches on September 3rd.
