Here are Total War: Warhammer II's hardware requirements

The announcement of PC specs isn't nearly the big reveal that it used to be, back when game releases were often the big driver of hardware upgrade cycles. Still, it's always nice to how your machine is going to handle a game, so here are the details on the upcoming - and particularly demanding - Total War: Warhammer II.

First up are the specs for the best possible 60 frames per second plus performance with Ultra settings. 

  • 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

Okay, that might drive an upgrade or two. Here are the recommended and minimum specs for running the game with High and Low settings respectively.

Recommended

  • 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 @ 1080p

Minimum

  • 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 @ 720p

Frankly I would not want to see what the game looks or runs like at that lower-end spec.

New features for Warhammer II include a new sharpening filter, improved SSAO, a new volumetric fog system, and surfaces that now look wetter than ever!

Can't say I ever played a game of Warhammer previously and thought "Well, that could look wetter," but here we are.
