The new AI is merciless.

The Creative Assembly have just released the system specs for Total War: Shogun 2. Read on to find out if Shogun II: Total War will run on your PC.

Minimum Specs (Required for playing Total War: Shogun 2):

  • 2 GHz Intel Dual Core processor / 2.6 GHz Intel Single Core processor , or AMD equivalent (with SSE2)

  • 1GB RAM (XP), 2GB RAM (Vista / Windows7)

  • 256 MB DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics card (shader model 3)

  • 1024x768 minimum screen resolution

  • 20GB free hard disk space

Recommended Specs (Recommended for optimum game play of Total War: Shogun 2):

  • 2nd Generation Intel® Core™i5 processor (or greater), or AMD equivalent

  • 2GB RAM (XP), 4GB RAM (Vista / Windows7)

  • AMD Radeon HD 5000 and 6000 series graphics cards or equivalent DirectX 11 compatible graphics card

Not too punishing considering that games like Battlefield 3, which will also come out this year, won't run at all on XP systems . Having said that, a 20 Gigabyte install? That's a pretty big chunk of hard drive real estate. Hopefully the game will be worth it, we'll know when it's released in March.
