Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia release date, system requirements revealed

Total War's first Saga outing, Thrones of Britannia, makes significant changes to the Total War formula. That's according to strategy expert Tom, whose in-depth preview prepares us for some distinct design experimentation in the offshoot series' debut venture. 

From a technical standpoint, we already know Thrones' historical map stretches 23-times further than that of main series forerunner Attila. But the question is: how will your system cope in the face of all of this game's new gubbins? 

Creative Assembly and Sega have now revealed the recommended and minimum system requirements you'll need to power Saga's Viking Invasion of Britain:
