Caesar the Total War: Rome 2 system specs

You'll need a RAM or two.

The question of "will Total War: Rome 2 run on my computer?" has been answered - the system specs have been released.

Creative Assembly's committment to keeping the base requirements the same for Rome 2 as they were for Shogun 2 means a dual-core processor, 2GB RAM and an oldish graphics card will see you through, although not in high resolutions.

Oh, and even Windows XP is supported.

Min spec:

  • 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: 1024x768

But to experience Total War: Rome 2 properly, in all its grisly detail, you'll need something more powerful.

Brace yourselves.

Rec spec:

  • 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: 1920x1080

Total War: Rome 2 is due out 3rd September - a Tuesday.
