Your PC needs to be this big to handle Total War: Rome II

1 min read

Totar War: Rome II is coming, and it looks amazing and massive.  Because elephants!  But how much space will it take up?  Will Total War mean total upgrade?

Here are the specs:


  • 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


  • 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

As a lowly, hipster Mac user, I hear that this is quite doable as far as specs go.  However, be aware of the 35GB hard drive space – might mean you need to clear out some games gathering ‘dust’ on your ‘desktop’.
