Total War: ATTILA – Extreme Quality Setting Built for Future Graphics Cards

Total War: ATTILA releases today and The Creative Assembly decided to share some new information about the game’s requirements. According to the development team, Total War: ATTILA will feature a graphics preset option that is designed for future graphics cards.

According to The Creative Assembly, Total War: ATTILA will come with five graphics presets. These are:

  • ‘Max Performance’ – integrated chipsets and older cards
  • ‘Performance’ – low end cards
  • ‘Quality’– mid range cards
  • ‘Max Quality’ – high end cards
  • ‘Extreme Quality’ – future cards – no card is set to this out of the box

Naturally, the game will also feature an ‘Advanced’ option via which PC gamers can enable/disable individual graphics settings. Moreover, the game’s official PC recommended requirements specs are not for its ‘Extreme Quality’ option, but rather a spec which “we believe gives you a good experience of the game as we’d recommend it is played.”

Total War: ATTILA is based  on a newer iteration of The Creative Assembly’s TW Engine, something that – at least according to the team – explains the higher PC requirements (compared to Rome II).

Last but not least, way the game handles texture resolution based on available VRAM.
