Total War: THREE KINGDOMS Official PC System Requirements

SEGA and Creative Assembly have revealed the official PC system requirements for Total War: THREE KINGDOMS. Creative Assembly has also listed some of the graphical features that the game supports and confirmed that THREE KINGDOMS will not support Crossfire or SLI systems.

According to the team, the game sports new post-processing effects, including their best bokeh (depth-of-field) solution yet, and two different palette options: Romance (rich, vibrant colour saturation) and Records (lighter, more realistic colour saturation). On top of that, Creative Assembly has now implemented Screen Space Shadows for finer detail in shadowed areas, added support for TAA and has improved all the materials textures (skin, leather, wood, metal etc).

As for the PC specs, Creative Assembly lists an Intel Core 2 Duo 3.00Ghz with 4GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GTX 650 Ti or AMD Radeon HD 7850 graphics card for gaming at Low and 720p with 25-35 FPS on campaign map and in a 1v1, 21 units vs 21 units battle.

You can find the full PC specifications for this latest Total War game below. Those interested in TAA and the lack of multi-GPU support can read Creative Assembly’s blog post here.
