Total War: Warhammer – Delayed To May 24th, PC System Requirements Revealed

SEGA and Creative Assembly announced today a change to the release date for Total War: WARHAMMER, moving the launch of the game back by a month to the May 24th. In addition, SEGA unveiled the game’s minimum and recommended PC requirements.

Mike Simpson, Creative Director for Total War, said:

“This could be the best Total War game we’ve ever made. We don’t want to rush it. It’s an enormous game and we also want to make absolutely sure reviewers have enough time to play it thoroughly before launch.

Many thanks to the huge number of people who have pre-ordered and are eagerly awaiting release day. We’re pulling out all the stops for you.”

Total War: WARHAMMER will be the first 64Bit Total War title. Cretiave Assembly has also released an additional ‘60fps+ Spec’ for those gamers looking to hit that threshold during battles, and has added additional detail on the frame rate performance you can expect from each specification.
