    [​IMG]If your new to Total War: Warhammer you might like to check out this game guide @PCGamesN. They report on the factions, what to expect from the DLC, system requirements, modding and the release date which is now May 24th. The game itself will come with comprehensive modding tools and has the Chaos Warriors faction as a pre-order incentive.

    The big question: can you run it? Given the scale, Total War games tend to have fairly high requirements if you want them to look their best and perform well. Attila's highest settings, for instance, weren't even designed with contemporary PCs in mind, but rather PCs of the future. In the case of the Total War: Warhammer system requirements, it looks like Creative Assembly expect it to run on a broad range of machines, but only if you're willing to make sacrifices.

    If you've got 3GB of RAM, an Intel Core 2 CPU and an AMD Radeon HD 5770 1024MB or equivalent GPU, then you've hit the minimum requirements. Unfortunately that means you'll be playing everything on low, and will still only get 15-25fps on the campaign map, which is pretty horrible.

    To push the graphics settings to high and get around 50fps, you'll need 8GB of RAM, and Intel Core i5-4570 3.20GHz or equivalent and a GPU like the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2048MB. And if you want the game to look its best and run at over 60fps, you'll need something like a GTX 980 and an i7-4790K CPU.​
