Total War: Warhammer dated, system specs released

So, can your PC play Total War: Warhammer in all it’s glory when it hits on May 24th?

First, that’s the new release date for the Total War series’ first Warhammer-themed game, May 24th. And it’s a game very much worth getting excited about, even if you’re specifically into Warhammer. That’s because the game’s developer Creative Assembly says it could be the best game in the line.

“This could be the best Total War game we’ve ever made. We don’t want to rush it.” said Mike Simpson, Creative Director for Total War, “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.”
