Total War: WARHAMMER - Specs and Release Date

edited March 2016 in General Discussion
Hey, guys. Can you sit down? We need to have a talk about Total War: WARHAMMER. It’s called the ‘Here are the specs but we also have some release date news’ talk.

So first things first: we’re moving the launch of the game back by a month to 24 May 2016. Listen – we don’t want to rush this. This could be the best TW game we’ve made and we want reviewers to have enough time to play it thoroughly before launch, so that you get a fair review from a reviewer you trust. Hopefully, you can understand that – and of course we apologise for any hassle this might cause you.

We will be changing the date here, and adding specs, today: http://store.steampowered.com/app/364360/.

Now, second things second: we have the minimum and recommended specs for you! We can also now reveal that Total War: WARHAMMER will be the first 64Bit Total War title, and that we’re also releasing an additional ‘60fps+ Spec’ for those gamers looking to hit that threshold during battles, and have added additional detail on the frame rate performance you can expect from each specification.

We’ve gone above and beyond to get you the best information you can have to judge how Total War: WARHAMMER will run on your rig. It’s right below.

    Part of me is disappointed the release date has been pushed back, because I am excited, but on the other hand this way its released after my exams and therefore I can play it properly on release! Huzzah!

    Thanks for all the information.

    64BIT? Can I believe it. After checking the specs i'm extremely happy looks like i'll make the 60fps+spec even though i'm happy getting a constant 30 fps across all titles, optimization looks good now will really be looking forward too the LP's as many of the youtubers also post their specs and going from memory I think Lionheartx10 has very similar specs. Not worried about waiting an extra month, thanks joey CA.

    Well I rather have a polished game on launch later than a technicall problematic one early. Oh 64 bit is awesome :)

    Really appreciate the details. Good to know that my pc is capable handling the game.


    However, the comparison screenshot link seems missing.
  • ArayelArayel Junior Member Posts: 328Registered Users
    If you'd said it was to make sure the game was finished to the best standard possible including some changes of design due to early feedback I'd be ok with that, but there is no such thing as a trusted review since all reviews are subjective....an extra month of watching other people play...erm no thanks. It's like your PR department is actually trying to sabotage this launch the way its going about things.

    Actually.... I am very happy of this.

    When I saw the preview and all CA staff saying "this will be fixed at release" so many time on lot of aspects.. well I was thinking it could be like Rome 2.

    Please do not hesitate to postpone even more if needed, the game has to be good at release.

    Of course some people will be unhappy about this, but will be way less worst than releasing a buggy game... there you will have unhappy peoples !

    utter pants and bad planning more time for other people to review .how about us that have pre ordered the limited edition and booked time from work many thanks
    it wouldnt be so bad if the promised you will see loads off gameplay before realse actully happened
    very very sad
  • CHARLOTTEB_CACHARLOTTEB_CA Administrator Posts: 3,031Registered Users
    @Arayel take another read, we stated "We dont want to rush this" - It means this has the potential to be the best game we’ve made, and we want to take the time to make sure we are proud of it. It's not just about the reviews =)

    While I'm very sad about having to wait another month to play, I can deal with it if it means the game will be finished and perfect on release.


    but still :(
  • SiWISiWI Senior Member Posts: 8,408Registered Users
    as I was afraid... I need a new pc...

    As far push back the release goes, if they have problems in some areas, better to push back, then to be sorry afterwards.
  • CHARLOTTEB_CACHARLOTTEB_CA Administrator Posts: 3,031Registered Users
    @tewys2 Sorry that you had already booked the time off work! Hopefully you can change that.

    There will be plenty more shown before launch!

    A bit disappointed at this. I don't personally even care about reviews and I don't mind few bugs at the release. I understand that game at release does not somehow mean that it's never going to change. Just look at Rome 2. Lot's of problems but CA worked hard and fixed them. Maybe it's just me, but I'd rather play a bit buggy game than not play it at all, especially considering how excited I am for this game. It also just sucks so hard, when you are told that it's going to release at this time, and then it's not... Well, luckily it's just 1 month and not 6 months or something.

  • SeldkamSeldkam Senior Member Posts: 3,619Registered Users
    I am very happy right now. An extra month can do wonders for a game and its a good sign from Sega or and ca

  • SuliotSuliot Senior Member Posts: 550Registered Users
    Well I don't mind the fact that you're pushing back the release date, I hope you use the extra month to optimize the game to perfection. And I was in a bit of a conundrum, Cossacks 3 is scheduled to come out somewhere around the end of April, so now I don't have to rush through one game to play the other, now I can take my time with it until WARHAMMER comes out.

    Good move. Glad you guys did the right thing. Now, charlotte, please give us some nice video/pic to make us feel nice again!!
  • ladymissfitladymissfit Senior Member Posts: 1,631Registered Users
    I'm not really familiar with PC-parts and stuff so is there a thread for helping people upgrade specific parts or can we do that here/need to make one? I think that could be pretty cool and helpful for some people, including me.

  • knodo85knodo85 Member Posts: 1,135Registered Users
    I'm not a programmer but still I believe it's a lot easier for developers to fix issues with the game before releasing it to the wild, while they still have complete control over it. Better for them to take the extra time and get it all right now than have a Rome 2 repeat situation.
  • ArayelArayel Junior Member Posts: 328Registered Users
    @CharlotteB CA

    Then that should have been the sentence that followed. If you write a statement and follow it with a descriptor you cannot expect people to read the posters mind and assume he meant something other than what was written.

    Post your question(s) and the details in the Tech Forum. There are some pretty good folks paying attention that browse there.

    Well that's fine, people want more time for reviewers and they don't want you to rush it. So I can be patient. :)

    I do demand Bretonnia in compensation though. ;)

    Woot, I meet recommended settings! Don't think I did for Attila! :love:

    Interesting with 60 fps thing with all on ultra and such, seems very specific and so likely very specifically tested? :)

    No, ok, I'm fine. I can wait. I can do this. And like it has already been said, better a seasoned product than a rushed one.
