27/01/2022 Creative Assembly has provided performance expectations.

Total War: Warhammer 3’s release date will soon be upon us, so it’d be wise to ensure your gaming PC is capable of meeting the game’s system requirements. Creative Assembly’s confirmed it’s going all-in on story with its final Total War title set in the Warhammer universe, and it’s safe to say we can expect some graphical improvements and optimisations too.

Creative Assembly told us that players who meet the minimum specs can expect to see 30fps in a typical 20vs20 battle scenario, at 720p using the Low preset. Moving up to recommended will see frame rates increase to 45fps, but at 1080p with the High preset. Regardless of how powerful your rig is, you’ll need to clear a significant chunk of space on your SSD for all the legendary lords found in the game, 120GB to be exact.

There have been no official announcements in terms of new graphical features, but there’s still every possibility we could see Nvidia DLSS or AMD FSR debut in the series. For now, it’s probably best to prepare your rig for Creative Assembly’s last Warhammer hurrah by equipping your system with the best gaming CPU and best SSD for gaming that you can.

Here are the Total War: Warhammer 3 system requirements:

Minimum (720p/Low/30fps) Recommended (1080p/High/45fps)
OS Windows 7 64-bit Windows 10 64-bit
CPU Intel Core i3
AMD Ryzen 3
Intel Core i5
AMD Ryzen 5
GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 900
AMD Radeon RX 400
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti
AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT
Storage 120GB 120GB

Despite Windows 7 64-bit being supported, we’d strongly recommend upgrading to Windows 10 or 11 64-bit.
