Total War: Attila Can't be Maxed on Current Hardware

 

Total War has had a shaded history, with each iteration being very demanding for the systems of the time, with many of them being filled with bugs and other player issues at launch. Looking back to Rome II release in 2013 I myself remember having major difficulties maintaining a high framerate and encountering so many issues before completing a single campaign. Thankfully most of these issues have now been fixed, but this has made this long time fan of the series hold off on pre-ordering Attila.

Creative assembly themselves have now stated that the game will be more demanding than previous Total War titles, with the maximum graphics presets being too demanding for today's GPU hardware. it is no doubt that Total War: Attila is a pretty game, but when will PC gamers be able to see it in it's full glory?

 

Total War: Attila Can't be Maxed on Current Hardware  

In Total War: Attila there will be 5 quality presents that you can select, though I would advise players to use the ‘Advanced’ options and tweak the game to your liking. The 5 presets are detailed below.

 

  • 1. ‘Max Performance’ – integrated chipsets and older cards
  • 2. ‘Performance’ – low end cards
  • 3. ‘Quality’– mid range cards
  • 4. ‘Max Quality’ – high end cards
  • 5. ‘Extreme Quality’ – future cards – no card is set to this out of the box

Here are the Minimum and recommended specs for Total War: Attila, we will remind you here that the recommended spec is not for Maxing out the game at 1080p but for the "Quality" preset at 1080p. These system requirements are for PC, please go to Steam for the OS X requirements for the game.

 

MINIMUM:

    • OS: Windows Vista* 
    • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 3 GHz 
    • Memory: 3 GB RAM 
    • Graphics: 512 MB NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT, AMD Radeon HD 2900 XT or Intel HD 4000 
    • DirectX: Version 10 
    • Hard Drive: 35 GB available space 
    • Additional Notes: PC integrated graphics chipsets require 64 bit Windows, e.g. Intel HD series.

 

RECOMMENDED:

    • OS: Windows 7* 
    • Processor: 2nd Generation Intel Core i5 
    • Memory: 4 GB RAM 
    • Graphics: 2 GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti or AMD Radeon HD 5870 
    • DirectX: Version 11 
    • Hard Drive: 35 GB available space 
    • Additional Notes: PC integrated graphics chipsets require 64 bit Windows, e.g. Intel HD series.

 

To summarise, Total War: Attila Can't be Maxed out on Current Hardware, Creative Assembly say that the game is going to be "more demanding" than Rome II with the maximum quality setting is designed for "future cards", but how long in the future will this be?. Months or years?

Let's hope the game still looks impressive on current hardware, and isn't full of bugs at launch.

Next-next gen knowing CA, hopefully things have improved on the CPU side. TW really needs DX12 and/or mantle support.Quote

So in short CA have found a way of giving their refusal to optimise games a positive PR spin...Quote

Basically translates to "we can't be arsed to release proper 4k textures so we'll just pretend nothing can run it".

If they magically leave the settings in, there is one forum member who can test their statement Quote

I think I may have something that can run it.

If this is anything like RTW2 the fault is entirely with the game devs who took ages before it was possible to run it on multi GPU setups.Quote
