Industry, can you please provide guidance for people who run Windows on a VM.  Will your game run on a top of the end macbook pro running VMWare fusion? Bad enough you only develop for PCs.

35 GIG, men, I remember when games use to be megabytes. But I can't wait for this awesomeness!!!

ClintCommander

I remember trying to explain to people how going to digital only would be a pain partly because of how big games are going to get.  Some people were saying things like 'games won't get that much bigger blah bleh blah'. 

35 gigs!? I'm extremely excited for that kind of content, but that's more than one-third of my data cap!

@Thompson135 Definitely low graphics setting. If you want more good experience playing this game you must buy another more high spec computer.

@falconhoof87 

I have just about the same rig as you, except I only have 750 gigs of space. Should run fine.

@Damcek I'm pretty sure you'll be able to run the game just fine, however you should upgrade your RAM.  Go to this site, http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri and type in Rome II.  This site is great for helping you see if you can play games on your PC.  Let me know if this helps.

@bankei  recommended specs are a quad core - core i5 is quad.  Minimum specs are dual core.

@bankei no need for quad cores, just get dual core or 1.CA won;t support quad cores.

@nzag1971 this is no movie. If you'd played any previous total war game you would know that

@ahmed74 Direct your hatred elsehwere. Total War is one of the most beloved franchises of PC, and the developer (Creative Assembly) focuses almost entirely on this fantastic franchise and RTS genre.

@stefanoskalt What do you mean with "wont support" quad cores. Will i still be able to play or do you mean it wont run so good?

JeffreyCor

@DeKuip Yes you can and just fine. Supported is meant in terms of how many the engine will make use of.
