Thinking of getting this, unsure about my PC though.

I know i meet there system requirements, that's obvious, but there the most generic requirements ever, i seriously hate when recommenced requirements wont play the game well at medium-high settings and i'v been burned before. Im running a 6970 with a i5 2500k and 8 gigs DDR3 and Shogun still lags in places for me, so im skeptical about this running good. I was wondering if they have demoed the game at all on slightly older hardware and mentioned what kind of settings people might get.

I actually didn't get to into Shogun, the setting was cool but i know very little of feudal Japan and had little interest in its history so it didn't hook me like previous games, i really enjoyed Empire though and loved Rome before it (never played medieval). Anyways thanks.

I believe they've said that it will run about as well as Shogun 2 on similar hardware. Can't remember where I heard that, so it might be completely false, or it might just be that the minimum specs are about the same. Those kind of statements are usually pretty meaningless anyway, especially from when coming from developers who want as many people as possible to buy the game. I'd assume you'd be fine on medium-high, but if you want to be safe you're probably going to have to wait for a day or so after launch to see what people with various hardware are experiencing.

Try Rome 2 on the list here and see whether you pass the tests. What's worth mentioning is that CA has boasted about Rome 2 being more friendly to lower end systems than Shogun 2 was

@funkydupe: Yea, that thing just says i pass and maxes out the meter because like i said there generic requirements, i wish they would say a recommended card.

Most Total War games scale down pretty well. Feudal Japanese history is a lot more interesting than medieval history, more interesting than most elements of Roman History; just from a pure military standpoint.

Might be, i prefer Rome for a game though, larger scale then Japan.
