Seriously, couldn't we call it Total Warhammer?

Total War: Warhammer 2 (a game I firmly believe should have been named "Total Warhammer") is the most pre-ordered Total War game in the history of the franchise. Understandable given that the marriage between Total War and Warhammer was pretty good the first time around. Now, with less than a month until release, the PC specs for Total War: Warhammer 2 have been released. Check below to see if your PC is up to snuff.

Total War: Warhammer 2 combines the RTS gameplay of the Total War franchise with the popular Warhammer RPG universe. The first Total War Warhammer game came out last year. Right now, the game is in the finishing stages of development and Creative Assembly is working on a host of graphical improvements for the sequel including a new volumetric fog system, and a new sharpening filter.

Our review of the first Total War: Warhammer called the game a "pretty good entry point" into the series, but also a "refreshing take" for longtime fans who might have gotten burnt out by the last several entries.

Total War: Warhammer 2 hits PCs on September 28.
