Total War: Rome II is heading to PC in September, so that should give you enough time to start clearing some space on your hard drive — you’re gonna need it.

The Creative Assembly, which is developing the strategy title, revealed the PC specifications required to enjoy Total War: Rome II today. Most of it is pretty standard except for the amount of free space required on the hard drive.

Total War: Rome II needs at least 35GB to install. That’s the minimum. Things might start getting really out of hand if The Creative Assembly begins releasing expansions.

The strategy title has players controlling the ancient Roman Republic, which they can transform into the Roman Empire based on what strategy they choose. It’s split between turn-based nationwide strategy gameplay and real-time tactical combat.
