Total War Three Kingdoms performance is one of the key factors behind many players' consideration on whether they should or shouldn't buy Creative Assembly's latest and greatest real-time strategy spectacle. Since Total War titles have always been very hardware-hungry, some of you are definitely wondering: "can I run it?".
It is a given that Three Kingdoms is extremely taxing on your machine at its highest settings, but can it scale to lower-end hardware, too? Could you, say, run the game on Intel HD 520? We've got a short analysis of official system requirements down below, so keep reading if you're intrigued.
Can I run Total War: Three Kingdoms?
When it comes to official minimum specs for Total War: Three Kingdoms, Creative Assembly have managed to optimise the game to - supposedly - run on a meager Intel UHD 620 integrated graphics processor. For reference, the older Nvidia GTX 1050ti is 470% faster than a UHD 620, according to stats, so keep that in mind as we go along.
According to Creative Assembly, Total War: Three Kingdoms will, at low settings and at 720p resolution, run at 25-35 FPS on most campaign missions, provided that you're attempting to play the game on a UHD 620, of course. This is pretty far from ideal, of course, but considering the fact that this graphics processor is very, very low end, chances are that your hypothetical mid-range rig could pull Three Kingdoms off in a respectable fashion.
We've provided a lenghty overview of the various low-ultra level PC specs provided by Creative Assembly, but we've also prepared a handy graphics option gameplay video so that you can check how the game looks at its worst compared to its very best.
If you're still on the fence when it comes to Three Kingdoms, watch the gameplay trailer we've prepared for you down below: it's running a huge battle at maximum graphics settings and a fairly stable framerate, thus proving that Three Kingdoms is, indeed, one of the technically most impressive games we've ever had the chance of playing.
