this game is by no far demanding in any way try high settings and if your getting a 60 fps you can choose to raise up to max and see what you get there but chances of you running it are really good

You are able to run this game in max setting man, since its a tactical turn based strategy, FPS isn't really what you're looking for, although you are guaranteed to run the game smoothly most of the time :)

I think not, unless your OS isn't compatible with the game itself.
