King Arthur 2 system requirements have been finalised. King Arthur II - The Role-playing Wargame is described as a blend of RPG and strategy. Think Medieval Total war with magic and mythical beasts thrown in and you will get the idea.
The first KA - RPG wargame was a hit and with the publishing guys from Paradox we can expect a great sequel. We are currently poutting together our review now, but in the mean time lets take a look at King Arthur 2 system requirements...

Pretty serious recommended requirements for KA2.
But I have said it before and I will say it again, this is a great thing for the PC gaming platform. For the moment gaming progression on the PCs is held back largely by the lowly specs of the consoles. Let me explain, developers from the big publishing houses dare not risk releasing a big title on just the PC, but must make sure it meets the performance power of the weaker consoles in order to make enough sales to turn a profit.
This is of course acceptable practice but as PC gamers we need to back games like King Arthur 2, because they are brought out for PC only and will push the platform to its limits. This forces the rest of the industry to take notice and console gamers start to head back towards the PC market in order to play the best looking modern games.
Whats easier for us to get behind our platform in this case is that King Arthur 2 is going to be an awesome game and worthy of any strategy/fantasy fans attention.
