This game is going head to head with Total War and is doing a stand up job. They have added a bundle of new stuff into this stand alone expansion, a brand new campaign with 30+ hours of gameplay where you take the role of the Saxon king.
The campaign is set during the events of King Arthur: The Role-playing Wargame, but it follows a stand-alone story with a different ruler.
As you will see below, the system requirements have increased slightly over the first game but not by too much.
