The high fantasy universe of WARHAMMER is coming to one of the biggest strategy game series of all times. Total War: WARHAMMER will be the very first chapter of the series to feature a fantasy settings, and what better universe to pick than Games Workshop’s legendary world.
Incredible campaign mode, four completely different races, breathtaking world full of detail, Legendary Lords joining the fray, powerful magics at works – Total War: Warhammer promises spectacular gameplay and already gathers fantastic reviews. Eurogamer.net just called it “a godly blend of franchises”. We couldn’t agree more.
Total War: WARHAMMER from Creative Assembly is another major 2016 release to feature a DirectX 12 renderer. Latest API support will be added to the game shortly after the release, and it’s worth the wait. What does that bring to the table? Let’s hear directly from the studio’s own Charlie Dell, the Technical Director of Total War:
The three most important DirectX 12 features for us are Asynchronous Compute, Multithreading and MultiGPU support. One of the advantages of DX12 is that it enables Async Compute. This allows us to take systems such as our particle system and sorting tasks in parallel with the GPU on the main rendering pipeline. These parallel tasks or so-called spare GPU cycles allow us to extract the maximum performance out of the hardware.
In Total War: WARHAMMER we have several parts of our pipeline running in compute shaders. A few examples are the particle simulations, screen space ambient occlusion (SSAO), directional light – all these compute shader parts are running as Async Compute in parallel with others like shadow maps, G-Buffer pass, UI.
