Total War: THREE KINGDOMS gained a huge DLC expansion with Mandate of Heaven last month and now the Linux version has been updated to include support for it too.
Feral Interactive, who ported the game from original developer Creative Assembly, sent word today the Linux port has been updated with support for Mandate of Heaven. This new Chapter Pack depicts the events of the Yellow Turban Rebellion, enabling players to engage in the conflict from either rebel or loyalist perspectives.
What to expect from Mandate of Heaven:
- Begin a campaign in 182 CE just before the Yellow Turban rebellion…
- …Then play through the conflict and deep into the Three Kingdoms period
- New characters and six new playable warlords including the Zhang brothers and Emperor Ling
- Unique new campaign mechanics, events and objectives
- 40 new battlefield units and new unit abilities
- Play the origin stories of legendary characters such as Cao Cao and Liu Bei
Today we didn't just get DLC support though, we also got bumped up the patch list too. The Linux version of Total War: THREE KINGDOMS now incorporates all the changes from the huge 1.4 patch and the fixer-upper 1.4.1 patch after. The big 1.4 patch gives players a bunch of free additions to the game as well, which you can read more about here.
Great to see Feral Interactive continue to support probably one of the best Total War titles, and quite possibly one of the best strategy games available on Linux. It has a "Very Positive" rating on Steam from well over thirty thousand people so you don't need to take just my word for it and in our contributor BTRE's thoughts post, he said it was "an attractive and well-rounded game".
