Total War: WARHAMMER III has just been formally announced by SEGA / Creative Assembly and the good news is that porter Feral Interactive have right away confirmed it's being supported on Linux (and macOS).

"The cataclysmic conclusion to the Total War: WARHAMMER trilogy is coming. Rally your forces and step into the Realm of Chaos, a dimension of mind-bending horror where the very fate of the world will be decided. Will you conquer your Daemons… or command them?"

For the Linux release date, usually it's a little while later but in this case it seems Feral may have been pulled in earlier than usual as Creative Assembly noted it will be available "as close to launch day as possible" with the exact date to be confirmed closer to launch which will be this year 2021. They also confirmed that it will be on the Epic Store but this time (like TROY did) it's not going to be exclusive at all.

What races will be in it? Creative Assembly mentioned it will have "a wider selection of individual races than any previous Total War: WARHAMMER core title" and "the four Ruinous Powers of Nurgle, Slaanesh, Tzeentch, and Khorne prepare for war and two mighty kingdoms stand sentinel: the stern warriors of Kislev and the vast empire of Grand Cathay".

Once we get more confirmed features and info we will let you know.

You can wishlist / follow on Steam. You can pre-purchase which gives an additional free Race Pack that more details will be given on "soon".

Update: Feral Press replied to our question about cross-platform online support, as traditionally their ports are locked for Linux/macOS together and Windows by itself. Here's what they said:

We do not have anything to announce in regards to the support of the cross-platform multiplayer.

Should the situation change, we will make an announcement on our official site and social media channels.

For a moment I thought it was the Vermitide series...
I'm really pleased Feral is porting this, I cannot wait!
Ahh the advantages of using the same engine for everygame means you can get the port of the latest release done very quickly and a minimium cost win win for CA and Fereal
Feeling the hype !!!!! :D

At this point, wouldn't Creative Assembly just buy Feral ?

As much as i would like to support Feral, they release way too many Total War games, which are not my kind of game. Wish they did something else instead. Anyway, Feral and Linux is always welcome.

I mean, everyone knows that there are only ordersome Dwarves and that Dwarves would never succumb to Chaos, so.... no idea what you are talking about.

I've never been a fan of the total war series up until I tried warhammer 2 and got hooked. Still playing it to this day. It's a huge time sink but they really get fantasy right.

It's the only game that catches the scale and feeling of the lotr movie battles.

The dlc cash grab is a bit off-putting but it's easy to look the other way since it's a quality product.

Hoping more warhammer 2 dlcs will go on sale in a mega complete bundle or something.
