Developer and game porter Feral Interactive announced today that the Total War: THREE KINGDOMS - Fates Divided DLC is now supported in the Linux version.
Fates Divided brings a host of new faction mechanics, start dates, objectives and reworked systems to existing lords from the base game and previous Chapter Packs. Released simultaneously, a free update also introduces Liu Yan’s new cross-generational faction into the fray, with two unique units of their own and a brand new succession mechanic.
We also now have the big 1.7.0 update available now too, which brings in quite a lot of overall changes to the game. Here's some highlights:
- Imperial Intrigue and changes to the Emperor
- Schemes faction mechanic for Cao Cao
- Captain armoury mechanic for Yuan Shao
- New faction council
- New expanded faction ranks
- New legendary characters
- A plethora of bug fixes
The update that's out now for Linux also makes "a number of additional improvements and minor bug fixes".
You can buy it on the Feral Store directly or Steam for $9.99 / £7.99 / €9.99.
If you missed other recent news from Feral Interactive they will also be porting Total War: WARHAMMER III to Linux and they also recently announced Total War: ROME REMASTERED with cross-platform multiplayer.
Quoting: GuestI guess that as usual with Feral Interactive, DRM-free will never be an option?
To be fair, the choice unfortunately isn't Feral's, it's Creative Assembly's.
BTW the Rakarth Update for TW:WH2 seems to have dropped for us as well. Certainly beats the usual wait.
I have to say, Feral's been on top of it lately. I gladly pre-ordered Rome Remastered, as they've clearly made it a labor of love and I never usually pay full price! Feral's ports are the reason I fully committed to Linux full-time in '15-16 in the first place, the advent of proton is great, but it'll never replace the feel of having something running natively on my system.
Now all I need is a remaster of Sid Meier's Pirates! and I'll be over the moon!
Quoting: GuestQuoting: redneckdrowTo be fair, the choice unfortunately isn't Feral's, it's Creative Assembly's.Not a single Linux port done by Feral Interactive has ever been available DRM-free, even when the Windows version of the game is not tied to DRM schemes. So I find it a bit hard to believe they would have nothing to do with it.
Which ports don't have DRM on windows? Even the cd versions of older Total War games had rather draconian DRM, before Steam was even a thing! As for non TW games, I wouldn't know. DRM is quickly becoming superfluous these days, with piracy being almost a bygone practice. I view it as unnecessary, but I'll buy a game as long as the DRM isn't annoying (being from the era of the "what is word 56 on manual page 222" makes me feel that way) if it supports Linux well regardless.
Quoting: GuestMad Max had Denuvo at launch as well. DRM-free release came later.Quoting: GuestQuoting: redneckdrowWhich ports don't have DRM on windows?Based on their list of ports from Wikipedia:
- Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
- Life Is Strange + Before the Storm
- Mad Max
- Saints Row 2
- XCOM: Enemy Unknown
- XCOM 2 + War of the Chosen
Can't speak for the others, but at release Deus Ex: Mankind Divided had Denuvo. It most definitely had DRM on Windows.
