Total War: WARHAMMER II - The Silence & The Fury out now for Linux

By - | Views: 9,096

After a few weeks of waiting, porter Feral Interactive has updated Total War: WARHAMMER II to support The Silence & The Fury DLC along with the latest huge free update. Originally released on July 14, Feral ported it over to macOS on July 29 so we've had a bit of an extra wait here.

The Silence & The Fury introduces new Legendary Lords for the Lizardmen and the Beastmen, each leading their own factions with new characters and units, as well as unique gameplay mechanics and narrative objectives.

If you are signed up for Total War Access you'll also get some extra free content there too including the Great Bray Shaman and Ogre Mercenaries. Find out more about all of the free content and the DLC on the Total War blog post, with more detailed notes on the 1.12 update in another blog post. The free update is a big one but here's a brief overview of the free update overhauls:

The Beastmen update will keep their destructive, horde nature but allow them to temporarily settle down in a region around a herdstone. This forms the central theme of Taurox’s campaign to appease Chaos, but all Beastmen factions will be able to interact with them. Once the land around a herdstone has been razed and harvested for all the slaughter it can offer, the Beastmen will move on, leaving true destruction in their wake.

On the shorter side of things, the Dwarfs will be playable in the Vortex campaign thanks to the introduction of Thorek Ironbrow as a playable Legendary Lord in a Free-LC. Alongside this will come a general update that improves rune magic, new craftable runes, and unique legendary grudges for each Legendary Lord.

Feral also noted that the Linux update "Fixes a number of minor issues" but they didn't specify what.

You can buy Total War: WARHAMMER II from Humble Store, Steam and their own Feral Store.

In other Feral related news if you missed it, they cancelled A Total War Saga: TROY for Linux, citing less native title demand since Valve released Proton. We don't currently know the status of their Total War: WARHAMMER III port for Linux but it's still listed on their port radar for Linux so it's possible they may still do it. Update - TW: WIII is still being ported to Linux.

I went to Feral store to check prices and the base game still costs 60 €

Total war warhammer is the only game in the Total war franchise that I really like.

I exspect feral to port warhammer3. It is way more popular then Troy.
The steam deck could even boost their sale numbers if its day1 release. Both release dates are late 2021, that could line up pretty nicely.

It's not Feral's decision, though. They need to persuade game developers to give Feral a cut of the income in exchange for making a handcrafted artisanal boutique Linux/Mac version out of their Windows-only game and providing full support, rather than the game developer relying on Proton (which doesn't cost them any money) and telling their Linux customers to go stick their head in a pig if there are any problems. The lower the Linux market share, or the better Proton is perceived to be, the harder that persuasion is.

To the best of my knowledge, Feral buys the right to port the code and sell the result. So, it's of course still the publisher's decision, but it doesn't sound too dangerous.

With troy it sounded more like feral did not do the port because they saw no profit in it. And you can’t really blame them. 1 year later with no way to publish it on steam earlier.

I'm glad that Feral will port the TW: Warhammer 3. This makes me so happy :-)
