Feral Interactive have now ported over all the changes from the Total War: WARHAMMER III v5.0 update, along with support for the new Thrones of Decay DLCs. The update and 3 DLCs were released on April 30th, with the Linux port being updated today - pretty good turnaround from Feral there which is nice to see for one of their last Native Linux ports.

The Thrones of Decay pack is actually 3 DLC, which you can buy together or individually. The Thrones of Decay pack introduces 3 new Legendary Lords, for Nurgle, the Empire, and the Dwarfs, usable in both the Realm of Chaos and Immortal Empires campaigns. Launch trailer below:

The 5.0 patch notes are pretty long but some of the highlights include:

  • Both Empire and Dwarf have had a full sweep of their building trees to bring them up to date.
  • Remastered and remade some of the old frontend videos for a variety of Legendary Lords.
  • Gotrek and Felix have been reworked so that both of them are now legendary heroes.
  • Ironman Mode.
  • Lots and lots of bug fixes, various balance changes, UI updates and so on.

If you have a linked Creative Assembly account then update 5.0 also adds an extra free Legendary Lord for the Nurgle race, Epidemius.

You can buy the game and various DLC from:

"Incorporates 3rd-party DRM: Denuvo Anti-tamper"

While i'm glad it has a native Linux version this will be a pass for me.

I think it does not on Linux, only on Windows.

Yup, that's why we don't always get feature parity.

I think Denuvo is more of a feature parody.

I'm having great fun with Thrones of Decay. It's one of the best DLC's CA have done in years. Very high quality through and through. The game runs very well with Proton.

I hate that I love this pun of yours.

Well, looks like my long running save is screwed now. Also had a bunch of visual glitches (and a segfault) after update, but, that might be from my old save. Given I had conquered about half of the map in Immortal Empires, I feel rather disincentived to play much more if my saves are trash after updates.

I am sorry that you lost your save, but at the same time amazed of what Creative Assembly can get away with, and yet the player base remains stable or growing...
