Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War, the first 4x strategy game in the Warhammer universe is set to arrive on July 12th with Linux support. Developed by Proxy Studios, who're known for the 4x game Pandora: First Contact (which I thought was quite good).

On top of that, they've also announced the you can now pre-order the game on Steam. Of course, we never recommend pre-ordering, but it's there for those who like to show their early support for Proxy Studios continuing to support Linux.

About the game:

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War brings you to a world of terror and violence. Four factions will engage in a brutal war for dominance over the planet’s resources. 

In the first 4X turn-based strategy game set in Warhammer 40,000 you will lead one of four factions: Astra Militarum, Space Marines, Orks and Necrons, each with their own unique gameplay, technological tree, units and heroes. 

Face a challenging AI or cooperate or compete with friends and strangers across the globe.

I'm pretty keen to see how the setting will lend itself to a 4x game, likely quite well and it certainly does look good. Likely one I will take a proper look at around the release.

I'm definitely going to wait for detailed impressions with this one.

It's almost implied. Total War: Warhammer 1 is available for Linux, other modern Total War titles like Total War: Attila and Total War: Shogun 2 too, and TW: Warhammer DLCs work on Total War: Warhammer II. The two games complement each other, and the developers even said something [url="https://www.totalwar.com/blog/total-war-warhammer-ii-coming-soon"]vague about plans for Linux[/url]:
"Will It be released on Mac and Linux from release?
Plans for Mac & Linux versions will be announced later in the year."

Total War: Warhammer I took about a year to get a Linux port, Total War: Warhammer II is less than a year old. So yeah, I still think it's possible they make a port.

I still have my fingers crossed for a port, I think it would make sense as Feral have already ported the first game and got the game engine to work on Linux, they could also port TW: WH3 to recoup some of the engine porting costs, plus theres all the DLC.

It's coming out on GOG too, but it doens't seem to be made by Feral.
