Good news for anyone wanting to play either Total War Shogun 2 or Fall of the Samurai as the specs have been released for the Linux versions.

Minimum
  • 2GHz processor
  • SteamOS 2.0 / Ubuntu 16.04 or later
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 1GB Nvidia 600 series / AMD 6000 series / Intel Iris Pro

Recommended
  • 3GHz processor
  • SteamOS 2.0 / Ubuntu 16.04 or later
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 2GB Nvidia 700 series / AMD R7 series graphics card or better

NVIDIA users need driver version 375.26 or later. AMD and Intel need Mesa 17.1.

Really awesome to know all major GPU vendors will be supported on Linux, but it's not surprising considering how far Mesa has come in such a short amount of time.

Not long to wait as the games release for Linux on May 23rd! See their news post for more.

So, was it Made to Wade or not? I don't see it on their radar anymore. For me it's something I'll again skip, since it's Steam only. I hope it's not Feral's attitude towards using DRM that's causing them to release only through Steam, but so far they consistently do only that (I suppose by picking publishers who require it).

Hmm... first Feral game where my old toaster is over the hardware requirements - this lacks the usual excitement somehow ;-)

There's a SteamOS 2.0? When did that happen?

Will have to try one of my old S478 Celerons...

Made to Wade was DoW 3 , Spicey entry was Shogun.

That is their business model , selling Steam keys via their store.

Such business model doesn't stop them from selling keys through any store (GOG and Humble also offer keys functionality for instance). I start suspecting it's rather their attitude towards DRM that's causing them to do it, or it's not about DRM but they have some Steam exclusivity deal going on. From what I've heard though, Valve claim they don't make such deals, but I'm not convinced.

To clarify, this is not about why Feral don't release titles they already ported outside of Steam. Those titles are owned by publishers who don't release DRM-free, so it's not up to Feral. It's about why Feral pick only such titles to begin with (this is up to them already).

I have to admit that I could accept an exclusive DRM/download manager made by Feral for the Feral Linux/Mac ports sold at Feral store because they must take care of their investment...
In other words, I can accept a Feral ecosystem exclusivity for their Linux ports, but I don't accept the steam ecosystem exclusivity.

Maybe their ports are subsidized by Valve... That could explain the Steam exclusivity..


Shmerl commented on 19 May 2017 at 6:01 pm UTC

I wouldn't mind buying in Feral store, if they'll offer games there DRM-free. They don't however, they simply sell Steam keys now. I'd accept them selling keys for DRM-free stores, but that's not the case either, like explained above.

Something isn't straight here. I doubt it's a coincidence.
