Total War: WARHAMMER II confirmed for Linux, to release later this year

Posted by , | Views: 7,769

Many of you I'm sure will be extremely happy about this, as today Feral Interactive confirmed Total War: WARHAMMER II is heading to Linux.

To celebrate, Feral have put this video out:

Released for Windows back in September of last year, we're getting it a little later than some may have wanted. However, silver lining as always that we don't need to deal with any big launch issues. Hopefully but now, it will be nicely polished.

“The race to control the Great Vortex adds a thrilling dimension to the campaign because every advance players make raises the stakes for their faction,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “Not only must players contend with rivals for the Vortex’s power, but also with the dire consequences of success – each time they increase their control over the Vortex, the monstrous forces of Chaos are released into their lands…”

No word on the date it will release, other than "later this year". Another fine choice for a port I must say, with it being one of the most popular games on Steam right now. Most likely with Vulkan too, as I highly doubt Feral Interactive will do any OpenGL ports now, which means it's likely to perform well.

This does seem to be the game that was teased as "Proud seat of lucifer", as that teaser is no longer on the Feral port radar.

If Feral could bring us some nice RPGs and more open-world action stuff later on in the year, that would be sweet.

YES!!! AT LAST!!!

Edit: oh.. kinda sad this was the "Proud seat of lucifer" though ..I guess they decided to reveal it because of the steam summer sales (I remember them saying that as long as a port gets announced they get a share, so maybe that is the reason - BUT not sure if this is the case with this port).

Same. Definitely was looking forward to this, but was also hoping that clue would be something else.

EDIT: I don't know, why they have it on radar as "Proud seat of lucifer".

Oh cool. I enjoyed the first, mostly, so will likely go for this one too.

Thank You Feral, I was hoping this would come to Linux at some point & now it is.

So what was the connection between the radar's clue and this game?

Again just another "Total War..." game. It will certainly be well ported. But I would have liked a game with a fresher game mechanics. The FI game selection is a bit "Total War"-heavy:
Total War: Warhammer II
Thrones of Britannia (A Total War Saga)
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III
Total War: Shogun 2
Total War: Warhammer
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Retribution
Total War: Medieval II
Total War: Empire

Goddamnit I just spent like 200$ on Linux games. And now I will have to spend 30$ more on TW2

No games on Linux my ass.

Very well Feral, now onto something more interesting from Sega. I hear those Yakuza games are amazing...

Oh yay, another TotalWar game..... Why even bother putting these on the feral radar.
