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

Posted by , | Views: 11,436

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.

Anyone knows if this one will have crossplatform multiplayer with Windows users?

Highly doubtful, for the exact same reason as the other games.

Now Feral can put the same teaser back up for their next Radar Teaser - Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice - seeing as it matches the clue so well. =P

I have been looking forward to this! TW1 is good, but it seems TW2 is better, shame it takes so long to get, but it is what it is.

Understand people wanting something different, hopefully we'll get that too.

Thanks Feral. Will buy it despite I'm not a big fan of Total War games.

Could you please port Middle Earth Shadow of War ?

Probably NO, like the previous ports. So multi only between Linux / Mac.

Total War ports from Feral Interactive doesn't contain that. Only Total War Attila on Linux have that , which was a port done in-house by Creative Assembly.

Also , GOG games are have that too.

Good to know. Are you basing that on first hand knowledge? (do you own the game fe).

I'm quite surprised Valve hasn't made any statement about this. They could for example check any releases for those files though I'd imagine it would raise questions about other titles that use something else. Sayyy.. valves own crashreporter. Guess policing porn means more LUL.

Good. Now it will be possible to play the multigame campaign Mortal Empires on Linux... I hope.
