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.

I never doubted for a moment that Warhammer II would come to Linux, considering how well the first part (and its DLCs) sold. This confirmatiom is very welcome in any case.

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

I hope for this too as I already own the first game.

fabry92Too much total wars.... Who the hell buy all this chapters wtf

The number of strategy games on Linux is really impressive. By far the most represented group...

Too bad i'm not really into this kind of games.

Amazing. I love Total War, and especially the Warhammer games. I finally bought TW: Warhammer 2 a few weeks ago - for Windows - because I had given up hope they'd bring this to Linux. Will Feral still get any money once I will start playing this on Linux?

Afraid they likely won't, especially since your purchase was before even the announcement, by now it would have likely have already been credited to the Windows dev. Nevermind, there's always Feral's next game or possibly some DLC you can buy for it when it's release for Linux, to play on Linux ;)

Just to say that this announcement encouraged me to finally buy Total War: Warhammer -- the first one -- on Steam. Looking forward for getting the second one on the next sales!

"Many of you I'm sure will be extremely happy about this" You're not wrong, I'm really happy its been announced and can't wait for this and the Tomb Kings DLC.
