Do not adjust your monitors, you read that correctly. Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II, Chaos Rising and Retribution are officially coming to Linux and will be released on September 29th [Feral Mini-site].
The port is being done by Feral Interactive, so it will have their usual great spit and polish on it.
Yes, AMD is supported:
Minimum Linux system requirements call for a 2.0 GHz CPU with at least 4GB RAM, 1GB or better graphics card, and SteamOS 2.0 or Ubuntu 16.04 or better. The game also requires an NVIDIA 6xx/AMD 6xxxx/Intel Iris Pro series graphics card or better.
Note: Multiplayer is Linux+Mac, it will not be cross-platform with Windows.
All three are standalone games and don't depend on each other, so you can buy one or all. Pretty great to see all three get released at the same time!
Chaos Rising takes place one year after the events of Dawn of War II, and is set on Aurelia, long-lost home world of the Blood Ravens. Players once again take command of the Blood Ravens in order to free the planet from the forces of Chaos.
Retribution takes place ten years after Chaos Rising and presents a new threat to the Imperium of Man in which players may command any one of six races in a campaign that ranges across all the planets of sub-sector Aurelia.
In addition to their imaginative single-player campaigns, all three games feature highly-accomplished multiplayer in which players can either plunge into skirmish mode or team up with others in The Last Stand, a cooperative survival mode.
