Problem with early week releases, cannot play much lol

Yeah I never finished the White March, started playing that again last night and also have a bunch of saves from other classes.

Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia to be on Linux "one to two months" after the Windows release
2 May 2018 at 1:20 am UTC

No problem waiting, usually means we get patches and updates after initial release . Plus, lot of other games...

I could have sworn this morning I saw mention that there would be another Total War title for Linux/Mac by years end.

stretch611I have been on the fence about this one... I was afraid to spend $40(US) for a MMO only to find it too grindy.

While the previous comments did not mention grind, the amount of negativity here does push me on to the "don't bother" side of things. (Its not that they are extreme at all, but the number of people disliking the game for various reasons is a big turn off to the game.)

I would try the free demo, it's about 60% in reviews on Steam which is about fair (and considering that's Steam reviews).

The link is here, don't let others sway your opinion one way or another as I have made that mistake before:

If you like it be sure to move out of the starter and into the full world.

STiATI had backed this game back in the day, and it became pretty clear during the development process what it is: a ripoff. They sold all those things incredibly expensive during the development time.

Having played it, I personally dislike the combat system. I know that others enjoy it though.
The performance is simply crap (I tested in Linux and Windows).
Quests are broken (and not just some)
It is pay2win and has the ingame shop being incredibly expensive
Loading times are still ridiculous.

It's not pay2win at all, prove that it is. The sword and "weapons" have basic starter stats and generally get broken down to reshape an in-game crafted item, therefore they are cosmetic in nature. Yes a little expensive, however its a niche game and will likely remain that way.

Performance could be better, however I am finding it playable on good settings with an I5 4670, GTX 960 and 16GB RAM.

Good game overall with good potential to be better, although certainly not everyones cup of tea.

Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia has been delayed

Anders1232I see no problem in delaying it because they make great games, and if the delay is to polish mare the game it's worth it. I'm still waiting for the TW: Warhammer 2 GNU/Linux version.

Yes no update on WH2, so I don't know if it will ever come or just waiting for the DLC release cycle to ebb or just never to be released. Rome 2 also missing and I would have preferred Napealon over Empire TW personally.

FredOThey really should update their FAQ ( https://www.totalwar.com/blog/thrones-britannia-faq ). This will throw some people:


Will it be available on Mac/Linux?

We only have a release on Windows in our current plan.

Yes it will be for Linux, although we may have to wait a few days after the Windows release to get it.

Like the game a lot so far. My issue only is with Paradox games so far, they tend to be time sinks . I spent over 8 hrs last Sunday on Hearts of Iron IV in that "just a few minutes trap".

DrMcCoyThis was the game that was heavily dependant on real money purchases, right? You need to plop down real actual money for a lot, for a house, and then regularily to keep that house, the items you put in, on and around your house, etc pp

Yeah, pretty much. They liked the money model from original OSI and decided to multiply it by about... idk, 5x?

Yeah pretty wrong...

No, the real money for plots/houses is entirely voluntarily, although the incentive was/is the tax free portion of it. Taxes are in game gold, although there is an option to pay probably through COTO's. People have property without spending any real money, indeed with row houses etc and player towns if you want a place someone is likely to have a spot for you whilst you save to get a lot deed and then a house.

Houses can be crafted in game too...

Deep Sixed is another game that shows some promising early sales on Linux

Your coverage definitely helped with the purchase, that and the price . There was a game on the Amiga which this reminded me of, sadly I don't recall the name, but it involved fixing ships in a fleet (named after Henry VIII's wives if I recall), dinosaurs and a game breaking bug that they never fixed for us (sent in the disk and never heard back from them).
