Total War: Warhammer released for Windows in May 2016, to excellent reviews and a very favourable fan reception. It wasn’t entirely unexpected, given the love that exists for both the venerable Total War strategy battle simulation series and Games Workshop’s dice-driven combat, but credit where credit’s due.
Although developed by Creative Assembly and originally published by Sega on the Windows platform, publisher Feral Interactive have picked up the baton to bring Total War: Warhammer Mac and Linux versions to market. Already a big game to begin with, at roughly 50 hours to complete – the biggest game in the Total War series – the extra time since the Windows release will mean that a huge swathe of DLC content will also be available in time for the Total War: Warhammer Mac and Linux releases, which is nice.
“This is the stuff of dreams,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive, “The extraordinary gameplay of Total War matched with the fantastical universe of Warhammer is a match made in gaming heaven. We’re incredibly excited to bring Total War: Warhammer to Mac and Linux.”
There’s no firm release date or price yet associated with the Total War: Warhammer Mac and Linux, but we’re expecting to see it sometime in autumn 2016. Given that it’s already the start of August, that can’t be long.
I’m still waiting for confirmation of a Total War: Warhammer 40,000, though; I love me some Space Marines vs. Chaos action.
