Total War: WARHAMMER II’s upcoming Vulkan-based macOS and Linux port will be releasing on November 20, as announced today by Feral Interactive. Originally developed by Creative Assembly and published by SEGA, the game launched for Windows via Steam in September last year.

Here are the minimum specifications required to run the game on Linux:

OS: Ubuntu 18.04 64-bit
Processor: Intel Core i3-4130 @ 3.4GHz
GPU: 2GB Nvidia GTX 680 or better, 2GB AMD R9 285 (GCN 3rd Gen) or better
Storage: 52GB

As for those on macOS, here’s a list of supported Mac models:

All 13" MacBook Pros released since 2016
All 15" MacBook Pros released since Late 2013 with a 2.3GHz processor or better
All 21.5" iMacs released since Late 2017
All 27" iMacs released since Late 2013 with a 2GB graphics card or better
Late 2012 models with a 2GB Nvidia 680MX graphics card are also supported
All 27" iMac Pros released since Late 2017
All Mac Pros released since Late 2013

Additionally, these Mac models are capable of running the game, but as per Feral, “do not consistently meet the standards required for official support”:

All 15" MacBook Pros released since Late 2013
All 21.5" iMacs released since Late 2013 with a 2.7GHz processor or better

Feral Interactive also ported the first game in the series – Total War: WARHAMMER – to Linux and macOS in 2016. At the time of its launch, the Linux port received a fair bit of criticism due to its inability to play multiplayer across platforms. It’s unclear whether this port will suffer with that same issue.

Steam is also strangely absent from the announcement of this port, with Feral directing those interested in pre-ordering the ported version to its own store. This means that those who have already purchased the game on Steam may not receive its Linux and macOS version automatically. We have reached out to Feral Interactive for clarification.

At the Feral Interactive store, Total War: WARHAMMER II is available for the price of $59.99. The DLCs – Curse of the Vampire Coast, Rise of the Tomb Kings, The Queen & The Crone, and Blood for the Blood God II – are also available for purchase separately.
