Feral Interactive just announced that the Medieval II: Total War Collection will be released for Linux (and OS X) this week.

The Medieval II: Total War Collection is set to be released on Thursday, 14 January. Feral's press release notes, "The Medieval II: Total War Collection combines thrilling real-time battles and sophisticated turn-based strategy in a vast campaign that spans five centuries and encompasses the Crusades, the spread of plague and the proliferation of gunpowder. As a warrior king, players will lead one of 17 factions to supremacy in the medieval world with an artful mix of diplomacy, commerce and war...The Medieval II: Total War Collection contains the Kingdoms expansion, which includes four standalone campaigns: Discovery of the Americas, Britannia, Crusades, and the Teutonic Campaign."

The collection will cost $24.99 USD on Steam and elsewhere.

As some good news for open-source driver users, it appears there is support for Radeon and Intel graphics when using Mesa 11.2 Git! Feral mentioned, "The game also requires an NVIDIA 600 series+ with Driver Version 352.55, AMD R7 with Mesa 11.2 driver, and Intel Iris Pro with Mesa 11.2 driver. AMD GPUs may require Ubuntu 15.10 or later. The Mesa 11.2 driver is still in active development."
