Total War: WARHAMMER Released For Linux

Right on schedule, Feral Interactive has released Total War: WARHAMMER for Linux.

This is an OpenGL Linux port of the new game that was released for Windows back in May and later added a Direct3D 12 renderer. This turn-based strategy game is supported under Linux with both NVIDIA's official driver as well as using a bleeding-edge Mesa+LLVM RadeonSI driver stack with OpenGL but will sadly not see a Vulkan port. Feral's Mac port of this game is using Apple's Metal API, but won't see a release until early 2017 due to the additional time porting.

Total War: WARHAMMER is currently priced at $59.99 USD on Steam. More details on the Linux game port via the Feral mini site.

If the game's Linux port has an automated-friendly benchmark mode that meets my testing requirements, I'll be posting some NVIDIA+RadeonSI benchmarks of this game on Phoronix shortly with many different graphics cards.
