Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia confirmed for Mac

It’s official, Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia is coming to MacOS and Linux.

Developed by Creative Assembly, this is the first in the new Total War Saga series of standalone games inspired by great turning points of history. Thrones of Britannia for Mac is expected shortly after the Windows release, which should arrive on April 19, 2018.

These Saga games will be inspired by great turning points of history, and Thrones of Britannia, in particular, will embark you on a campaign of conquest from the highlands of Gaelic Scotland to the fields of Anglo-Saxon Kent. And with a little luck, this game could be good enough to upset our Top 10 MacOS strategy games roundup.

The game takes place in the British Isles in 878 AD, as Anglo-Saxons, Gaelic clans, and Viking settlers vie for supremacy. Combining huge real-time battles with deep turn-based strategy, Thrones of Britannia has everything you would expect from a Total War game.

Forge alliances, manage settlements, raise armies and embark on a campaign of conquest from the highlands of Gaelic Scotland to the fields of Anglo-Saxon Kent.

Thrones of Britannia on Mac: Everything you need to know

Creative Assembly has put Feral Interactive in charge of the MacOS version of the game. After all, Feral Interactive did an excellent job with every Total War game they have ported, including Warhammer.

The only two ports Creative Assembly handled itself were Rome 2 and Attila, and in both cases, performance was disappointing. I’m glad Creative Assembly realized decided to trust Feral and double down on their multi-platform efforts.

Price and system requirements will be revealed as the game approaches its final release date.

You can pre-order the game already, but as always, I suggest you wait until the final release. Delays are unfortunately not uncommon when it comes to ports.
