Total War: Warhammer 2 on Mac: Everything you need to know
Feral Interactive is in charge of the game’s MacOS and Linux versions, and if the latest Total War Saga is any indication, you can expect a solid Mac port powered by Metal 2.
As with any Total War game, Warhammer 2 features turn-based empire building and real-time tactical battles pitting massive armies full of heroes, spellcasters, and dragons against each other. The campaign picks up after the original Warhammer’s campaign and will take your armies through jungles, deserts, savannahs and icy mountains.
The game has been out for a while on Windows and critics and players all agree: this is an excellent strategy game. The game has an impressive 87 Metascore and 80% Very Positive user reviews on Steam.
