Hot on the heels of their Deus Ex: Mankind Divided announcement, Feral Interactive just released Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2 for Mac and Linux.
Update: You will probably want to check out the new and improved Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 3.
The classic real-time strategy game, along with the Chaos Rising and Retribution expansions, was released today, September 29.
Developed by Relic Entertainment for Windows, Dawn of War games are some of the most famous strategy games ever created. When it was first released, Dawn of War 2 became an instant classic because of the great graphics and the way it combined real-time strategy with role-playing elements.
