A Total War™ Saga: THRONES OF BRITANNIA officially out now for Linux, finally. So thanks to Feral Interactive we have native support for the epic historical strategy game. Which is finally out now on Linux via Feral Store, Steam and Humble Store.

Originally developed by Creative Assembly and published by SEGA for Windows. THRONES OF BRITANNIA is also the first in the new Total War Saga series of standalone games. Of course taking inspiration from great turning points of history.

THRONES OF BRITANNIA is set in the British Isles in 878 AD. While Anglo-Saxons, Gaelic clans, Welsh Kingdoms and Viking settlers vie for supremacy. Players will command one of ten factions, each with a unique branching narrative. This also develops as players respond to a series of seismic events.

Every choice a player make will have far-reaching consequences. This can also reshape history in unexpected and exciting ways.

The Grand Campaign offers multiple routes to a glorious Victory. Since you can aggressively expand your territory through force of arms. Acquire renown through construction, advanced technology and influence.

Or complete a series of unique objectives based on your chosen faction’s history. Also, once completee, steady yourself for a significant late-game challenge and the final, Ultimate victory condition.

Also there is detail coming about the next games in the series, Three Kingdoms. More on that in a later post. So for now, let’s relish in the wake of this new mayhem.

Out now on Steam, Feral Store, Humble Store:

THRONES OF BRITANNIA is available now from the Feral Store, Steam and Humble Store for $39.99/£29.99/€39.99. Which is also a bit surprising, since we do not have a release sale. Since Feral themselves would hopefully announce some sort of savings. But alas.
