A Total War Saga: THRONES OF BRITANNIA will releasing on Linux tomorrow. All thanks to Feral Interactive, who announced details about the coming historical strategy game. So yes, we will have a Linux build on June 7th.
While 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. Taking inspiration from great turning points in 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.
So 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 players make has far-reaching consequences that reshape history. Doing so in unexpected and exciting ways.
Combining huge real-time battles with engrossing turn-based strategy. THRONES OF BRITANNIA challenges players to build and defend a kingdom. While players forge alliances, manage settlements and raise armies. Them embark on a campaign of conquest from the snowbound highlands of Gaelic Scotland to the green fields of Anglo-Saxon Kent.
