A Total War Saga: THRONES OF BRITANNIA will officially get Linux and Mac support. Feral Interactive just announced the epic historical strategy games coming release. While Linux and Mac support will release shortly after the Windows launch on April 19th.
The games originally developed by Creative Assembly. And also published by SEGA for Windows. So LGC reached out to SEGA only to receive the following reply:
Any news regarding Linux support?
“We only have a release on Windows in our current plan.”
Since this was confirmed on February 1st, the day SEGA announced the launch of A Total War Saga: THRONES OF BRITANNIA. Alas, nothing in the plans via Creative Assembly and SEGA. Now Feral Interactive release news about a Linux and Mac port, over two weeks later.
While there is probably some reason for this delay. It would be great to see Feral Interactive working more closely with Creative Assembly and SEGA. Since we could be boasting Linux support, with the initial announcement.
A Total War Saga: THRONES OF BRITANNIA — Coming to Linux and Mac:
THRONES OF BRITANNIA is the first in the new Total War Saga series of standalone games. All taking inspiration by great turning points of history.

Combining huge real-time battles with engrossing turn-based strategy, THRONES OF BRITANNIA challenges players to build and defend a kingdom. Players will forge alliances, manage settlements, raise armies and embark on a campaign of conquest from the snowbound highlands of Gaelic Scotland to the green fields of Anglo-Saxon Kent.
“The choices players make in THRONES OF BRITANNIA’s campaigns have far-reaching consequences,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “As they make decisions in response to a sequence of seismic events, players will forge their own diverging paths through the turbulent years following King Alfred the Great’s initial victory over the Viking invasion.”
Also, we are waiting on news regarding cross-platform multiplayer. Since there is no explanation in the Feral press release details.
“THRONES OF BRITANNIA will release for Linux shortly after the Windows release on April 19th. We’ll confirm the final release date in a future announcement. Similarly, we’ll cover multiplayer and other features in future announcements leading up to release.”
