Total War: Warhammer charges onto Mac
We're already in the long run-up to the launch of Total Warhammer 2 later this year but hey! Wait! Hold on! The portpeeps at Feral Interactive today tidied up a loose end of the first Total Warhammer [official site], releasing a Mac version. That means users of Windows, Mac OS, and Linux-based personal cogitators can now totally get hammered and get their war on in some kind of fantasy.
In that pleasing modern way, if you already owned Twarhammer on Steam, you've got it for Mac too. Remember when ports used to be sold separately? Wild times! Of course, no one minded because you could get two copies of Max Payne, a Marathon bar, two tickets for Star Wars: Attack of the Clones - and still have change from a shilling. I've been studying you old people, you know.
Unlike olden dayes, this Mac release actually comes after the Linux port. Twarhammer got jacked full of penguins back in November 2016. The two ports were announced alongside the Windows edition but it's taken a while to wrap up these loose ends. It takes a lot of apples to power a computer, you know. Steve Jobs should have considered lemons or potatoes - they make better batteries.
Twarhammer 2 is due at some unknown point later this year. It's jaunting off to new lands to hang out with the Lizardmen, High Elves, Dark Elves, and a yet-unconfirmed fourth race. Folks will tell you it's Skaven because the announcement trailer shows a creepy rat but ignore them, it's just a rat, and nothing and no one is burrowing beneath you, crawling through your walls, hiding just out of sight ready to gush forth in a verminous torrent. It's just a rat. Don't sweat it. Don't tell anyone. Twarhammer 2 will also let players who own both games play on a campaign map with both regions.
