Published On April 11, 2017 | By Kirk Hiner | Macintosh

There are many reason why one would be interested in the Mac version of Total War: Warhammer when it’s released for macOS on April 18th. The obvious two are that it’s Total War, and that it’s Warhammer, but that applies to all gamers. Specific to us Mac gamers, the macOS version sill be powered by Apple’s new graphics API—metal—and that could make it a thing of beauty.

Developed for Windows PC by Creative Assembly in partnership with Games Workshop, and published by SEGA, Total War: Warhammer is a fantasy strategy game that…

… combines an addictive turn-based campaign of skillful empire-building with explosive real-time battles as players strive to conquer all at the head of one of four mythic Races.

The deep and rich universe of Warhammer opens a new era for Total War by taking the series into a magical realm of grand high fantasy. Gigantic monsters, flying dragons, legendary heroes and regiments of nightmarish warriors all take their place on the bloody battlefields of Warhammer’s Old World.

You know Total War, after all, from Shogun, Medieval, and other popular historical iterations, and now fans of the series will get to wage epic battles across fantasy landscapes. And it won’t end here; Total War: Warhammer is just the first in this new trilogy of standalone titles, with this chapter alone offering hundreds of hours of gameplay even before the inevitable expansion packs are factored in.

Total War: Warhammer will be available April 18th through the Feral Store, Steam, and the Mac App Store, and system requirements will be announced very soon. In the meantime, you can learn more about the game at
