Linux News Today: Total War: ATTILA Arrives on Linux, AMD GPUs Not Supported
Total War: ATTILA is the latest titles in the Total War series and the game is now available on Steam for Linux as well.
The game was launched for Windows players all the way back in February 2015 and it looks like it took The Creative Assembly almost a year to release the game for Linux users as well. It looks like this is becoming a habit for the studio and quite a few Total War titles have made their way onto Steam for Linux.
“The next instalment in the multi award-winning PC series that combines turn-based strategy with real-time tactics, Total War: ATTILA casts players back to 395 AD. A time of apocalyptic turmoil at the very dawn of the Dark Ages. How far will you go to survive? Will you sweep oppression from the world and carve out a barbarian or Eastern kingdom of your own?” reads the Steam entry.
From the looks it, Total War: ATTILA wasn’t all that well received by the community. Players have criticized the AI and other aspects of the game, but maybe the Linux players will find it more attractive.
The recommended system requirements are quite substantial. Users will need at least Ubuntu 14.04 LTS or SteamOS Brewmaster update 2.49, an AMD FX 8350 or Intel i5-3570K processor, 8 GB of RAM, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 GPU, and 35 GB available space. As expected, the AMD and Intel GPUs are not supported and it’s not clear whether that will change anytime soon.
