Warhammer 40.000: Dawn of War III, out now for Linux

The video games for Gnu / Linux are not many. Although currently things are changing, the truth is that video game manufacturers still do not take into account Gnu / Linux users and few remember MacOS. But little by little this is changing.

Recently the Feral Interactive company, responsible for the Warhammer video game saga, has released a new title for Gnu / Linux and Mac OS. This video game it's called Warhammer 40.000: Dawn of War III. Warhammer 40.000: Dawn of War III is the third installment in the Warhammer 40.000 series. An installment of a real strategy video game that will be available for Debian-based distributions and for SteamOS.

Warhammer 40.000: Dawn of War III only works with Nvidia GPUs

The title can be purchased either through the Steam store or through the official Feral Interactive website. Despite being available for Gnu / Linux, Warhammer 40.000: Dawn of War III has a cost, a price of $ 59,9. But in this case, as in many other titles that exist for Windows, the price is worth it since the video game works as well as the video games for PlayStation 4 or for Windows 10. Even so, not all users will be able to make use of Warhammer 40.000: Dawn of War III on your computer.

For this video game to work we need to have a distribution that is Ubuntu 16.04 or equivalent (the latest version of Debian or derivatives can work), an Intel i3-4130 3.4 GHz processor, 8 GB of ram memory and 30 GB of internal storage. In addition, the computer has to use an Nvidia graphics card, ideally with the Nvidia 980Ti chip or higher and very important is to have the Nvidia driver version 375.66.

Warhammer 40.000: Dawn of War III does not support AMD or Intel GPUs, which is a big problem for those who use this GPU, but this is something that the company is trying to correct and may change in a few months. In any case, fans of the Warhammer saga will have no problem playing the latest video game and having a Free computer.

    Maybe you should know that AMD and Intel cards are not officially supported with Vulkan, although they are indeed ( https://jugandoenlinux.com/index.php/homepage/generos/estrategia/item/486-disponible-warhammer-40-000-dawn-of-war-iii-en-gnu-linux-steamos ). In the case of Intel it is rather anecdotal because the frame rate it allows makes it unplayable ( http://phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Intel-Vulkan-DoW-3 )
