    Did you hear that Feral Interactive is finally bringing Total War: Warhammer to Mac on April 18?

    And it will be their second game (after F1 2016) to use Apple's Metal API. Hope it turns out great!

    Also looking forward to this. Just hoping it runs well on my 460m. Yet one less reason to boot into windows!

    Bit annoyed at how much more expensive it is on MAS than Steam.

    Why not buy it on steam then? (Genuine question, I am not being facetious) I have it on steam already as I currently use boot camp to play it

    That's what I've done. I just would have preferred not to have to have Steam running at the same time, taking up resources.

    To be fair it runs very smoothly on Ultra at 1680x1050. Full res 3360x2100 struggles though (even at lower quality) but that's no great loss.

    Just FYI, no matter how hard Apple tries to convince us otherwise, "full res" on the current 15" rMBPs is still 2880x1800. Anything above that is scaled and just a waste of resources and power.

    Eh, you'd get some anti-aliasing out of it.

    Would love to know how it runs on a 12" MacBook or any other low end Mac...

    I'm curious how it might run on my 2013 iMac (specs in sig below).
