Feral Releases 'Total War: Warhammer III' Optimized for Apple Silicon Macs

Feral today released Total War: Warhammer III, an Apple silicon optimized version of the latest part in the Total War series based on Games Workshop's Warhammer fantasy fictional universe.

warhammer 3 total war
Like other titles in the Total War series, the game features turn-based strategy and real-time tactics in which players move armies around the map and manage settlements, engaging in diplomacy with, and fighting against, computer-controlled factions or other gamers online in multiplayer battles.

WARHAMMER III plunges players into a cataclysmic power struggle between mortals and daemons with each aiming to save or exploit the power of a dying god. Featuring seven diverse playable races - including the video-game debuts of Grand Cathay and Kislev - alongside ground-breaking new features such as the Realm of Chaos campaign, eight-player multiplayer, and the customizable RPG-like Daemon Prince Legendary Lord.

In addition to the above lands, the game features a Prologue campaign, which promises a new Total War experience designed for both new players and those requiring a refresher course on the game's mechanics. In this narrative-driven mode, players learn basic and advanced techniques of tactical warfare before going on to engage in the main Warhammer III campaign, which takes place within the Realm of Chaos, said to be the source of all magic in the Warhammer Fantasy setting.

Total War: Warhammer III was originally released on Windows PC in February 2022, so this port from Feral is not too far behind. To play Total War: Warhammer III requires macOS 12.0.1 or later and a Mac powered by Apple's M1 chip (8-core CPU/7-core GPU) or better, 8GB of RAM, and 125GB of storage space. The game can be purchase directly from the developers at the Total War: Warhammer III store or on Steam.

The toughest requirement is the 125GB space... take that, base-model advocates!

Feral has confirmed on Twitter that the game binary is Intel because of limitations of some third-party libraries that have to rely on, but the game itself is optimized for Apple Silicon GPU and system architecture. Sounds like a very reasonable tradeoff for now.

Yeah, I’m starting to regret I only took 256 GB on my M1 iMac.

I used to love Rome Total War. So maybe should give it a try
Glad to see these kind of games heading to Apple Silicon Macs (I’d love to see games like this come to the M1 iPads)
Well you can just upgrade the M.2 SSD in your Ma.....oh wait....sorry.

From Facebook: "At the current time this title is only supported on M1 machines; there are performance issues on Macs with AMD GPUs that mean we cannot support them in this first release. We are currently working to add support for AMD GPUs. Intel Macs with an integrated Intel GPU will not be supported."

I cannot believe what I am reading from some people in here. A games publisher makes a game that is optimised for Apple Silicon, something that mac users and a huge majority of MR members have been asking for ages and now you get some people moaning about it with regards to Intel Macs!!!
