Feral Interactive announced today that Total War: WARHAMMER for macOS, powered by Apple’s new graphics API, Metal, will be released on April 18th. The game was developed for Windows PC by Creative Assembly in partnership with Games Workshop, and published by SEGA.

Total War: WARHAMMER for Mac, a game of grand strategy and high fantasy, is the union of three forces: Creative Assembly’s Total War series, Games Workshop’s magical setting of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, and Metal, innovative technology from Apple that brings impressive performance and graphics to Mac games.

A fantasy strategy game of colossal proportions, Total War: WARHAMMER 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.

The first in an epic trilogy of titles, Total War: WARHAMMER delivers hundreds of hours of absorbing gameplay and will combine with two further standalone installments and additional content packs to create the single largest Total War experience ever.

“Bringing this first installment of Total War: WARHAMMER to the Mac has been an immense endeavor,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive, “We know the huge level of expectation from Mac fans of the series, and we are delighted to at last deliver them this wonderful game in all its spellbinding glory.”

Total War: WARHAMMER will be available through the Feral Store, Steam, and the Mac App Store.

System requirements will be announced shortly, please follow @FeralGames on Twitter for updates.

A minisite dedicated to the game is now available along with an announcement trailer on YouTube .
