    Feral Interactive is developing macOS/Linux version of Dawn of War III, it is set to release on June 8th. They did a Linux version for Dawn of War II last year, which I have played a LOT. I am really looking forward to this release!

    I love Feral Interactive! We need more companies who are willing to take a risk for little profits now and eventually make bit profits later on. Valve is another company who is willing to take risks.

    Hello guys, been a little absent for a while as life has been busy lately.

    I have been playing the native Linux version of Dawn of War 3 the last few days, and it is great. I am able to run it with all settings on maximum on my 2 year old laptop, so the Linux version seem to be very well made instead of a lazy port. Anyone into RTS, and especially the Warhammer 40k universe should definitely look into it.

    Wow, that screenshot is very impressive!
    Its good to hear that developers are spending the time to really optimize a Linux version of their game.

    I've read too many times that games are rushed and end up with bugs and bad performance.
    I know its been slow and will continue to be slow, but its nice to see Linux getting proper attention.
