Total War: Warhammer took well over a year to finally appear on Mac and Linux, and that wasn't even a simultaneous release given that the Mac version was delayed for quite a while due to an important update. Thankfully, the same does not apply to Dawn of War 3 given that both Mac and Linux versions have arrived today, a little over a month after the original PC launch.

As with the majority of ports these days Dawn of War 3's Mac and Linux versions have not been handled by the developers themselves, but rather by Feral Interactive. You might know them from their work on the Mac and Linux versions of XCOM 2, Tomb Raider, Deus: Ex Mankind Divided, Total War: Warhammer, and the list goes on.

I haven't tested it myself so take the following with a few grains of salt, but Feral's ports so far have all been quality work, so chances are the Dawn of War 3 ones will be as well. The only problem is that I'm not sure if Dawn of War 3 is actually worth your attention given how many flaws it still has. The recent update has definitely helped a ton, but I still feel its less enticing than its predecessor. Not terrible by any stretch of the word, but quite disappointing regardless

If you're willing to overlook some of these flaws in favor of slicing and dicing your way through hordes of Orks, you'll find the recently posted Mac and Linux trailer right below. Its nothing you haven't seen before, but it'll at least show you what Dawn of War 3's ports look like. Enjoy!
