After being teased a couple of days ago, Total War: Thrones of Britannia has now made its way to macOS as well. Much like the previous few Total War games, the port has not been handled by Creative Assembly, but rather by Feral Interactive. If the name doesn't ring any bells, you might recognize them from their work on the macOS and Linux ports of Total War: Warhammer 1 and 2, Dawn of War 3, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and the list goes on. So while I haven't tried it myself, chances are high this port is a quality one as well.

As for whether Thrones of Britannia is a quality Total War game, that is a bit of a tricky question to answer. You can find a more detailed explanation in my review, but Thrones of Britannia represents two solid steps forward for the series in terms of innovation, but also a rather unfortunate step backwards in terms of complexity. So if you're a long-time fan of historic Total War games and you're comfortable with using mods, then I do believe it's worth a try, but if you're a completely new player I'd say it's probably a good idea to wait for a couple of months until all of the major issues get fixed.

But that's just my opinion. If you would like to form your own, you should head on over to Steam. Creative Assembly has done a good job highlighting all of the major features and gameplay elements, so you should be able to easily find the answer you seek.

And finally, allow me to send you off with one of the recent developer campaign previews. There are unfortunately no battles on display, but much like the link above, it'll give you a pretty decent understanding of what Thrones of Britannia is all about. Enjoy!
