Feral's 'Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III' lands on the Mac App Store

in Mac Software
Feral Interactive has brought 'Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III' for macOS to the Mac App Store, with the futuristic real-time strategy game arriving on Apple's digital marketplace two weeks after it was made available to purchase from other online stores.

Developed by Relic Entertainment, "Dawn of War III" brings players to the Games Workshop universe of "Warhammer 40,000" for a third time, commanding three factions from the tabletop universe. Fighting as Space Marines, Orks, and Eldar, the game puts the armies against each other as they vie for control of a mysterious weapon, the Spear of Khaine.

The fight for the spear takes place over a 17-mission campaign, with players switching between the three sides, commanding them through colossal battles. Commanders can tip battles in their favor by deploying elite squads of soldiers, or by triggering special abilities to cause as much damage to their opponents as possible.

Multiplayer modes include team-based combat, with up to six players split into two teams to fight each other, with eight multiplayer-specific maps included in the game. Due to being initially released at the same time as the Linux version via the Feral Store, there is cross-platform multiplayer available in this release, with macOS players able to join up with those on Linux.

"Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III" is available through the Mac App Store for $49.99, as well as through the Feral Store and Steam for $59.99.

The game requires macOS 10.12.4 or later to run, with minimum specifications including a 2GHz Intel processor, 8GB of RAM, 30GB of hard disk space, and 1GB of graphics memory. It is recommended to use a Mac running macOS 10.12.5 or later, equipped with a 3.4GHz Intel processor, 16GB of RAM, and 4GB of graphics memory.

The Feral Store advises the game is supported on most 21.5-inch iMacs released since late 2013, all 27-inch iMacs since late 2013, the 2016 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, all 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro models since mid-2012, and the 2013 Mac Pro. The mid to late 2013 21.5-inch iMacs and 2012 to 2016-era 13-inch Retina Mac Pros are also capable of running the game, but Feral advises they do not "consistently meet the standards required" for official support.
