‘Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition’ Launching November 5 on Mac

Nearly one year after Feral Interactive announced that "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" would be coming to macOS sometime in 2019, the company today provided a launch date for the game: November 5. On this date, the game will also launch on Linux.


Feral's port of the game for macOS is the Definitive Edition, including all seven DLC challenge tombs, along with all downloadable weapons, outfits, and skills. Otherwise, the base game will be the same seen within the original release of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, which first launched on consoles in September 2018.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the third game in the rebooted series, following Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider, telling the story of Lara Croft's quest to prevent the Mayan apocalypse. The game primarily takes place in Central and South America, including areas like Cozumel and the Amazon, all on Lara's quest to discover the hidden city of Paititi.


Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be priced at $59.99 on Feral's store when it launches on November 5.

Epic Strategy Classic ‘Rome: Total War – Barbarian Invasion’ Released on iPhone

Feral Interactive today announced that Barbarian Invasion, the standalone expansion for the acclaimed historical strategy game ROME: Total War, is out now on iPhone.


Originally developed by Creative Assembly and published by SEGA for Windows PC, Barbarian Invasion was previously brought to iPad by Feral.

Barbarian Invasion takes place in 363AD during the height of the Roman Empire, when the Barbarian hordes began fighting back against Roman supremacy in an attempt to reclaim lost territory.

Players can choose to take on the role of a Barbarian commander determined to bring down the Empire, or take up arms as a Roman General and fight to extend the civilization into a new age.

Woven into the historical narrative are clashes with Christian, Pagan, and Zoroastrian religions, along with a new Horde mechanic that commands factions to raid and plunder opposing settlements to sustain their nomadic lifestyle.


Barbarian Invasion requires an iPhone 5s or later, iOS 12, and 4GB of free space to install. The full list of supported iPhones is as follows: iPhone 5S, iPhone 6/6 Plus, iPhone 6S/6S Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPhone 8/8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS/XS Max, iPhone XR, and iPod Touch (6th Generation).

Barbarian Invasion for iPhone is available from the App Store for $4.99 (£4.99 / 5.49 euros). It's a universal app, so players who have previously purchased the game on iPad will be able to install it on their iPhone at no additional cost, and transfer their save games.

‘Life is Strange 2’ Coming to macOS in 2019

Feral today announced that the adventure game Life is Strange 2 will be coming to macOS and Linux platforms in 2019. The first episode of Life is Strange 2 was just released on September 27 for Windows PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and four more episodes will be out in the next few months.

Feral's port on macOS and Linux is expected to be the full game with all episodes, similar to company's work on the port for Life is Strange: Before the Storm. Life is Strange 2 is the second main entry in the series (following the original 2015 game) and follows brothers Sean and Daniel Diaz as they go on the run to Mexico after a mysterious supernatural incident in their hometown of Seattle.


Similar to the other games in the franchise, the sequel will force players to make difficult decisions throughout the adventure, leading to different story branches and even changing the way that lead character Daniel behaves. Although it is a sequel to Life is Strange, Life is Strange 2 features new characters and a different setting than the 2015 game.
Feral Interactive today announced that Life is Strange 2, the next instalment in the much loved narrative adventure series, is coming to macOS and Linux in 2019. Originally developed by DONTNOD Entertainment and published by Square Enix on Windows and console, this is the much-anticipated sequel to 2015's BAFTA Award-winning Life is Strange.

After a tragic and mysterious incident in Seattle, brothers Sean and Daniel Diaz run away from home and head for Mexico. Life on the road is tough, and responsibility for his much younger brother soon brings Sean to the realisation that the decisions he makes on their journey south will impact their lives forever...
A specific release date in 2019 was not given by Feral. As a comparison, the publisher's port of Life is Strange: Before the Storm launched in September 2018, 13 months after it arrived on console and PC in August 2017. The first game is also available to play on iOS.
