Total War: WARHAMMER II on Steam. The test profile assumes you have a Steam account, have Steam installed for the system, and that you own a copy of this game. This automates the process of executing the game and using its built-in benchmark mode. Backs up old preferences (in ~/.local/share/feral-interactive/) for the run. NOTES for cross-platform comparisons: TODO

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark tww2.
