The sequel to last year’s massive hit Total War: Warhammer is out next month and so it seems the perfect time for us to receive confirmation of the final playable race, which is the Skaven. A race of humanoid rat-people, the Skaven are known for the cunning as well as their strength in numbers which should lead to some interesting play styles becoming relevant.
With the faction list being finalised we now have full confirmation that each of them is a new one and not a rehash from last year’s event. The original game featured the Empire, Greenskins, Dwarfs and Undead, whereas this year we can enjoy the High Elves, Dark Elves, Lizardmen and Skaven. This links in to the fact that gameplay is entirely set on a new continent with an entirely new story, However those who already own the original game will gain access to “the colossal new combined campaign. Merging the landmasses of The Old World plus Naggaroth, Liustria, Ulthuan and the Southlands into a single epic map, players may embark on monumental campaigns as any owned race from both titles.” For more information check out the official site, along with the introductory video to the Skaven below.
