Creative Assembly have unsurprisingly revealed that the Skaven will join the High Elves, Dark Elves and Lizardmen as the fourth race which will be inhabiting the New World in Total War: WARHAMMER 2.

It’s long been unsubtly hinted at by the Total War team that the tabletop favourites would be included in this sequel. However, it’s taken until this week for Creative Assembly to concretely announce their arrival.

Judging by the trailer, Queek Headtaker and Lord Skrolk will be the primary commanders available to the mutated rats at launch. As the expansion progresses, players should expect more to be added.

From the trailer’s description:

Their motives obscured, the devious Skaven are a highly numerous species who inhabit vast subterranean lairs. Now, their time of prophecy is upon us, and this verminous Race have emerged to spread pestilence and mayhem across the face of the New World.

Total War: WARHAMMER 2 releases for PC worldwide on September 28th, 2017.
