Gamescom 2017 has brought with it an absolute treasure trove of Total War: Warhammer 2 announcements and gameplay previews. Just the past week or so Creative Assembly has released a detailed image of the Vortex campaign map, a brief video overview of all the starting positions and potential opponents, a lengthy video showing off the Dark Elf campaign mechanics and rituals, and even a gameplay video featuring a large battle between Dark Elves and High Elves!

While the most recent announcement is not exactly on the same level, you might still be interested to hear that Creative Assembly has now revealed all of Total War: Warhammer 2's achievements. There's far too many to list out, so if you're interested in browsing through all of them you'll find what you seek on the Total War Blog. That said, I do have one very intriguing achievement to highlight:

Legacy of the Great Necromancer - Construct the Black Pyramid of Nagash

If this was the only teaser for the Tomb Kings I would chalk it up to a simple coincidence, but Creative Assembly has consistently been dropping hints for the past few weeks, with this reveal being as close to a confirmation as we'll get. Naturally, I don't believe the Tomb Kings will be coming as a secret faction in the launch version of Total War: Warhammer 2, but its highly likely they will be one of its very first DLC races. While they're not going to be here for a while, I can't help but be curious about how Creative Assembly will implement and balance a faction whose primary units are chariot-based. I mean, we've all seen what happens when Norsca fields entire armies made out of the infernal things!

Whether the Tomb Kings will be coming or not, I'm sure we'll find out soon enough as Total War: Warhammer 2 is set to launch on September 28th, 2017. If you would like to learn a little bit more about it, or just check out some of the other gameplay videos, I would recommend going to the official website. And for those of you that have somehow managed to miss the recent Skaven announcement, you'll find the two rather interesting reveal trailers over here. Enjoy!
