Total War: Warhammer 2's Great Vortex artwork

Total War: Warhammer 2 has been announced a couple of weeks ago with a rather fancy cinematic trailer. In the video the three currently revealed factions (High Elves, Dark Elves, and Lizardmen) are all fighting to control the Great Vortex, but if you're not a long-time fan of the Warhammer universe chances are you have absolutely no idea why a bunch of blue wind is worth risking the lives of an entire civilization.

If you would like to find out, and also see what the developers are planning to do with the Great Vortex in terms of gameplay, you'll find the recently posted developer diary right below. Its a fairly short video, totaling only at 3 minutes, so I would definitely recommend you give it a look and hopefully start exploring the fascinating world of Warhammer. But enough rambling from me, here's the video:

While this won't come as a massive surprise to absolutely anyone, the developers have pretty much confirmed that the Skaven will the fourth playable faction. Or it could just be a random rat, because let's face it, millions of sentient ratmen crawling beneath every single city is a bit too ridiculous to believe!
