Total War: Warhammer 2 Vortex campaign map screenshot from afar

Exactly one week ago Creative Assembly released the very first image of the new campaign map and all of the factions that inhabit it. While it was certainly exciting to see which territories made it in, the map was only a 2D image and such could not accurately convey what the world itself will look and feel like.

This is where today's gamescom video comes in to play! It not only offers a detailed look at all of the new Total War: Warhammer 2 regions, but it also shows off all of the starting positions for each of the Legendary Lords and factions. So if you have even a tiny bit of interest in Total War: Warhammer 2 I would recommend you give the video a look:

The vast majority of the video is self-explanatory, but there is one very specific line that has caught my eye... or rather ear. While going over the Coast of Araby the developer stated that its "currently inhabited by several Bretonnian crusaders", with the emphasis here being firmly placed on the "currently" part of the quote. This could just be an unfortunate bit of phrasing, but it could also be a tiny little teaser for one of the post-launch DLC factions. I certainly hope its the latter because Araby and its magical carpets are pretty damn awesome, so to see them fleshed out into an actual faction would be dream come true!

Whatever the case may be, I'm sure we'll find out relatively soon as Total War: Warhammer 2 is set to launch in the near future. To be more specific, you can expect to see Total War: Warhammer 2 on September 28th, 2017. For those of you wishing to learn a little bit more, or just check out some of the gameplay trailers, I would suggest heading over to the official website. If you're just interested in the newly announced Skaven, however, you'll find the two rather fancy reveal trailers over here. Enjoy!
