Total War: Warhammer 2 official artwork for the Hell Pit Abomination

The Warhammer world is no stranger to messed up creatures and horribly mutated servants of Chaos, but the monstrosities the Skaven of Clan Moulder put together are something else entirely. Out of all of these nightmarish horrors that lurk in the darkness it is the Hell Pit Abomination that is by far and wide the most disturbing and terrifying to meet on the field of battle. To put it simply, the Hell Pit Abomination is a misshapen blend of multiple creatures and crude metallic weapons, all grafted together without any real care or precision, with the end result being a creature whose entire existence is constant agony and hunger.

On the positive side, at least for the Skaven anyway, the Hell Pit Abomination's unique upbringing makes it just about invincible, and as such a rather handy 'beast' of war. If you're wondering what this lovely creature might look like in Total War: Warhammer 2, and what sort of design the developers are going for, you'll find what you seek in the video right below. Have a look:

If you're interested in learning more about the Skaven or Total War: Warhammer 2 in general, you should head over to the official website. As for the release date, you can expect to see Total War: Warhammer 2 arrive on September 28th. And finally, here's the most recent gameplay preview video showing off a battle between High Elves and Dark Elves. There are unfortunately no Hell Pit Abominations, but there are multiple Dragons and a fire-breathing Hydra!
