Total War: Warhammer 2 artwork for the Skaven lord Thanquol

After many months of tiny little teasers Creative Assembly has now finally and officially confirmed that the ravenous hordes of the Skaven will be the fourth launch faction for Total War: Warhammer 2. More importantly, they immediately followed this announcement with not only the cinematic intro, but also a rather revealing in-engine trailer!

So if you're interested in seeing what the Skaven will be aiming for the in the grand campaign, and what sort of units they will field in order to do so, you'll find the two videos right below. Just make sure to watch the in-engine trailer all the way to the end as the Hell Pit Abomination might just be one of the most disgustingly awesome units Creative Assembly has created so far. Anyway, here are the videos:

If you're itching to learn more about the Skaven I'm afraid you're going to have to wait a couple of days as the full roster reveal is scheduled for Friday. On the positive side, the entirety of Total War: Warhammer 2 is also just around the corner, so you won't have to wait for too long before unleashing a Verminlord of your own. To be more specific, you can expect to see Total War: Warhammer 2 on September 28th. If you would like to learn more I would suggest going to either Steam or the official website, though don't expect to find much about the Skaven just yet. And finally, here's two fluffy little ratties to send you on your way:
