Total War: WARHAMMER 2’s fourth playable race has been revealed as the Skaven – you can see them in action in the newly released in-engine trailer.

Bursting forth from their foetid under-hives, the Skaven have revealed themselves as the fourth playable Race in Total War: WARHAMMER II.

Long thought to be the whispers of madmen and heretics, these skittering Rat-men are shown in an explosive new trailer to be entirely real.

Brand Manager, Henry Hankin said “we’re as surprised as you are”.

Led by Queek Headtaker and Lord Skrolk, the Skaven can be seen in the new cinematic leading a host of monsters and madcap machinery against the Dark Elves and Lizardmen. Their motives obscured, the devious Skaven are a highly numerous species who inhabit vast subterranean lairs. Now, their time of prophecy is upon us, and this verminous Race have emerged to spread pestilence and mayhem across the face of the New World.

Total War: WARHAMMER II is coming to PC on September 28th 2017. You can pre-purchase the game on Steam now through this link.
