Total War: Warhammer II - Rise of the Tomb Kings has been announced

Total War: Warhammer II - Rise of the Tomb Kings is coming in January

The main campaign of Total War: Warhammer II includes four factions, the High Elves, Dark Elves, Lizardmen and the rat-like Skaven. Now creative Assembly has revealed the game's first major piece of campaign DLC, bringing with it the game's new Tomb Kings factions alongside several race-specific mechanics to both the game's Eye of the Vortex and Mortal Empires campaigns. 


     Across the arid wastes of once-proud Nehekhara, legions of skeletal warriors and vast, terrifying constructs rise from the sands to serve their ageless masters. The Tomb Kings have awoken – to rebuild their glorious empire anew! 

The Tomb Kings origins originate with the empire of Nehekhara, a civilisation that predates the Empire of Man by several thousand years. In modern times this faction is a legion of the dead, with mummified kings being forced to rule for an eternity of unlife.

In Warhammer II's Eye of the Vortex campaign, the faction is not interested in the Great Vortex of Ulthuan, with the race instead searching for the nine cursed books of Nagash, with the campaign ending with a climactic battle for the Black Pyramid of Nagash. Those who are familiar with the Necromancer Nagash will already know how significant he is to the lore of the Tomb Kings, though we will not delve any deeper into this right now. 

The faction itself will come with four Legendary Lords to play as in the game's campaign, each of which has unique quest chains, abilities, bonuses and start positions in Total War: Warhammer II's campaigns. The Tomb Kings will offer more legendary Lords than any of Total War: Warhammer II's other races at launch, with the faction also coming with unique Rites to perform in the campaign. 

  

 

Total War: Warhammer II's Rise of the Tomb Kings campaign will be released on January 23rd This DLC will require a copy of Total War: Warhammer II to play. Pre-orders of this DLC are available with a 10% discount, with the full price of the DLC being £13.99.

I'll be honest, I don't like playing as the Vampire Counts. I find their lack of ranged units annoying. That being said Tomb Kings has me excited.

Total War: Warhammer II is probably one of my most played games this year. Love it. Not sure who my favourite race is, maybe the Dwarves or Bretonnia.Quote

I know what you mean re lack of ranged, I have some mods on that address that issue so now have some skeleton archers and artillery, they feel much more fleshed out with addons.

Looking at the TK faction I really hope they include the archers and screaming skull catapult. I already know this will be my favourite and go to factionQuote

Vampires with ranged? Yikes that ruins them for me.

I'll wait to pre order this. Seems pretty damn expensive for 4 LLs with basically all the same rosters with the only difference being start locations. They don't have a mini campaign for it because most people don't want it but to charge the same amount as if it did because they added 2 LLs? Seems greedy tbh.

So far I really only care for Bretonnia, Dwarves, and Empire. Not sure if another dead army interests me.Quote

Only get the ranged from conquering Bretonia and then they are pretty poor even compared to peasant bowmen but I wanted to get close to what I was able on the table.Quote
