The Skaven Scurry Forth in Total War: Warhammer II

A whole new race of creepy-crawlies to love

Total War: Warhammer II

Publisher Sega and developer Creative assembly have officially revealed the Skaven as the fourth playable race in Total War: Warhammer II, joining the ranks alongside the High Elves, Dark Elves, and Lizardmen.

Under the leadership of Queek Headtaker and Lord Skrolk, the Skaven are a tricky and powerful race who have carefully been biding their time in their many subterranean lairs. While they don’t normally venture above ground, the time of their prophecy has finally arrived — causing them to emerge in droves from the underground, and spread pestilence and mayhem across the entirety of the New World.

Total War: Warhammer II is slated to release digitally on PC via Steam on September 28 for $59.99. Additionally, a limited edition “Serpent God Edition” is available for pre-order. The Serpent God Edition comes will come with a number of goodies for you hardcore collectors out there, including an integrated art book, a canvas map with exclusive lizardmen artwork, and Serpent God ‘lizard skin’ tome packaging, but will cost you a whopping $150.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side (once you get to know him), Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of developers, consoles, and genres, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Shin Megami Tensei IV, Donkey Kong Country 2, The Binding of Isaac, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia.
