Tomb Kings Confirmed in Total War: Warhammer 2

Greg Burke may have gotten a bit of a scoop in this recent Total War: Warhammer 2 interview at PAX West 2017.


With the upcoming release of Creative assembly’s newest Total War game, Total War: Warhammer II, one can’t help but get excited. The Warhammer license coupled with the Total War franchise has become one of, if not the bestselling Total War game ever released. If you're an Games Workshop fan, an Age of Sigmar player, or even a 8th edition Warhammer Fantasy player (long live fantasy!), you’ll notice things missing from the games.

In my interview below I discussed the creative decisions with the games Lead Designer of new content about leaving out core units found in the table top game (like Skaven gatling guns) and in the process confirm that the famous faction of Tomb Kings will indeed make it into the Total War Warhammer Franchise, as DLC or in the sequel.  For the full story watch the video below, Tomb Kings are confirmed around the 7:55 mark.
