The Tomb Kings, along with the Skaven, were two of the most requested factions from the Total War community and just yesterday Creative Assembly gave us our first look at the faction in a glorious trailer.
So Rise of the Tomb Kings is a Campaign Pack DLC for Total War: WARHAMMER II which will be available to play in both the Eye of the Vortex campaign and Mortal Empires from Launch. While the Tomb Kings can be played in the Eye of the Vortex campaign, they do not seek to influence the Vortex itself, and therefore do not engage in the race for control of it. Instead, they seek the nine cursed Books of Nagash, a search culminating in an epic battle at the Black Pyramid of Nagash. Each of these books grants a unique campaign bonus, and puts the player a step further along the road to victory.
Players will equally have access to four Legendary Lords from the Tomb Kings faction; Arkhan the Black, Grand Hierophant Khatep, High Queen Khalida and Settra the Imperishable.
As you play through the campaign as the Tomb Kings you will be able to research and uncover the mysteries of ancient Nehekharan Dynasties to further expand their armies, combine exotic trade goods and Canopic Jars – the Tomb Kings’ unique resource – to craft magic items and raise fabled Legions of Legend at the Mortuary Cult, and unlock the power of their unique rites to turn the tide of conflicts with powerful abilities like shrouding their territory in deadly sandstorms.
As Nehekharan warriors fall in battle, their essences flow to the realm of souls. As certain thresholds are reached, mass-healing and resurrection waves are triggered, reinvigorating the Tomb Kings’ armies.
Total War: WARHAMMER II – Rise of the Tomb Kings will be released on the 23rd of January 2018 but you can pre-order the campaign pack on Steam now to receive a 10% discount on your purchase.
Are you ready to face the Tomb Kings?
