The latest trailer for Total War: Warhammer 2’s next DLC, Rise of the Tomb Kings, introduces us to the eponymous enemies, including a giant skeleton man who will no doubt be quite difficult to take down.

This is a new piece of campaign DLC that has just been announced for Total War: Warhammer 2. It introduces a new race – the Tomb Kings – as well as four new playable factions to take them on with.

The cool new trailer, below, shows the consequences of messing with the Tomb Kings – you’ll get attacked by giant scorpions and skeletons, basically. A giant statue might come to life and cut you down. You know, standard war stuff.

This is not actually a new story campaign, but will instead contain “two additional Legendary Lords for a total of four, with their own skills, traits, quest-chains, legendary wargear and situational challenges”.

The new factions will be playable in both the Eye of the Vortex campaign and Mortal Empires from launch.

Total War: Warhammer 2 reviewed very well, and seemed to please players – hopefully this DLC will satiate anyone looking for even more of it.

You won’t have to wait too long for it, in any case – this DLC drops on January 23, 2018.
