Total War: Warhammer 2 just got a new campaign pack, titled Rise of the Tomb Kings. The pack brings a new campaign and race-specific gameplay mechanics to the table. Skaven Legendary Lord Tretch Craventail is also live as a free piece of DLC.

Total War: Warhammer II's The Rise of the Tomb Kings Campaign Pack is now live. The new pack has brought a fresh campaign as well as some race-specific gameplay mechanics, victory objectives, and lore.

The Tomb Kings will fight using "countless skeletal units, supported by towering stone constructs such as the Tomb Scorpion, Necrosphinx and the colossal Hierotitan".

The new campaign pack will be playable in both the Eye of the Vortex and Mortal Empires. The Tomb Kings are said to be very picky when it comes to their specific victory conditions. In order to win, the Kings have to collect the Nine Books of Nagash.

Their very own skills, traits, quest-chains, legendary wargear and situational challenges will be on hand to help them claim victory over their enemies. Players will be able to choose which character they want to play as, and the options include: Settra the Imperishable, Khalida, Khatep and Nagash’s former lieutenant, the malignant Arkhan the Black.

An addition that you don't have to pay money for is Skaven Legendary Lord Tretch Craventail. He's also playable in both the Eye of the Vortex campaign as well as the Mortal Empires campaign.

"Few Skaven possess the cunning and guile of Tretch, and he empowers his underlings to fight harder as they return from every rout" says the press release.

You'll find Lord Tretch on Warhammer II's Steam page, if you scroll down to the list of the downloadable content packs. Rise of the Tomb Kings is also available via Steam.
