I assume so.

It says a lot about the Storm of Chaos that Valten has, in one battle, become infinitely more badass than he was then. Then he got some nice weapons and gear, went into battle against Archaon, got his ass kicked and then saved by an Orc, and then the Skaven came and killed him.

Now he's the badass who killed Vardek Crom the Conquerer and The Changeling, both in single combat. The former was Archaon's chief lieutenant and one of the most powerful/blessed Chaos Champions in the world, the latter is a Daemon that can assume any form and had already killed the Ar-Ulric, nearly killed Ludwig Schwarzhelm, and did kill half of the Emperor's own Reiksguard.

And then he and Kurt Helborg, and The Changeling before Valten kicked his ass, killed a Great Unclean One together.

Well considering that the Storm of Chaos was retconned, I would think that Valten's origin story is the same as before;

But now instead of facing Archaon and losing, Valten has SOOOO much more possibility.

Based on what happened in Khemri in those spoilers I offered, I really doubt that Ghal-Maraz is something that even remotely concerns Nagash now.

Brother Lucian Valten does not feature in Return of Nagash. But I expect he will make an appearance in later books.

The big 1 on the cover is a pretty dead giveaway for it being a new series.
