Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Revealed & Detailed – Coming Early 2018

New Features, New Maps, New Enemies, & Better Graphics

Another horde of Warhammer content is coming in the form of Vermintide 2, a sequel to the grimdark co-op experience. A ton of new info was revealed via the game’s official Steam page, along with some stunning screenshots.

It looks like we’re getting a bigger game than before. Developed and published by Fatshark, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 will boast a ton of new features to improve upon the first installment. Better yet, the game will arrive with mod support that is likely to extend its lifespan. Behold the tide of info below.

“Vermintide is back – darker, bloodier and more intense than ever! Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Vermintide. The time has arrived to revisit the fierce first-person co-op slaughter-fest featuring visceral and groundbreaking melee action, set in the apocalyptic End Times of the war-ravaged Warhammer Fantasy Battles world. Our 5 heroes have returned to take on an even greater threat – the combined forces of a malevolent and destructive Chaos army and the swarming Skaven horde. Prepare to be challenged like never before as you and your team desperately try to survive the never-ending onslaught. Choose between 15 different careers, climb the talent trees, customize your arsenal to fit your unique play style, fight your way through a myriad of stunning levels, and challenge yourself in our new Heroic Deeds System. The only thing standing between utter defeat and victory is you and your allies. If you fall – so will the Empire.”

As listed, there will be a total of 5 different heroes and a total of 15 different career paths. Each career path sports a different look and each hero is wholly unique. Then play with up to 4 players in a relentless co-op experience. I say relentless because another enemy has been introduced in the form of the Chaos faction. That means no more just fighting rats but fighting the brutal warriors of the Chaos army.

Additionally, Vermintide 2 introduces a new questing system. These “Heroic Deeds” alter the enemy composition, objectives, and determine level settings. You run into entirely different scenarios as a result. In doing so, you will explore new maps within the realm of Helmgart. Battles will take place on the border between Bretonnia and the Empire. Farm fields, crumbled castles, and murky forests await.

Look out for Warhammer: Vermintide 2 during Q1 2018. Pre-orders are already available with a 10% discount available through January 26th. In the weeks leading up to release, we’ll keep you updated on all the latest info dumps. Until then and beyond,

Happy gaming.
