Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has officially been revealed, Chaos is coming
Keep an eye on this
Warhammer: Endtimes - Vermintide was one of the surprise hits of 2015 and gave players a game they didn't even know they wanted, a dark fantasy Left 4 Dead. After being teased back in August, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has now been properly revealed to the world, a reveal that even includes over two minutes of uncut gameplay.
The full reveal was a one and a half hour live stream on Twitch where Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund showed off the game and told what fans of the previous game can expect, and according to him Vermintide 2 will be a full proper sequel. This isn't the first time Fatshark have done their reveals through Twitch, last year in November they revealed their free VR mode in a similar fashion.
"Vermintide 2 is the evolution of the genre. If you liked the first game, you’ll love the second. We have listened to the community, analyzed hours and hours of online playthroughs, and combined this with our passion for co-op games to bring you the very best experience possible."
Vermintide 2 promises to improve on everything and will come packed with more features than the first game. Players will get to play with 5 different characters through 15 different careers all with unique talent trees, customizable arsenals, and a new and improved Heroic Deeds system. Vermintide 2 will also put players in an even stickier situation than in Vermintide 1, the forces of Chaos have teamed up with the Skaven! As we all know, the Chaos warriors are really tough guys and will require even more skill to beat.
Warhammer Vermintide 2 is expected to release early 2018, January 26th if the Steam 10% pre-order discount timer is to be trusted, for €28 or $30. Pre-ordering also nets you the upcoming DLC for Vermintide 1, Death on the Reik, and guaranteed Beta access for Vermintide 2. No word on a console release yet, but Vermintide 2 will probably get the same treatment as last time, which probably is for the better.
For those worried about the recent Loot Box trend Fatshark also said "Just to confirm, as there has been some panic - We will NOT be selling loot boxes, or selling keys to unlock loot boxes. Loot comes from gameplay, not your wallet #NoP2W"
