Warhammer: Vermintide 2 – Winds of Magic sends in the cow men on August 13

The first expansion for Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Winds of Magic - is launching on August 13th, indie dev Fatshark revealed today. Winds of Magic introduces a new enemy type known as the Beastmen, a faction of cloven-hooved bipedal jerks who, according to Warhammer lore, are intent on destroying civilization and being all around bovine-faced hooligans. After a meteor crashes in the Reikland, the Beastmen…

Vermintide 2 returning to Ubersreik in next DLC

The next DLC for Warhammer: Vermintide 2 will call back to the first game, revisiting and reworking three of the cooperative FPS's most popular levels. Back To Ubersreik is its name, and making three old levels "Bigger, better, and crazier!" is its game, according to developers Fatshark. They've only confirmed one level so far, the game-opening Horn Of Magnus where our four ratsmashers have to…

Warhammer: Vermintide 2’s first DLC, Shadows Over Bögenhafen, is out now

The bad rats are back again - no, not those ones. Warhammer: Vermintide 2 was a lot of grimdark, co-op hack n' slash fun, but some folks have already picked every last scrap of diseased meat from its bones already. Today, it got its first bit of paid DLC - Shadows Over Bögenhafen - adding another two missions to the mix, plus a massive patch…

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 scurries into closed beta

Rat season has officially begun. Following directly on from Vermintide 1's bombastic finale-as-free-DLC earlier this week, the sequel - due for launch early next month - is letting players in for their first taste of next-gen first-person Skaven-squishing starting today and continuing over the course of the weekend. Closed beta access is primarily for those who pre-ordered Warhammer: Vermintide 2, but those who picked up the Humble…

Warhammer: Vermintide downs one more for the road

We may be just two weeks from the release of Warhammer: Vermintide 2, but studio Fatshark are supporting the original game right up until the bitter end. In fact, the latest update for the game adds that bitter end for you to experience first-hand. Released as part of a free update, yesterday's Patch 1.11 adds one final mission to the game, entitled Waylaid, which sets…

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 washes in on March 8th

The Vermintide will be coming in on March 8th, developers Fatshark have announced, giving us less than a month with which to sharpen our axes, re-string our longbows, and generally mentally prepare to carve up hordes of 'orrible ratmen in Warhammer: Vermintide 2. We've not covered the co-op FPS since its announcement last year, but since then it's been made clear that the ratty Skaven…

Humble Jumbo Bundle 9 is live now, due to get more jumbo next week

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 bringing more co-op action

The 'Left 4 Dead but with ratmen' cooperative first-person action of Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide will return with a sequel, developers Fatshark formally announced today. Bearing the shorter, simpler name of Warhammer: Vermintide 2 [official site], it will... do about the same? Fatshark don't have much to say or show right now, holding their secrets back until October. But screenshots show more outdoors-y areas…

Warhammer Vermintide Free Weekend & New DLC

Poor old Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide [official site], it's a perfectly decent Left 4 Dead-but-with-ratmen, but for me it's now doomed to forever be "the one that looks a bit like Bloodborne but isn't anything quite as transcendent." I am obsessed with Bloodborne now, I'm afraid. I pray it somehow comes to PC so that I can endlessly jabber into your terrified face as…

Skave Survival: Vermintide’s Last Stand Mode Released

Here's the thing: I recognise that Måns Zelmerlöw's Heroes was probably the best Eurovision song in last year's contest, but it wasn't the best song. Are you, reader dear, listening to Heroes regularly? Exactly. Yet I'm still giving Rhythm Inside by Belgium's Loïc Nottet plenty of play and- oh fine, I'll skip to the point. Fantasy FPS Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide [official site] today…

Warhammer: Vermintide’s Survival Mode Due In February

Like Left 4 Dead, which so clearly inspired it, Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide [official site] is getting a cooperative wave survival mode in a free update. You know, a 'be swarmed by hordes of increasingly tough and numerous monsters' sort of a mode. Developers Fatshark mentioned plans for a survival mode last year, and now have more to say about when it'll launch, what…

Loot Drop: Warhammer Vermintide Free DLC

Warhammer End Times: Vermintide [official site] is an enjoyable fantasy throwdown, easy to describe as Left 4 Dead with Skaven, but with a loot and upgrade system that brings some RPG trappings to the four-player cooperative vermin extermination. One of the main complaints that I heard repeatedly when playing the game prior to my review related to the game's indiscriminate loot drops. Play as a…

Survival Mode & New Loot For Warhammer: Vermintide

"Left 4 Dead with ratmen" is how I summarised Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide [official site] when we first heard from it, though after reading Wot Adam Thinks I'd upgrade that to "Left 4 Dead with ratmen and persistent progression and loot." If the last part of that is causing you grief, good news: free 'DLC' next month will bring new items and more control…

Rats, They’re Back: New Warhammer Vermintide Trailer

Here's a trailer you may have missed among the bigger news of E3 2015, but fans of anthropomorphised rat slaughter will nevertheless want to check out. This short Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide [official site] trailer shows off the variety of environments you'll be trudging through with friends once the co-op FPS releases this autumn.

Skave On: Warhammer – Vermintide Co-op FPS Announced

"Left 4 Dead with ratmen" is how I'll crudely summarise what little I know about the newly announced Warhammer: The End Times - Vermintide [official site]. It's a co-op FPS pitting heroes against hordes of Skaven in shoot-o-melee action, coming in the second half of this year from War of the Vikings makers Fatshark. Warhammer 40K is more my bag than Warhammer Fantasy, so all…
