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…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

The Cheerer and the Jeerer – the PC Gaming Show at E3 as it happened

Matt: Brendy never made it home last night, after jeering his way through Bethesda's conference in person. The hotel room is lonely and I miss him very much, but the PC Gaming Show must go on. Welcome to the "I'm the only one that's here-ah", where I cheer and jeer at the cheery RPS fanzine's show by myself. Brendan Wraithwell: Don't worry, I've got your…

Vermintide 2 alters its beasts with a new expansion this summer

I unexpectedly starting jonesing just the other day for a bout of delightfully grimdark rat-splatting in Warhammery Left 4 Deadlike Vermintide 2. It's coming up to a year since its release, but I never got around to the various DLC to date. Perhaps now I'll wait until the summer, when the hairy crew known as the Beastmen are set to join the fray in what's…

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 goes Back To Ubersreik today

Warhammer: Vermintide 2's second chunk of DLC - Back To Ubersreik - is out now, bringing players back to the besieged and rat-infested city from the first game. The heroes were dramatically driven out of town in the first Vermintide's last bit of free DLC, so it should be interesting to see the old stone walls given a fresh lick of paint, and some new rats…

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 turns the lights out for Halloween

I've seen more inspired ideas for Halloween events than "let's do some night-time levels", but it's still a pretty good one. For the duration of Geheimnisnacht, every level in Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has been plunged into darkness. Geheimnisnacht is "the most ill-omened night of the year", and lasts until November 4th. More importantly, there's also a community-run shitty cosplay competition.

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…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 adds mod support, more hats

First-person ratbasher Warhammer: Vermintide 2 today blasted its first content update, following a string of patches with fixes and tweaks. Along with officially launching mod support, the update adds new challenges and daily quests to complete for loot, and boshes in loads of hats, skin recolours, and other cosmetic bits. The mod SDK doesn't include a map editor, sadly, but it does let modders fiddle…

Why it feels great to hit things in Vermintide 2

This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites developers to discuss the difficult journeys they’ve taken to make their games. This time, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 [official site]. In designing Vermintide II’s melee combat, Mats Andersson ran through the same preset level 50 times a day for two years. This hodgepodge of the game’s most distinctive areas, enemies and swarms makes no sense and it looks…

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 gets a big ‘ol optimisation overhaul and squashes many rats bugs

I haven't slain nearly enough rats. Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has been rotting away in my Steam library recently, but the weeks I spent rat-whacking with some chums a couple of months back were the most fun I've had in co-op in yonks. If you want some objective proof of that, look no further than our recently updated list of the best co-op games. The update…

Steam Charts: We Can Rebuild Edition

As the Steam Charts slowly attempt to reassemble themselves after last week's complete collapse under the weight of Far Cry 5, think of this week's compilation as the moment the thought-destroyed terrifying monster is halfway through its grotesque reforming. Witness as its undulating viscera twists through recongealing flesh, a bleak but ghoulish moan emanating from deep within its darkest soul.

Vermintide 2’s latest patch buffs everything & everyone

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 was perhaps too hard a game at launch. While certainly thrilling to behold, the number of new parties crushed mercilessly by Bile Trolls was nigh-incomprehensible, and I've seen far too many missions go south in just a few seconds. Several patches to Fatshark's co-op hack n' slasher have improved player survivability, but today's Patch 1.0.5 might be the biggest collection of buffs…

Vermintide: taking the torch of Left 4 Dead from its cold, undead hands

I’d wager most folk around these parts devoured Left 4 Dead back in the day, just as I did. Valve’s “28 Days Later with your friends” infected my life for a good year, and a bigger, better sequel one year later only strengthened the disease. But as Valve haven’t really been in the business of making games for a good few years - hopefully, that’s…

John is missing. He flew out to GDC last week stowed inside Brendan's suitcase to save money, I'm sure you'll remember, but on the return journey Brendan's bag has gone missing. Vanished. Didn't flop onto the luggage carousel. The airport have no idea. John took a few cans of pop and bags of gross American chocolate in with him so I'm sure he'll be fine,…
