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…

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…

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 2 mod tools expected in late April

I've barely scratched Warhammer: Vermintide 2 yet myself but if you're hacking through fiendish hordes at an alarming pace and are starting to wonder when the planned mod support might arrive: late April is the current plan. That's what developers Fatshark told cheery RPS fan zine PC Gamer, in a chat which also touched on intent to smooth out some of the game's difficulty spikes,…

Oh rats! Warhammer: Vermintide 2 released

When visiting a fantasy world, it's important to remember subtle but important cultural differences. To us, "Oh rats!" is an innocent folksy curse. In the world of Warhammer, shout that and you'll rightly be punched in the teeth by a line of people for: 1) causing a panic; 2) reminding them of when the verminous horde of the Horned Rat butchered their ma. Bear this…

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 scurries into closed beta

Rat season has officially begun.

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…

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…
