Warhammer: Vermintide II Announced

Fatshark is back with the next chapter in Vermintide! Check out the teaser trailer and screenshots!

Vermintide was a fun mix of Warhammer’s Old World setting and the rock-solid game play of the Left-4-Dead concept. Now, the game is getting a second round with the announcement of Vermintide II!

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Vermintide. It’s time for players to return to the memorable first-person co-op experience with intense world class melee action.

Set in the dark and grim Warhammer Fantasy world, you must join forces with up to three other players to tackle the endless hordes of enemies. Equipped with a variety of melee and ranged weapons, you and your team are all that stands between utter defeat and victory – and if you fall so will the Empire.

Vermintide II on Steam

The Steam store page also had these screenshots to share:

The full reveal is coming on October 17th. We were all big fans of the original so we’re going to be keeping an eye out for this one and will have more info as this one develops. Right now we have a whole lot of “TBD” info on the game. Even the requirements are subject to change:

 

I can’t wait to get back in there and smash some rats!

  • Richard Mitchell

    Don’t get me wrong, I love the Old War, even played the MMORPG but it is a mystery to me that in digital content…Old World, analog content AoS.

    • Motski

      Old world for digital content because the license would be cheap as chips now that the game has been discontinued

      • TophatKiyaki

        Also because the Old World was always extremely popular from a lore and setting standpoint, it was the actual tabletop game that always sold poorly, whist third party content for it like the P&P RPG were popular.

        Age of Sigmar is the opposite; the game is a massive success but the story behind the game is largely considered extremely sub par, so now that GW is finally giving people the chance to tap into the old world for video games proper, few could really care less about AoS for it.

        • Seienchin

          Warhammer sold poorly while the PP RPG was popular? WHAT? How did you get upvotes? This is just false. Or maybe it is correct for the country you are from but warhammer was GWs flagship product until the early 2000s and sold very well with increasing revenues all through the 1990s.

      • UnpluggedBeta

        I highly doubt that’s the reason why there is no digital AoS content, especially given the absolute mudslide of el cheapo 40k games currently infesting steam (some of which are actually quite good, but that’s not the point).

        • EnTyme

          I think it has more to do with GW not selling the license for AoS just yet. They’re still developing the world, so want to have more control over the IP until it’s more established.

    • Rita-Audrey Jones

      I would REALLY love a turn-based AoS strategy game!

    • thereturnofsuppuppers

      This game set in silver tower! horrors splitting open and vomiting two screaming blue chaps.

      Skaven assassins, Giant ogres, scuttling grots

      Grumpy beastmen.

      Would be great

      • DeliciousBishop

        I like this

    • luke-vdv

      Because the Warhammer World will return in both skirmish and rank & file form to bump aside the horrible lore of AoS!

  • Moke

    Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! I loved the first one so much. Here’s hoping we get a little more content in the second.

    • IronGryphon

      How will the second one be different than the first? Sounds just like a repeat of the first game to me. I’ll admit, I didn’t play the first, one so this is just an impression I got so far.

  • Hagwert

    Wow… those screen shots look beautiful ….these guys get the Old World better than GW have for a long time .

    • zeno666

      I’m not at all a fan of the first game. But this is very true, they get look of the setting.

  • Shadowstrife

    They need to fix the shaky cam from Vermintide I.

    The game gave me serious vertigo I thought was going to puke.

  • dave long island

    Roll Tide, Roll!!

  • DeliciousBishop

    HOLY SIGMAR! BLESS THIS RAVAGED BODY!

    If Victor Saltspyre isn’t in this I’ll flip.

  • SB

    I wish they make chaos daemons version of this series.

  • Severius_Tolluck

    More content would be nice. New hero types, or villains 😉 Could have Jezzails, Doom flayers, plague mortars, censor bearers, plague monks with woe staffs as w ell as standard monks. Boss battles with maybe a doom wheel, a plague furnace/screaming bell? Rat swarms or hordes of giant rats. Many more unit types they can throw at you for Skaven alone. But having a twist with daemons or goblins / orcs would be ok too.
    The pictures tell us it will still be Reikland centric, which shame. Kislev could have been nice, or even the Old world, in Lustria.

    • DeliciousBishop

      Total win if they just put Thanquol in for sniz and giggles – accidentally helping you out throughout the game while still being the main antagonist.
