Warhammer Vermintide 2 developers have teased out where the game is headed…good news for everyone who loves fighting Chaos.
In an interview with PC Gamer, Vermintide 2 developers Fatshark recently teased a look at where the game is headed, and it seems that Chaos is in store for the heroes of the Vermintide. Let’s take a look.

Fatshark is currently celebrating their 2nd year anniversary, and enjoying the fruits of switching to Seasonal gameplay/storylines. Their new model has seen the release of more levels, new classes, new abilities, cosmetic skins, and even careers, like the new Grail Knight, coming out for the game. And while the game continues to rise in popularity, there are plans for even more.
Features like a versus mode have been a popular request for a while, but it seems like there’s no date in sight for that yet. However, as Fatshark told PC Gamer:
Versus will pit the heroes against player-controlled enemy specialists drawn from the horrible ratty monstrosities normally trying to murder players. They’re not quite as complex as their heroic counterparts, but there will still be a lot for players to get used to. And you won’t be able to stick with just what you know, as each match will consist of two rounds, letting both teams experience the fight from both perspectives.
Fatshark is still refining the new player experience, something it also thinks could be improved in the base game. It’s not settled on how many villainous characters it will launch with, but the goal is to eventually have as many as possible. Right now, though, it wants to keep their numbers small so players don’t get overwhelmed and they’re easier to test.
Of course before any of that is implemented, Vermintide will be headed for the Chaos Wastes, a new expansion coming at the end of the year.
“It’s very different. It will take place in the actual Chaos Wastes. Things in the wastes are very weird sometimes because the Winds of Magic are very strong up there. It’s close to the portal to the Realm of Chaos, where the daemons live.”
We’ll be looking forward to exploring the Chaos Wastes later this year
