Next Piece of Paid DLC for Vermintide Adds New MapJason Love

Before you can reach that beacon, however, you'll have to fight your way through the outlying settlement of Khazid Kro and track down a Dwarf engineer, and then fight off the Skaven menace through the Grey Mountains themselves and in order to locate a vault containing a special rune. After all that, you'll finally make your way to the top of the fortress to light the signal fire. Just as with "Drachenfels" before it, "Karak Azgaraz" will add two new weapons - a warpick for the Dwarf and a falchion for the Witch Hunter - that will only be available as rewards for the maps included in the DLC.

Back in September, the dev team posted that the PvP focused "Siege" mode "just hasn't worked out." Outside of a small devoted number of players, the cooperative "Survival" mode was proving to be far more popular. That presented a problem for the developer as devoting resources to address the concerns/issues of both player sets meant the game was never going to satisfy anyone. So, they decided that it would be best to drop "Siege" entirely and start focusing on "Survival" with the "next big update." That update is coming next month.

For those not quite as familiar with the game, Killing Floor 2 is a class-based online co-op shooter with a heavy emphasis on gore. You and five teammates battle an onslaught of nefarious creatures (zeds) which attack in waves, with time granted in between rounds to buy or sell weapons and armor. The PC version has been in early access since April of 2015, and you can check out our co-op stream for a better idea of what you'd be getting yourself into.

While I wasn't too enamored with what I played of the Story Mode it seems like quite a few folks had a blast playing the game. The numbers are broken down into a handy little infographic below, but the most telling factor in all of this will be how long folks are still playing after it launches in a week. It will have a solid two weeks of time before it's biggest competitor, Blizzard's Overwatch, arrives. So I'll be more curious to see the numbers on how many players bleed off in that time frame and how many come back to it in a month.

Lost Reavers pits you and three of your friends against a horde of undead and other foes as you navigate through a dungeon, solve some puzzles, search for a valuable relic, and then bring it back to safety. The player holding the relic will move slower and be limited in what they can do, so the others will have to protect them while they are moving it out. It appears that each of the four playable characters in the game offer a different play style as well, with one controlling similar to an FPS, another being third-person shooter, and yet another utilizing melee combo attacks.

Borrowing elements from the new Warzone mode and the popular Firefight mode from Halo 3: ODST, Warzone Firefight will put eight players against a horde of A.I. foes on the "Escape from A.R.C." map. Rather than just trying to blow up the opposing team's core, though, you and your buddies will have to complete certain objectives, such as killing a specific kind of enemy, through five rounds of play. For players that have been enjoying Warzone for some time now, all of your REQs and customizations will be available to you.

The open beta will run from April 8th to April 18th for PlayStation 4 owners, and April 13th to April 18th for PC and Xbox One players. Despite the five day difference in start time, 2K has made the open beta download available to everyone now so you can be prepared the day it launches on your platform. They've even released a little 12 minute video that runs through the different game modes and factions.

Revealed on the PlayStation Blog, the announcement also revealed some special rewards you'll get for participating. First of these will be the new character, Alani, the moment she becomes available. This character will be released for free to everyone, but players that don't participate in the beta will have to unlock her once she does become available, and it's not known what that "unlocking" means. So this could save you some time?

This open beta is more than just a re-hashing of the previous one; a new story mission has been added, some cheats PC players discovered have been shored up, and a special in-game reward will be given to everyone who participates (provided you buy/play the final version of the game).

This update about the game was given in a short video, explaining the reasons for the delay. The Creative Director of Fable Legends,  David Eckelberry, cited reasons such as the fact that the game grew into something bigger than expected (an RPG and an RTS combined) and the wish to put in additional features and add more polish to the game. As a result, the closed beta needs to be extended which pushes back the open beta launch.
