FatShark's Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is a first-person cooperative action game set within the Warhammer: End Times universe. Up to four online players can team up and take on challenging missions while seeking randomized loot and facing huge hordes of enemies. Think of it as the Warhammer equivalent of Left 4 Dead and Back 4 Blood.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Patch 2.4 Out Now, Double XP WeekendMatthew Squaire

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 received a, as the developer puts it, “small” patch last week in the form of the 2.4 update. The update, viewable in full here, brings better collision detection to Enchanter’s Lair, fixes locations where players can get stuck on both Old Haunts and Enchanter’s Lair, and some general fixes to the...

While a new map is always welcome news, and you can’t beat the price of free, this content may not appeal to all players. As such, the official word from Fat Shark goes on to say that: “Shopkeeper Lohner has used his fine-tuned fashion sense to order new goods to his store, and the Lohner's Emporium of Wonders has never carried this many on-fleek items. Open 24-7.” so if you’re interested in fancy-ing up the front, now may be just your time to shine.

This time, developer Fatshark is taking its beloved heroes back to Castle Drachenfels, a source of both enjoyment and horror in the original Vermintide.  In-game, the new mission takes place twenty years after the heroes first defeated the castle's Skaven inhabitants.  The sentient rat-folk haven't completely given up, though, and have brought their Chaos and Beastmen allies with them for one final attempt to wrest back control of Drachenfels.

If you have Warhammer: Vermintide 2 on consoles, there will likely be a console version coming, with the developer’s website FAQ stating that “As a team, our focus is always on setting very high standards for quality on all of our games.

With the upcoming expansion, "Winds of Magic", the developers will be introducing a bounty of new content ranging from magical level modifiers to the latest and greatest in bashable foes:  the Beastmen.  Specifically, the expansion will take players to Helmgart, where they'll face down against the Beastmen and their new elite unit, the massive Bestigor.  As the title implies, the Winds of Magic will also play a prominent role in the form of Weaves, which will offer a near-endless amount of difficulty and potential to the endgame.  Per the folks over at PC Gamer, Weaves combine portions of levels with unique modifiers and objectives to create puzzle-like combat situations for the community to work out.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 features four-player co-op where players take on different roles as they try to survive and power through waves of nightmare-inducing monsters and bosses that are more than happy to stop you and your friend’s journey short. In our (PC) recap we said that the game was a step up from the original thanks to a less randomized loot feeling; “However, the randomness has been cut way down. What's more, that equipment now feeds into the other systems - the character "professions" and overall character progression - that allows each player to, eventually, make a "build" (e.g., stalwart tank vs melee DPS).” All of those thoughts can be found here.

Sometime next month, the "Back to Ubersreik" DLC will bring back three of the original Vermintide's most beloved stages, starting with the Horn of Magnus.  To ensure things aren't too easy on our favorite heroes, though, each stage has been reworked to include the armies of Chaos as well as the inescapable Skaven.  Fatshark has also graphically overhauled the three stages to match their new vision of the Old World.

Luckily, the wait is over, as "Shadows Over Bögenhafen" is now available for download.  Alongside a hefty patch, the DLC adds two new missions, "The Pit" and "The Blightreaper", as well as a bunch of new cosmetics for players to nab.  Since Fatshark is oh-so-kind, both missions can be accessed by anyone via the game's Quickplay option, but only the folks who paid for "SOB" can use the new missions in custom games and, more importantly, garner the additional cosmetics.

The Swedish developer has promised to reveal the content of the DLC closer to the release date (Gamescom kicks off next Tuesday, so no doubt saving stuff for that), but ideally this DLC will be similar to what was released for the first Vermintide, i.e., a new set of missions in a new area and some new weapons. Given the way they've restructured class progression, it'd be cool to see maybe a new subclass for each of the main characters. I suppose we'll find out soon enough and until then, enjoy this teaser!

Xbox Game Pass is available for $9.99 a month and while the July additions feature some classic games such as The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, they don’t feature that co-op goodness we here at Co-optimus enjoy. You can read the original announcement here, but we have included the full list of all of the releases below, with the co-op titles in bold.
