Polish up your battleaxes and reload your crossbows, because the horde is incoming again. Fatshark has announced that Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is scheduled for a Q1 2018 release. Fatshark have analyzed countless hours of gameplay from the original Vermintide to deliver the most finely-tuned hack and slash co-op experience the studio can muster. The sequel will feature 5 characters and 15 career paths, an improved loot system and of course a wide range of new maps. The original Vermintide was a runaway hit so I'm happy to see Fatshark evolving the formula that worked so well the first time.
You can preorder the game here on Steam and save 10% off the launch price, which also gives you access to the pre-release beta and the upcoming Death of the Reik DLC for the first Vermintide. Check out the trailer below for a first look at the sequel.
