Warhammer Vermintide 2

Fatshark’s fantasy action RPG Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is now available for Xbox One. Having already passed one million units sold on PC, the Xbox One version is also available on Microsoft’s subscription-based Xbox Game Pass service. Check out the release trailer below.

Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund said, “We are excited to bring Vermintide 2 to the Xbox community. We are looking forward to taking on Skaven and Chaos with the console gamers.”

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 provides five playable characters, each with their own unique skills and abilities. Sienna, for instance, is a mage that uses Pyromancy to torch foes to a crisp. Kerillian is an Elven Ranger with a bow and arrow that picks off enemies from a distance. Each character possesses three different careers to specialize in for added customization and build possibilities. Designed for co-op, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is also playable solo with AI companions helping out.

Two versions of the game are available through Xbox.com – the Standard Edition ($29.99) and the Premium Edition ($44.99). The latter includes the following items:

  • Sigmar Keep Statue
  • Helmgart Heraldry Themed Skins
  • Premium Edition Portrait Frame
  • 3x Exclusive Heroic Deeds

If slaying the armies of Skaven and Chaos is your blood-stained cup of tea, then Warhammer: Vermintide 2 may be worth a look. You can check out GamingBolt’s official review for more information, but the game has had a number of updates for PC since launch. There’s the Sonnstill Celebration Event, which brings three new Event Quests and is live till July 12th. As for the PS4 version’s release, we’ll have to wait for more information from Fatshark.
