Rodent-bashing Warhammer: Vermintide 2 finally has a release window

Developer Fatshark today revealed more details about the highly-anticipated Warhammer: Vermintide 2, including a Q1 2018 release window. The original Warhammer: Vermintide took everyone by surprise and it garnered quite the following not only on PC, but also on Xbox One. It's no surprise that a sequel was announced.

For those of you who don't know, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is a melee action game with co-op gameplay. You along with three other players have to battle seemingly endless hordes of enemies in a Gothic setting.

New to the sequel is a new faction. The title introduces the dark, bloody and twisted Chaos as the new enemy. We don't know much about them yet but they're supposed to be utterly menacing from what the developers have said so far. However, that doesn't mean you won't be slaughtering legions of them. Other new features include new careers, environments, skill trees, and much more. Is all of this coming to Xbox One? Yes. Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is heading towards PC and consoles soon.

As stated earlier, the game will be available in Q1 2018, but we don't have an exact release date yet. Preorders are only open on Steam at the moment, but we'll update you as soon as they go live for consoles. Don't expect that to be anytime soon though. They might not go live until next year.
