A few months ago, a sequel to the popular Warhammer: Vermintide was announced for Xbox One and other platforms. The original game was somewhat of a surprise hit because it combined teamwork with satisfying melee combat. Players were enamored with the presentation and many were hoping for a continuation to the series.
Just like its predecessor, 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. The title introduces the dark, bloody and twisted "Chaos" faction as the new enemy. We don't know much about them yet, but they're supposed to be utterly menacing from what the developer has said so far. However, that doesn't mean you won't be slaughtering legions of them. Other new features include expanded careers, environments, skill trees, and much more.
Today, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 went up for digital preorder on the Xbox Store. Currently, a $44.99 "Premium Edition" is available for purchase with a release date of July 11, 2018. The title launched on PC back in March. The base game costs $29.99 but it's unclear when that version will be available on the console. It's also supposed to come to Xbox Game Pass.
Developer Fatshark also confirmed that Warhammer: Vermintide 2 was targeting native 4K resolution on Xbox One X and 1440p on PlayStation 4 Pro. The developer said that it was enhancing the Xbox One X version with native 4K textures and a steadier frame rate compared to base hardware. If you want a taste of the visuals, be sure to check out the open beta.
