From the developers of the award-winning Vermintide comes Vermintide 2, a visually stunning and action-intense first person co-op game pushing the boundaries of the genre.
You and your allies are the only force standing against the onslaught of the mighty warriors of Chaos and the hordes of Skaven. If you fall, so shall the Empire.
In the End Times of the Warhammer world, you will be challenged like never before as you and your team of Heroes face untold enemy hordes in a desperate struggle to save the Empire from devastation. Choose a career for your Hero, climb the talent tree, pick from a vast range of unique weapons and gear, and hack through the ranks of the monstrous invaders.
The five Heroes of Ubersreik are back for more blood-splattering battles against overwhelming odds. The 15 unique careers provide different playstyles and add variety and depth to character progression. Each career has an individual talent tree, active and passive abilities, and access to unique weapons and equipment.
Still searching for his lost dwarfen hold and facing dangers with boisterous merriment, Bardin Goreksson has through his adventures in Ubersreik become a Ranger Veteran.
A dead-eye shot with a multitude of ranged weapons and more than capable of sending limbs flying or pulverising skulls in melee should the need arise, the Ranger Veteran wreaks havoc on any battlefield.
Ironbreakers are peerless tunnel fighters, armed and armoured for the never-ending contest against Skaven and other monsters of the depths. As an Ironbreaker, Bardin will be the indomitable wall upon which the enemy’s charge will break, and a bastion of steel for his comrades to rally around.
Before becoming a Ranger, Bardin cut his teeth as an Ironbreaker, serving in the throng of Kazak Norn. Pondering upon the events transpiring during the Ubersreik campaign, and in the world at large, Bardin decides to don the heavy armour of the Ironbreaker again.
Slayer Bardin is a melee whirlwind of carnage. A true specialist in close quarters slaughter, the Slayer Oath prohibits Bardin from using any ranged weaponry.
Bardin has been carrying a heavy burden in his heart, and after joining the band of heroes who saved Ubersreik, he finally allowed himself some time for brooding and introspection. A life changing, or rather life ending, decision was made. Bardin became a Slayer, a warrior that seeks nothing but an honorable and glorious death that shall expunge the shame.
The Shade is a master of stealth, a deadly assassin striking from the dark, able to outmaneuver any foe with fleet-footed movement and otherworldly agility. With her new faith, the Shade prefers weapons favored by Khaine, the elven God of Murder, to do her bloody work.
As the pain of exile continues to fester within Kerillian, a new voice introduced itself in hushed tones within her mind and in her dreams. The whispers promised guidance and purpose and Kerillian, sick to death of the world of men, paid attention. It was the voice of Khaine. Having accepted to heed his call, Kerillian embarked on a sinister journey to find her true self.
As the Bounty Hunter, Saltzpyre dons heavy armour and prefers to kill his enemies with ranged weapons, before he has to suffer their foul stench up close. The Bounty Hunter combines melee and ranged combat, with more brute force (and less finesse) than the Witch Hunter of old.
When dealing with his superiors, Saltzpyre learned the hard way to temper the zeal of his obsession with the Skaven. After Ubersreik, he could no longer contain himself and spoke his mind. His superiors responded harshly, threatening Saltzpyre with severe reprimands. Victor, feeling betrayed and disillusioned, parted ways with the Order he had served for a lifetime. He would now continue his quest alone, supporting himself as a Bounty Hunter if need be, giving his all to thwart the Skaven wherever they would rise.
As a Battle Wizard, Sienna unleashes powerful area of effect spells, immolating large numbers of enemies, turning onrushing hordes into smouldering piles of ash.
In order to find peace, Sienna had to temper her addiction. Her flame-lust will always be there, but she now dims it through more structured and organized means. She chose a touch of military discipline to deal with what she ultimately is – an addict.
Foot Knight Kruber is strong as steel in defence and fearsome in offence, able to shrug off the mightiest of blows or shatter enemy ranks with a formidable charge. Standing tall in the thick of combat, the Foot Knight is the epitome of a heavily armoured, frontline melee warrior.
Knighted for his heroic contribution to the defense of Ubersreik, Kruber has – somewhat reluctantly – climbed the social ladder. Not fully comfortable in his new station, Kruber has nonetheless found new method and purpose in his never-ending battles, be they against the enemy horde or his inner demons.
Level up your Heroes to unlock new talents, abilities and access to powerful gear.
Each Hero has three careers to choose from. All careers include a unique talent tree, allowing you to spec your Hero to best suit your playstyle.
The Heroes are bolstered with one active and passive ability, each unique for every career. Abilities can be crucial in turning the tide of a battle, so learn to use them effectively to increase the killing capacity and survival chance of your team.
The Rotbloods are a clan of extremely vicious norsemen, bordering on the insane, who worship Nurgle, the God of Pestilence. They have allied themselves with the Skaven and launched a devastating offensive, and don’t intend on slowing down until the whole Empire is nothing but a putrid mire of disease and decay.
The vile and cunning ratmen once again swarm from below, killing, consuming, defiling and enslaving wherever they strike. Clan Fester has returned with a vengeance after their debacle in Ubersreik, and this time they will not let some band of pathetic man-things ruin their plans.
The enemy is guided by our evolved Spawn Director, ensuring that every playthrough will be different. Enemy spawning and formations are always unpredictable, keeping you on your toes.
The completely revamped loot system ties rewards to the Hero and career you are currently playing. Combining a vast number of weapons and accessories with a wide range of properties and traits, you will be able to seriously tinker with character builds.
With an improved matchmaking system and support for dedicated servers, the multiplayer systems have been overhauled and enhanced.
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is packed with features that will immerse you deeply in the post-apocalyptic events of the Warhammer Fantasy world.
