The unique Vermintide was launched 5 years in the past, introducing us to the Ubersreik 5 and the thrill of killing the mutant rat-people referred to as skaven in giant numbers. Builders Fatshark are celebrating the anniversary with an in-game event in its sequel Vermintide 2, which can run till October 26.
First up, there’s the return of A Quiet Drink, the map accessible throughout earlier anniversary occasions. It is a pub crawl that leads from the Hungry Troll Tavern to the Overweight Megalodon, with bespoke drunken dialogue and hordes of enemies alongside the way in which. End that or some other mission this week, and you will get a grotesque free hat themed after the Overweight Megalodon pub’s mascot. It is a shark’s head. A choice of hat bundles are on sale too.
There’s additionally a kill counter that may observe each enemy slain between now and November 1. If it hits 300,000,005 everybody can be rewarded with a weekend of triple XP, and if it breaks 555,555,555 that’ll be two triple-XP weekends. It is already at 19,800,062.
Lastly, there is a Twitch stream occurring on October 23 at “roughly 4pm CET,” they are saying, the place Fatshark’s CEO and narrative director will reminisce and “probably share one thing new”. Perhaps some extra data in regards to the Chaos Wastes expansion? Or extra DLC careers within the vein of the Grail Knight? We’ll have to attend and see.
Each Vermintide and Vermintide 2 are excellent co-op shooters: Vermintide 2 positioned slightly excessive in our record of every Warhammer Fantasy game, ranked.
