It’s good news for fans of fantasy first-person games and employees at Fatshark as Warhammer Vermintide 2 launches and sells 500,000 in days. The sequel to the Skaven-hunting End Times – Vermintide was released on Steam for the PC on March 8th, 2018. And by March 12th, the Swedish team behind the title were able to announce that more than half a million copies had been sold.
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is the second game set in the apocalyptic End Times of the Warhammer fantasy world, as established by Games Workshop. And the second game introduces the new dark and twisted forces of Chaos as an enemy. It also brings in 15 new hero careers, new environments, talent trees and the proprietary Heroic Deeds System.
“We are proud and happy that gamers worldwide have taken Warhammer: Vermintide 2 to their hearts.” says Martin Wahlund, CEO Fatshark. “500,000 games sold was a milestone that we had, but not less than a week after release.”
In numbers: 500,000+ units sold, 204 million minutes watched on Twitch, 50 billion enemies less, and 100% proud developers.
As with the 2015 original title, you will play as part of a co-op group of heroes. And this time you’re fighting against the skaven horders of Clan fester from the first game, and their new allies, the Robloods, who are a chaos warband dedicated to Nurgle, the Chaos God of Disease and Decay.
The PC version might be available now, but console owners will have to wait a little longer. Warhammer: Vermintide 2 will be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later in 2018.
