Vermintide 2 is a visually stunning and ground breaking melee action game pushing the boundaries of the first person co-op genre.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is heading towards PC and consoles.
“Vermintide 2 is the evolution of the genre. If you liked the first game, you’ll love the second.” says Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark, and continues “We have listened to the community, analyzed hours and hours of online playthroughs, and combined this with our passion for co-op games to bring you the very best experience possible.”
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 will release Q1 2018 on consoles and PC.
