Warhammer: Vermintide is a first-person action spin-off set in the Warhammer universe, and it lets players co-cooperatively fight off Skaven (rat monsters). It was a resounding success, seeing over 500,000 copies sold and bringing attention to Fatshark, Vermintide‘s Swedish independent developer. So far, the sequel has been even more successful, selling over a million copies on PC alone.
Now, the wait is finally over for PlayStation 4 users, who had to wait five months after the game’s launch on the Xbox One, despite the first Vermintide launching simultaneously on both platforms on October 4, 2016. As such, the Shadows over Bögenhafen DLC included in the Ultimate Pre-Order Edition has already previously released on the PC (August 28, 2018) and Xbox One (September 19, 2018).
