Developer Fatshark has released the first look at its upcoming sequel, Warhammer: Vermintide 2. One thing that the studio was adamant on getting across is that the only Chaos here is the faction, as the game will “NOT” have loot boxes.
That’s right, Chaos is taking the forefront this time around, but Skaven will not be too far behind as the titular vermin themselves will also be pitted against all five original heroes. The system works a little different this time, enabling the player to specialise in one of three classes, each of which has its pros and cons.
That’s not all that’s been given a good overhaul, as there will be more weapons, enemies, locations talent trees, a completely new user interface as well as mod and dedicated server support.
One thing that most certainly won’t be added is loot crates. Amidst the latest controversy, Hedge took to the subreddit to officially post on behalf of Fatshark, stating “We will NOT be selling loot boxes, or selling keys to unlock loot boxes. Loot comes from gameplay, not your wallet.”
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 will land on PC during the first quarter of 2018, with pre-orders stating that the release is January 26th. Unfortunately, for now there are no announced console versions as of yet.
KitGuru Says: I am sure this is welcome news to many who want to just buy and play a game rather than getting entangled in the politics of it all. How many of you played the first Vermintide? Do you plan on picking up the sequel?
