Warhammer: Vermintide 2 launches 18th December on PS4, pre-order for closed beta access

We’ve been working on Vermintide 2 for PlayStation 4 for a while now, and it’s finally time to announce that on 18th December, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 releases on PS4! The closed beta goes live today, and if you pre-order the game you get instant access to the closed beta, as well as four days early access and a bunch of other goodies.

Fight together or die alone

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is set in the Warhammer Fantasy Battle world, and it’s the sequel to the critically acclaimed Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide. The Warriors of Chaos have joined forces with the relentless Skaven ratmen, forming a Dark Pact to ravage the realms of men. If you fall, so shall the empire.

In Vermintide 2 you’ll be playing as one of the five heroes, and choose between fifteen unique career paths. Will you stand at the frontline donned in your Ironbreaker armour, let your belief in Sigmar guide your path, or give in to your flame addiction?

The choice is yours to make, but be prepared to face a challenge like never before. The combined forces of the swarming Skaven horde and the destructive warriors of Chaos will climb walls, crawl through sewers, summon dark magic, and do just about anything to stop you. You will never experience the exact same playthrough twice.

“How is this possible?”, you might ask. Building on what we learned from Vermintide 1, we evolved our Spawn Director. Enemy spawning and formations now change constantly and make each playthrough unique and unpredictable, keeping you on your toes.

The motto to follow while playing Vermintide 2 is “fight together or die alone”. The game is dependent on co-operation. You and your allies have to use your combined forces, skills and talents to survive. Your enemies have a wide array of specialised units ready to punish and tackle any cheeky hero attempting to play the solo-hero. Fight your way together through the immense hordes of enemies and earn loot to match.

Get instant access to the closed beta

With the release, we’ve created a pre-order Ultimate Edition bundle that might curl your whiskers a little. It will give you instant access to the closed beta, 4 days early access, two DLCs and other cool stuff. See the full list of included content:

Pre-order Ultimate edition to get:

  • Instant Closed Beta access
  • 4 days early access
  • Shadows over Bögenhafen DLC
  • Back to Ubersreik DLC
  • 6x Heroic deeds

The release on PlayStation 4 has been a long time coming, and we’d be lying if we said that we’ve not received daily inquiries about it. Get ready to tackle the onslaught of the Dark Pact, but remember: If you fall, so shall the Empire. May Sigmar protect you, hero.
