Warhammer: Vermintide II will launch for PC via Steam on March 8, developer Fatshark announced.
“Being passionate fans of the Warhamer IP, we’ve always wanted to create a Warhammer sequel that both stayed true to the beautifully dark atmosphere of the world but also brought new ideas and experiences for players,” Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund said in a press release. “It’s been years of work but on March 8 we look forward to joining forces with players everywhere to defend Helmgart from evil.”
Here is an overview of the game, via Fatshark:
Warhammer: Vermintide II is a visually stunning and groundbreaking melee action game pushing the boundaries of the first person co-op genre. Set within the dark End Times, during the destruction of the World That Was, the game introduces the dark, bloody and twisted Chaos as a formidable and unrelenting enemy faction. Other new features include 15 hero careers, new environments, talent trees and the proprietary Heroic Deeds System.
PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Warhammer: Vermintide II are also planned, but have yet to receive a release date.
