Joakim Setterberg, our Lead Designer, has this to say about Stromdorf:

Q: Stromdorf seems like such a miserable interesting place, where can I read more about it?
A: Check out (or play!) the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay campaign The Gathering Storm. A keen observer will find a lot of references to characters, locations and events in the DLC.

Q: Why did you choose Stromdorf as a location for Vermintide?
A: Stromdorf is a fantastic, classic Warhammer location, and it has actually been featured before in a Vermintide context; this is where Kerillian and Bardin meet up the rest of our heroes for their shared ride into Ubersreik (as our console players might remember from playing the tutorial level). We really wanted to give our players the chance to experience and explore the Stromdorf we envisioned – the miserable, rain-drenched town that became the starting point of our heroes’ journey. And, of course, to add a few surprises of our own.

STOCKHOLM APRIL 25, 2017. Today Fatshark announced Stromdorf – a new DLC to their million selling hit game Warhammer®: End Times – Vermintide™, which is set to be released on the 4th of May.

 

Welcome to Stromdorf, a wet and wild area of the Old World to the north of Ubersreik. A courier carrying important information has gone missing and the Skaven have a sinister plan in motion, so it’s up to our heroes to stop them.

 

In the previous DLC Karak Azgaraz, the gamers got introduced to the snowy landscapes of the Grey Mountains. In Stromdorf, the climate is a bit warmer but there is also 100% chance of rain. Prepare to be soaked.

 

Stromdorf has two brand new levels, as well as a mighty two-handed sword for Markus Kruber that will divide enemies in two groups; Heads and Bodies.

 

Stromdorf Features

  • Two New Maps
  • One New Weapon
  • New Achievements
  • Additional Fun

Everyone and everything deserves a name – a great name!

 

STOCKHOLM April 18, 2017. Today Fatshark announced that they need your help.

Fatshark is, like most in the gaming industry, working on more than one product at a time. That other product doesn’t have a real working title yet, and now only goes under the name 0921 (the Area Code for Boden). Although that is fine, especially according to our two staffers from the city of Boden, we think it deserves more than that.

 

So what is the secret project? Is it a new DLC, perhaps an expansion, another game all together? Lead and More Gold maybe, Hamilton’s Even Greater Adventure? Brand new IP? What is it!?!? Well, you don’t get to know that detail yet – you just get to name it.

 

“Game developers are often super-secretive regarding new projects, and they usually get a working title day one that is used until it’s officially announced. The names are randomly picked in the beginning and no one really thinks much about it. Then after a year or so, it’s not as catchy anymore.” Says Martin Wahlund, CEO Fatshark. “We like doing things a little differently at Fatshark, and we thought we’d get outside help to make our working title as great as it possibly can be.”

 

The name should be good, or even great. It may be printed on t-shirts for the employees, and on other things internally. The staff should be inspired to work on the project. Yes, that’s it. Nothing more than that. Simple.

 

The best working title will get a Fatshark Developer Promotion Kit, which includes Fatshark hoodie, Fatshark socks – and pretty much anything else we have that says Fatshark on it (can be a lot, we have a magic marker). Also all the PC games we have published.

NEW GAME MODE AND TWO NEW MAPS RELEASED TODAY FOR WARHAMMER: END TIMES – VERMINTIDE

Release trailer featuring Eurovision Song Contest winner Måns Zelmerlöw

 

Stockholm March 7, 2016. Fatshark today released the second free DLC for Vermintide called Last Stand as well as the first paid DLC for the game, a new map set in the iconic Warhammer fort Schluesselschloss.

 

“With Last Stand we’re raising the bar a couple of notches – teamwork becomes absolutely necessary to survive”, says Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark. “If you thought one Rat Ogre was difficult, imagine them in a tag team.”

In the Last Stand game mode players fend off horde after horde of Skaven in intense and increasingly difficult battles. There is only one objective: stay alive for as long as possible. The more waves completed, the greater reward and glory. Last Stand is a free DLC that includes the map The Town, set in the Von Jungfreudsplatz in central Ubersreik.

 

If players want to broaden their Last Stand horizons, they can purchase Schluesselschloss and get an additional map for $2.99 / €2.99 / £1.99. If you own the Schluesselschloss DLC, you can invite anyone who owns Vermintide to play with you, even if they don’t own the DLC.

 

The Last Stand trailer features Swedish pop star Måns Zelmerlöw and his 2015 Eurovision Song Contest winning song Heroes. With Heroes Zelmerlöw became a household name all across Europe, performing it live in front of over 200 million viewers.

 

“I listened to the song while driving, and I kept picturing the Vermintide heroes in front of me. It was simply the perfect song for a trailer,” says Rikard Blomberg, CFO of Fatshark. “We called the record company the very next day, and my car driving vision became a reality.”
