STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – April 12, 2018. Independent developer Fatshark today announced that Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has surpassed one million units sold within five weeks after being released on PC.
“We are genuinely humbled by the reception of Warhammer: Vermintide 2 from gamers all over the world” says Martin Wahlund, CEO Fatshark. “We reached half a million units within the first week, and one million within five weeks, which is far quicker than we ever expected.”
If you aren’t one of the million, it’s not too late to join the co-op experience.
Vermintide 2 is a visually stunning and ground breaking melee action game pushing the boundaries of the first person co-op genre. Set during the apocalyptic End Times of the Warhammer world – the game introduces the dark, bloody and twisted forces of Chaos as an enemy faction. Other new features include 15 hero careers, new environments, talent trees and the proprietary Heroic Deeds System.
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is also coming to Sony Playstation 4™ and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. Console BETAs will be available during the spring.
