“More than half a million PC gamers have already taken Vermintide to their heart, and this fall it’s time for console players to do the same. The consoles will get an extended version that includes all DLCs released for the PC version to date” says Martin Wahlund, CEO at Fatshark, and continues “We are over the moon to be working with Nordic Games on this release as their experience and expertise are incomparable”.
“The combination of Fatshark and Warhammer seems too good to be true. We do have quite a few fanboys in our team, who played Krater, Lead and Gold, and – of course – also played the hell out of Warhammer Vermintide on PC. To say we are stoked to work with Fatshark on Warhammer Vermintide for consoles and the physical edition for PC is the understatement of 2016 in my book” comments Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at Nordic Games.
The console version will include the super challenging Last Stand game mode as well as its two maps, where players fend off horde after horde of Skaven in intense and increasingly difficult battles. It will also include Sigmar’s Blessing as well as the Drachenfels DLC, which contains three additional adventure maps set outside of Ubersreik.
About Warhammer: End Times Vermintide
Vermintide is a four player coop game pitting you against vile and endless Skaven hordes, which have overrun the city of Ubersreik. Players must fight the menace together as four out of five heroes, each with unique play styles, personalities and weapon arsenals. Players are dropped into the deep end of the pool, and the game will have you struggling to stay afloat until you finish the level or it finishes you.
