Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Introduces Chaos


The sequel to the Left 4 Dead style survival game Warhammer: Vermintide will add the forces of Chaos to the series’ main antagonists – the Skaven.

The Skaven are characterised as being easy to fight, but their strength is in numbers. Adding chaos warriors into the mix introduces another layer of gameplay, and according to the developer Fatshark, “Each run will be different because we have a bigger palette of enemies to throw at you. One of the biggest challenges is making the combat feel distinctly different when you’re fighting a Skaven group or Chaos group. Mixing those together in different kinds of combinations makes for very interesting scenarios that the player has to solve.”

The same five hero characters will return, but with three separate progression paths each.
