Vermintide 2 will not have loot boxes - "loot comes from gameplay, not your wallet"

Rejoice, players, for I bring you wonderful news. In a blessed effort to buck current gaming trends, the developers of Vermintide 2 have emphatically announced that their game will contain no loot boxes.

Here's everything we know about Vermintide 2.

In a Reddit thread announcing the Vermintide 2 reveal stream, the game’s community manager declared “we will NOT be selling loot boxes, or selling keys to unlock loot boxes. Loot comes from gameplay, not your wallet.” That’s a pretty damning indictment of much of the rest of the industry, which is finding that loot boxes are a pretty nice way to boost their profits. Understandably, that comment was pretty popular.

Elsewhere, the reveal stream offered a gameplay trailer, which you can watch above, and stated that the pre-order bonus of the game would offer 10% off, access to an exclusive pre-order beta, and a free copy of Vermintide 1’s ‘Death on the Reik’ DLC. Pre-order is available now.

The stream also offered the game’s preliminary system requirements, which are as follows:

Minimum Requirements:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7 or later
  • CPU:  Intel Core i5-2300 @ 2.80 GHz / AMD FX-4350 @ 4.2 GHz
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 5870
  • RAM: 6 GB
