Vermintide's new paid DLC lets your friends play with you even if they don't own it


Fatshark have released some free and paid DLC for Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide today, and you'll be able to invite your friends to the new map unlocked by the latter even if they don't own it. 

Vermintide is good. Like, really good. So are the games in our list of PC's best games.

The free DLC offered to Vermintide players today is a horde mode called Last Stand. In a game about a plague of giant rat men, I think they're allowed a horde mode. This free DLC also includes the map 'The Town', set in the brilliantly-named Von Jungfreudsplatz in central Ubersreik. 

“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.”

The paid Schluesselschloss DLC brings a new map to Last Stand for £1.99, and lets you play the map with your friends whether they've purchased it or not.

See what you'll be up against in the new trailer:

Woa there, is there a story about Warhammer not ripping people off with extreme prices for DLC and extra content? I assumed they had set some requirement for game dev's to at least meet half the price they charge on miniatures (£18 per squad, £25+ on a new HQ, and £30 to update the rules to be allowed to play online each 6 months).

We all know that Total War: Warhammer will follow in suite (same as all Total War games have), and Blood Bowl was never price friendly for all the extra races. There phone apps come with the rules but need buying with in-app purchases. I had assumed Vermintide would be the same :P

If you look at GW games purely from a gaming perspective, then yeah their prices are pretty steep (though you can compare them to Wizards' D&D supplements throughout the 3.5 era). From a modeling perspective though you certainly get value for the premium price. Their miniatures are incredibly detailed, the paints and sprays are perfect, and their tools are fantastic. Citadel make some high quality stuff.

It's worth noting though that all GW gear on their site and in their stores is always RRP. You can get much better deals if you shop around.

Loved this game, but never got good at it. Not sure why. I don't play any other melee games, but this seemed pretty simple.

I really enjoyed the beta! So much that I purchased two copies (one for me, one for a friend of mine). It was great! Then came release day and we've played a total of a single session.

Not because it was bad, I guess it was simply released at a bad time or so. I have a habit of quickly changing games, unfortunately.
