Say hello to Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide‘s newly revealed Witch Hunter, Victor Saltzpyre. He’s probably a really decent chap, and it’s just that the trailer catches him in an uncharacteristic fit of tearing rodents asunder. Yeah, that’s probably it. Victor the kindly Witch Hunter. He’d spot you a tenner in a pinch. He’d never dip his ballsack in your pint.
Victor is one of five new playable characters PCGamesN will be revealing before anyone else over the next five weeks – hit the subscribe button in the above video if you want to see the rest with minimum fuss.
Mr Saltzpyre brings both ranged attacks care of his pistol and jabby melee skills with that rapier of his to the waves of Skaven (Skaves?) besieging your co-op outfit. Though it bears some resemblance to Left 4 Dead, its rat miniguns and 20 years of particuarly rich Warhammer lore give Vermintide a personality of its own.
Developer Fatshark have previously had the game slated for a Q3 release (which would mean it’ll be out before the end of September), but despite no official release date bump it’s looking more likely to be a Q4 arrival these days.
