Huge Warhammer Vermintide 2 update adds new enemy, map, and it’s free

Warhammer Vermintide 2 update A Parting of the Waves is coming to all players for free soon, with a brand new map and enemy type on offer.

Warhammer Vermintide 2 is getting a brand new map and enemy type incredibly soon, as Fatshark closes out the Karak Azgaraz storyline with a free update for all. If this has you incredibly excited, don’t worry; we’ve only got a few days to wait.

Warhammer Vermintide 2 update A Parting of the Waves is bringing a fair amount of new content to Fatshark’s PvE hack-and-slash game. Adding a brand new map and enemy type, A Parting of the Waves officially closes out the Warhammer game’s Karak Azgaraz storyline.

This fourth map isn’t a remaster from Vermintide 1 either, but instead, it’s a brand new stormy locale, with nothing but the crashing waves on one side and an ominous lighthouse on the other.

That’s not at all though, as a brand new enemy in the form of a Chaos Warrior, armed with a shield and mace, is coming to Vermintide 2 with the update as well. Fatshark says “This foe is mighty and tough. It’ll take some mighty blows to fell these soldiers of Chaos, or a cunning hero able to expose their weak spot.”
