warhammer vermintide 2 march announcement

The much-anticipated Warhammer: Vermintide II had already been confirmed for launch in the first quarter of the year, but now we’ve got a much more specific date – and it’s every soon. You’ll be able to make your stand against the vermin horde on March 8 on PC, with a date for console versions to be announced “shortly.”

Want more? Here’s everything we know about Vermintide 2.

Vermintide II brings back the four player cooperative action of the original, with expanded career options, endless quests through the heroic deeds system, and 13 levels across three story arcs. The Chaos army joins the Skaven to make your stand against the apocalypse even more harrowing. You can get a more in-depth look at the action with a new selection of gameplay footage above.

“Being passionate fans of the Warhammer IP,” Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund says, “we’ve always wanted to create a Warhammer sequel that both stayed true to the beautifully dark atmosphere of the world but also brought new ideas and experiences for players. It’s been years of work but on March 8th we look forward to joining forces with players everywhere to defend Helmgart from evil.”

Pre-orders are available for $26.99 / £20.69 / €25.19 on Steam, a 10% discount lasting until the game’s launch. Pre-release purchases include access to an exclusive beta and the Death on the Reik DLC for the first game.
