Warhammer: End Times Vermintide screenshot of the Witch Hunter

Ever since its release Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide has continuously been updated with new content, items and DLC, so much of it in fact that the base game has essentially been doubled at this point. However, if even all of that was not enough to sate your thirst for Skaven blood, you'll be glad to hear that the developer Fatshark has now not only announced a sequel, but also shrunk the name to a much more manageable Warhammer: Vermintide 2!

The details are currently in short supply, by which I mean there are basically none available, though the developers did release a rather puzzling little teaser trailer. You'll find it right below, but don't expect to find much in terms of revelations unless you're an expert in Skaven lore and can identify creatures based solely on their roars. Here's the video, along with the brief description that arrived with it:

"Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Vermintide. It’s time for players to return to the memorable first-person co-op experience with intense world class melee action.

Set in the dark and grim Warhammer Fantasy world, you must join forces with up to three other players to tackle the endless hordes of enemies. Equipped with a variety of melee and ranged weapons, you and your team are all that stands between utter defeat and victory - and if you fall so will the Empire."

While I would love to tell you more, I'm afraid that's pretty much everything revealed so far. In order to learn even a tiny bit more it would appear we're going to have to wait until October 17th for the full reveal, but until then you can take a sneak peek at some of the new environments over at Steam.

And finally, if you've never played Vermintide yet you're a fan of co-op games, make sure to head over to the currently ongoing Humble Jumbo Bundle 9 as you can grab it for a very tempting $5. Not only is this an extremely large discount on Vermintide itself, but you also get a bunch of other quality games to play around with, so I would highly recommend you give the bundle a look. Have fun!
