If you're a fan of Left 4 Dead styled games, or just heavily co-op focused games in general, you might want to try Warhammer: Vermintide 2 as it's currently having a free weekend. Simply head on over to Steam, click on that giant green button, and you'll be able to hack and slash your way through hordes of ratmen and fanatics until Monday, September 3rd.

For those of you on the fence, I would highly recommend giving Vermintide 2 a chance. It might have some annoying bugs and the very first DLC has been a bit controversial, but it's still one of the best co-op games I've ever played as there are very few things more enjoyable than standing shoulder-to-shoulder with your friends and cleaving through hundreds of filthy ratmen. So if you have even a bit of interest in the concept, do make sure to at least give it a try while it's still free.

It's also worth mentioning that Vermintide 2 will be on a 50% discount (which brings the price down to €14) for the duration of this free weekend, so if you find yourself liking what you see, you can get a fully copy at a fairly reasonable price. However, if you're looking for a more detailed overview of what Vermintide 2 is all about, I welcome you to check out the review I did after around 50 hours of gameplay.

And as a final note, allow me to send you off with the recent Xbox One launch trailer. It's a relatively short video, but it should clue you in on what exactly Vermintide 2 has to offer. Enjoy!
