Vermintide 2 official artwork and logo

While Darktide is still struggling with regular content patches, the Vermintide 2 team continues to impress. Despite being hard at work on the long-awaited addition of PvP multiplayer, they've somehow managed to find the time to now release the "A Parting of the Waves" update!

The new update brings with it a conclusion of the recent Karak Azgaraz storyline, as well as a huge and elaborate new map to explore. It's also worth mentioning that despite the map being directly connected to the Vermintide 1 remasters, it's an entirely new creation, and quite a solid one at that!

You can get a little peek at what it looks like, as well as what the new story is about, through the trailer below. Have a gander:

The good news doesn't end there, however, as the update has also brought with it a chonky, shield-bearing Chaos Warrior as a brand new enemy. If you've dealt with Darktide's Bulwarks, you should have a pretty good idea of how to deal with the new shieldy boys. Or in other words, either try to dodge their attacks in order to get them to expose their delicate bellies, or have your team distract them while you get to work with a giant hammer!

As is tradition, the content update has also been accompanied by a small yet seemingly rather impactful balance patch. You can check out the full list of changes, as well as learn more about A Parting of the Waves, by sailing over to Steam. Enjoy!
