Vermintide 2's Sienna and Kerillian fighting against Beastmen

[Update #2]: Vermintide 2's Winds of Magic expansion is already playable for those that have pre-ordered!

[Update]: Fatshark has now released a lengthy developer update detailing their plans for the Winds of Magic expansion, as well as the future of Vermintide 2.

After releasing a couple of map-based DLCs, Vermintide 2 developer Fatshark is now setting their sights on a more substatial content update - the Winds of Magic expansion. While the details are still few and far between, you can expect to see the Beastmen as a new enemy faction, a variety of new weapons to play around with, a higher level cap and all-new loot, as well as the titular Winds of Magic mode that will have you explore semi-randomized levels in search of ever-greater challenges.

If all of that sounds as good to you as it does to me, you'll be glad to hear that Fatshark has now announced that the Winds of Magic expansion will be coming this August. Better yet, they have started accepting sign-ups for the closed beta, so if you're looking to get a bit of a sneak peek, make sure to submit your email on the latest announcement page.

The final thing worth mentioning is that Fatshark has now also released a cinematic trailer that offers a bit of an insight into what the Winds of Magic expansion will be centered around. Have a look, it's quite an interesting one:
