[Update]: Vermintide 2's Season 2 update has now arrived alongside a brand new map and a much better way of acquiring new cosmetics.

If you're itching for some more Vermintide 2 content, you're in luck as the beta servers have just been updated with a rather massive new patch. It has brought with it a free remastered Vermintide 1 map called Old Haunts, the ability to acquire cosmetics by collecting in-game currency, Quick Play support for the recently added Weaves game mode, and perhaps most importantly, greatly improved weapon crafting!

Speaking of the new map, simply calling it a remaster is a bit of an understatement. It contains many of the same assets and areas from Vermintide 1, but they are arranged in entirely new ways and the whole map feels like a genuinely new experience. So even if you've thoroughly explored Vermintide 1's Castle Drachenfels, the new map should still feel nice and fresh, especially given the increased enemy and boss variety.

As for what exactly Old Haunts looks like, that'll you find out through the recently posted teaser trailer down below. Have a look, it's a fairly short one:

The update has also brought in a variety of balance changes and bug fixes, so if you're curious about all of the details, you'll find what you seek over at Steam. And if you want to give it a try for yourself, simply navigate to Vermintide 2 in your Steam Library, go into properties, betas, and then select the newest beta from the dropdown menu. The download is fairly large, but once you're done you'll be able to explore all of the new content throughout the holiday season.

Have fun, and just remember that your progress will carry over between the beta and live version!
