[Update]: The quality-of-life focused anniversary update has now arrived, and so far it's looking quite impressive!

Vermintide 2 is currently celebrating its fourth anniversary, and in order to make it a special one Fatshark is currently working on a giant, quality-of-life focused update. Many of these additions have been influenced by popular mods, and as you might imagine, offer some optional but highly useful features.

Once the update arrives this March 15th you can expect to see an option that lessens or removes camera movement while attacking, a more detailed UI that lets you see the exact numbers behind various things like health and ammunition, as well as the ability to tweak the hit marker so it flashes differently depending on if you've hit an enemy, an ally or even just confirmed a kill. There's also going to be an easy way to adjust a character's inventory without directly swapping to them, better bot behaviour, extra tooltips for special attacks like Saltzpyre's rapier shot, and the list goes on for a while.

You can find the exact details behind all of the tweaks, as well as the full list of these quality-of-life focused additions, over at the Vermintide 2 website.

The good news doesn't end there, however, as Fatshark is also planning to slightly rework Kerillian's Shade and Sister of the Thorn careers. The Shade will be getting pushed towards being an evasion and backstabbing focused assassin rather than the current 'stab you in the face' style of damage-dealer, while the Sister of the Thorn will lose some of its damage in favor of additional utility and debuffs.

What some of this looks like in-game, as well as what exactly is being changed, that you can find out in the recent developer update.

Once all of this goes live on March 15th I'll make sure to let you know. For now, however, enjoy the fresh return of the A Quiet Drink map as it's quite the adventure!
