[Update]: The Blood in the Darkness map has now arrived, and I'm happy to say it seems to be even better than Old Haunts!

Fatshark announced a little while ago that Vermintide 2 will be getting three new Castle Drachenfels inspired maps throughout Season 2. The first of these three maps, Old Haunts, arrived about two weeks ago alongside an in-game store for cosmetics, overhauled Weaves, and a bunch of balance changes.

However, unlike the Return to Ubersreik DLC which mostly focused on remastering maps from Vermintide 1, the Old Haunts map so far indicates that Fatshark is taking the Castle Drachenfels trio in a bit of a unique direction. So even though Old Haunts contains some elements from Vermintide 1's DLC, it is an entirely new (and quite fun) experience for both veterans and newcomers alike.

But if you've already beaten Old Haunts and you're now eagerly looking for more, I'm happy to say you wont have to wait for long. According to the most recent developer update, the second map Blood in the Darkness is currently undergoing testing and will arrive at some point mid-February.

Outside of the two screenshots the details are pretty much nonexistent, but even so, it's quite refreshing to see Vermintide 2 finally get such a nice and steady stream of content. This goes doubly so when the content in question is new maps, something that in my eyes represents the very core of the Vermintide 2 experience. After all, what is more enjoyable than slapping rats around in beautiful and often bizarre new locations!?

Once more information becomes available I'll make sure to let you know, but until then you can read a little bit more about Vermintide 2's future over at Steam. Have fun with all of the evil ratties!
