Vermintide 2 screenshot of the Warrior Priest in action

[Update]: A Parting of the Waves has now arrived, and I'm happy to say the new map is quite awesome!

I have to give credit where credit is due. The Vermintide 2 team is remarkably dedicated to their craft! And so, over six years after the launch of the original game, Vermintide 2 will be getting yet another free content update on April 11th.

The freshly announced A Parting of the Waves update will bring with it a mist-shrouded new map to explore, and with it the conclusion of the recent Karak Azgaraz storyline. Despite the connection to Vermintide 1, the new map won't be a remaster, but rather an entirely new creation!

The good news doesn't end there, however, as the update will also add something Vermintide 2 hasn't seen in a very long time - a brand new enemy! Our new foe will be an absurdly durable Chaos Warrior with a shield. In order to bring them down you'll either need some truly mighty blows, or a bit of teamwork to get that pesky shield out of the way.

What the new map looks like in action, as well as what the new storyline is all about, that you can check out through the trailer below:

Once more information becomes available, most likely on April 11th once the update goes live, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can read a few more tidbits about it over at the Vermintide website.
