Vermintide 2 Back to Ubersreik DLC screenshot of a rat ogre attack

While the initial updates were a bit mediocre, it would appear that Fatshark has now finally hit their stride with Vermintide 2. Not only have they recently released the Big Balance Beta that has rebalanced or reworked just about every single career, enemy and weapon in the game, but they now have also announced a brand new DLC - Back to Ubersreik!

As you might imagine from the name alone, Back to Ubersreik will have us revisit three classic Vermintide 1 maps, all updated and tweaked with Vermintide 2 in mind. The details are currently few and far between, but what I can tell you is that one of these maps will be the Horn of Magnus, and that according to Fatshark, it will be more than just a nostalgic revisiting of Ubersreik.

If you're wondering what all of this might look like in-game, allow me to share with you the recently posted teaser trailer. It's not exactly a lengthy video, but it should at least give you an idea of the visual quality and atmosphere Back to Ubersreik will bring with it. Have a gander:

As for the release date, Back to Ubersreik will be coming this December at a $10/€8 price tag, though no exact date has been given just yet. Similarly, it's currently unknown whether Back to Ubersreik will feature any new weapons or cosmetics, but I certainly hope we get something to help spice up the gameplay even further.

Once more information becomes available I'll make sure to let you know as I'm quite intrigued myself, but until then I'd highly recommend you go and check out the Big Balance Beta over at Steam. It really is a boatload of fun!
