Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide has sold over 500,000 copies!

A couple of years ago Games Workshop started giving out the Warhammer and Warhammer 40k licenses to anyone that was willing to ask, which mostly resulted in games that were either broken, boring, or sometimes even a magical combination of both. So imagine everyone's surprise when a "L4D clone" from a small indie studio ended up being one of the best games to release in 2015.

I am, of course, talking about Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide which has since then managed to improve on nearly all fronts and earn itself the bragging rights that come with selling over half a million copies! An exceptional number for some AAA games, let alone an indie studio. As you can imagine, the team is rather grateful for the support:

“We are really happy with the sales so far. We reached half a million copies much faster than we estimated. As a small studio, this really is an amazing milestone for us. The office is a hive of excitement.” says Martin Wahlund, CEO Fatshark, who continued “We are overwhelmed by the positive response from both players and critics alike, and this has given us the extra drive to continue providing exciting and engaging content so that everyone can continue to enjoy the game long into the future.” 

Vermintide's new difficulty mode is deathwish

Along with the short thank you message came a promise of future support and even more free/paid DLC, with the next one scheduled to arrive by the beginning of May. Whether it will be a paid or free piece of dlc, however, they haven't said, but more information should be coming in the near future.

As a final note, Fatshark released one of the better April Fools videos out there. Its about the upcoming Death Wish difficulty in which everything is doubled, nay, tripled!
