Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is set to arrive on PC this March 8th, but if you would like to start playing it ahead of time you might be interested to hear that the pre-order beta has now begun. It only contains a couple of maps and there are still some issues that are likely to get patched by time Vermintide 2 launches, but other than that it is basically the same experience as the full game. As such, all of your progress in the pre-order beta will carry over to the final version!

If you're not sure what Vermintide 2 is all about and whether it's a game you would even enjoy, allow me to share with you the recently posted gameplay trailer. It's fairly short, but it should give you all of the information you need. Have a look:

On the other hand, if you're interested in my thoughts on Vermintide 2 and what exactly it brings to the table, you'll find my preview article over here. It's based on a fairly early demo so it's not exactly up-to-date, but it should still prove of some use since the gameplay has remained quite similar throughout the various beta tests.

You can also learn more about Vermintide 2 by visiting either Steam or the official website. And just for good measure, here's another gameplay trailer featuring the ever-grumpy Saltzpyre. Enjoy!
