Fatshark has announced that they’re bringing Warhammer® End Times Vermintide™ a co-operative action first person shooter and melee combat adventure set in the End Times of the iconic Warhammer Fantasy universe to Windows PC, Xbox One and Playstation®4 in the second half of 2015.
For those unaware of the Warhammer universe, initially it started out as a table game and novel series but has blossomed into an empire from Games Workshop, spawning multiple video games across generations of consoles. Vermintide is set during the End Times of Warhammer, and the city of Uberseik is under siege, you get to play as one of five heroes (each with different play styles and abilities) and work together with up to three other players trying to survive the invasion.
The announcement trailer doesn’t give us much of a view into gameplay or graphics, but it does set the stage. Hopefully Fatshark can bring the Warhammer universe to live and deliver on a 4 player co-op experience that will excite gamers. Co-op games have always had an allure for me, so I can’t wait to get my hands on this one.
