Independent developers Fatshark announced this week that Warhammer: Vermintide 2 will be available on Steam on March 8, 2018.
Players who preorder Vermintide 2 will be rewarded with a 10% off discount, an exclusive beta testing session available shortly before launch, and the Death on the Reik DLC for Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide.
Being passionate fans of the Warhammer IP, we’ve always wanted to create a Warhammer sequel that both stayed true to the beautifully dark atmosphere of the world but also brought new ideas and experiences for players. It’s been years of work but on March 8th we look forward to joining forces with players everywhere to defend Helmgart from evil.
Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark.
