Vermintide, or to give this battler its full title Warhammer – The End Times: Vermintide, lets you team up with three friends and work together to thin out Skaven forces and drive them out of the city. You will assume the role of one of five heroes, and hack, slash, smash, burn and pierce the vile ratmen using a multitude of weapons.
Set in the Warhammer realm, this first person hack n’ slasher promises to be bloody, brutal and – if the brand new trailer is anything to go by – tons of fun. The game offers drop-in drop-out co-operative multiplayer for up to four players, quests, loot and a full story campaign through which to progress.
Of course, you don’t have to take our word for it, or even rely on the trailer, as Games Workshop , THQ Nordic and Fatshark have teamed up to bring a Public Beta to Xbox One.
To access the beta, just download it from the Store, or search “Vermintide” on your console and download the free beta. The beta features all the characters from the full game, and three intense maps on which to do battle.
The game launches in full on 4 October – but you can pre-order the Collectors Edition for £31.99 (currently discounted to £28.79) now.
