Warhammer: Vermintide II is coming, and it's going to give Left 4 Dead fans the multiplayer suspense they've been craving since the Xbox 360 and PS3 heyday. If you think you could get into a Left 4 Dead style co-op multiplayer game in a fantasy setting, with swords and spells, this is the game for you. The first Vermintide won players over with its dark and detailed world, and airtight gameplay. If you'd like to try the game for yourself, beta sign-ups for Verminitide II are now live.
You can sign up for the Warhammer: Vermintide II beta right here. There are separate sign-ups for PS4 and Xbox One players. To sign up on PS4, click here. To sign up on Xbox One, click here. PC players, as usual, are probably going to be left out of the beta so as to not give snoopers a chance to data-mine the hell out of it. There's no word as to what exactly the beta will offer, but we think it's probably safe to assume that we'll get to play through at least one full stage with a group of players online. It will be more than enough to show you why this game is so deeply loved by its player-base.
"From the developers of the award-winning Vermintide comes Vermintide 2, a visually stunning and action-intense first person co-op game pushing the boundaries of the genre. You and your allies are the only force standing against the onslaught of the mighty warriors of Chaos and the hordes of Skaven. If you fall, so shall the Empire."
You guys are going to have to trust on this one. It's a popularly-held opinion that no multiplayer game has lived up to the experiences offered by Left 4 Dead when it was new. The creeping dread that hordes of enemies could attack at any time; the sense of exploration and survival; the over-the-top boss fights that could happen after turning any corner... All of that is here in spades. Here, have some features:
- 5 HEROES
