The End Times are near — the team has been hard at work to deliver our slice of the Warhammer fantasy world to the PS4. I’m Leo, Community Manager at Fatshark, and let me tell you that we’re really excited to finally bring the highly anticipated cooperative first-person melee shooter Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide to your PS4 on October 4.

Vermintide is known for being particularly challenging, so I’m here to bring you some tips to get you started in your quest to restore order to the gothic streets of Ubersreik and repel the Skaven invasion — or at least try to.

Get to know your tools.

Each of the five unique heroes have various types of weapon, capable of dealing damage to the vile rat-men in their own special ways: from huge cleaving strikes to direct assaults against one foe. Try different combinations of ranged and melee equipment, and be sure to coordinate with your group over which benefits you are bringing to the party to ensure maximum efficiency.

Blocking isn’t for the weak.

It’s for winners! Always be mindful of your surroundings and be sure to never have the block button out of reach. Some of the smaller enemies in Vermintide can be pushed – so if things get too spicy you can get some breathing space by shoving the Skaven away.

Dodge. Dodge. Dodge.

Some of the bigger guys can’t be pushed or blocked entirely, and this is where becoming artful at dodging comes in handy. Dodging heavy attacks or special attacks is a must and is a skill well worth having in your arsenal.

Stay together or die alone.

Don’t get brave — going lone wolf isn’t a good idea! Stick with your group and work as a team. The most common cause of being overrun comes from the group splitting up. It just takes one hero headed in a different direction to bring everything crashing down and ultimately getting the group killed. Don’t be that hero!

Watch that friendly fire!

This shouldn’t be a too big of an issue when you start out as the easier difficulties have friendly fire disabled, but over time you’ll become familiar with this as you ramp up the difficulty. We find it’s best to always expect friendly fire to be on, just in case you join a match with the those difficulty settings. Practice also makes perfect (or so we have heard).

Thanks for checking out our tips for Warhammer Vermintide. Rest assured, the Old World will fall, so why not be there with your friends when it happens?

    Interesting game but bad time to release in my opinion with mafia 3 on the 7th and rise of the tomb raider the following week.And it’s an online only game.

  • I feel like I’ve missed the advertising on this game, I have no recollection about it releasing so soon. I like the concept though.

      If you like co-op gameplay with easy to pick up and insane to master melee combat, you’ll enjoy Vermintide!

    • It has been compared strongly with Left 4 Dead and strongly relies on teamwork.

  • my whole group has preordered this. too bad all 5 of us cant play it at the same time.

    and its about time we got it on PS4 been waiting for ages now.

    4th oct cant come sooner.

  • Preordered this and Mafia 3 yesterday. Can’t wait to play on tues. Luckily I’m off that day so I’ll be on all day.

      You mad some great choices! Enjoy your day off, and see you in-game!

  • Like always, if you included the Legacy configuration then it’s a buy, if not then I’ll pass. Not sure why programmers find it so hard to offer an alternate control scheme. I guess they don’t need my $60.

  • I didn’t know anything about this title except the Warhammer name. After doing a little research it is strongly seated on my list of upcoming pick ups. Probably this weekend as a matter of fact.

  • Why does this game cost $53.49 on the Canadian Playstation Store? I’m a HUGE supporter of going digital for my games, but I can pick up a physical copy of this game at any of my local stores for $39.99 CAD brand new! Help us out! :)

  • Do i need ps plus in order to play with ai? If so can i request a refund for this bull**** game

  • just finished the main campaign with friends on normal. Awesome game. We were promised helmets for all 5 characters if we preordered. my group didn’t get it. where are they?
