We’ve been working on Vermintide 2 for PlayStation 4 for a while now, and it’s finally time! On December 18, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is coming to PS4.

The Closed Beta goes live tomorrow, and if you pre-order the game you get instant access to the Closed Beta, as well as four days early access and a bunch of other goodies.

Fight together or die alone

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is set in the Warhammer Fantasy Battle world, and it’s the sequel to the critically acclaimed Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide. The Warriors of Chaos have joined forces with the relentless Skaven ratmen, forming a Dark Pact to ravage the realms of men. If you fall, so shall the empire.

In Vermintide 2 you’ll be playing as one of the five heroes, and choose between fifteen unique career paths. Will you stand at the frontline donned in your Ironbreaker armor, let your belief in Sigmar guide your path, or give in to your flame addiction? The choice is yours to make, but be prepared to face a challenge like never before. The combined forces of the swarming Skaven horde and the destructive warriors of Chaos will climb walls, crawl through sewers, summon dark magic, and do just about anything to stop you. You will never experience the exact same playthrough twice.

“How is this possible?” you might ask. Building on what we learned from Vermintide 1, we evolved our Spawn Director. Enemy spawning and formations now change constantly and make each playthrough unique and unpredictable, keeping you on your toes.

The motto to follow while playing Vermintide 2 is “fight together or die alone.” The game is dependent on cooperation. You and your allies have to use your combined forces, skills and talents to survive. Your enemies have a wide array of specialized units ready to punish and tackle any cheeky hero attempting to play the solo hero. Fight your way together through the immense hordes of enemies and earn loot to match.

Get instant access to the Closed Beta

With the release, we’ve created a Pre-order Ultimate Edition bundle that might curl your whiskers a little. It will give you instant access to the Closed Beta, four days early access, two DLCs and other cool stuff.

Here’s the full list of included content:

  • Instant Closed Beta access
  • 4 days early access
  • Shadows over Bögenhafen DLC
  • Back to Ubersreik DLC
  • 6x Heroic deeds
  • 2x Portrait frames
  • Helmgart Heraldry themed skins
  • Sigmar keep statue

The release on PS4 has been a long time coming, and we’d be lying if we said that we’ve not received daily inquiries about it. Get ready to tackle the onslaught of the Dark Pact, but remember: If you fall, so shall the Empire. May Sigmar protect you, hero.

      Hello! Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is not split screen. Hope you will enjoy the game even though it is not split screen, it is really challenging and fun!

    • TheRococoBang

      yeah this is one of those rare occurrences that any hesitation or gripe will immediately go away when you feel the attention to detail in the gameplay. this is quality as hell.

  • It’s not showing up in the US store, please fix :)

  • I’m not super clear on the release plan for this, but is this a digital only release? I would really love to add a physical edition next to the previous iteration.

      No physical release currently, but I’ve forwarded your love for a physical iteration to the rest of the team.

  • Not showing in the store. So what’s going on?

  • Give me VR mode with online co-op and you can take my money! Please? LoL! The game looks awesome!

      VR Mode, now that’d be scary! Imagine a sneak rat running up behind you in VR mode. You are one brave soul, Tomoprime.

  • Upload this to the US store you heathens!

  • Hey admins, game is still not on the US store, would love to give you my money and play this game

  • Its not on ps store?

  • NOW AT STORE: umm where? Typical Fatshark. would not respond.

    just like the first one we the console players will be the 2nd rate citizen while Fatshark cater to PC and giving us updates and New content months after PC. Never worked on fixing the PS4 server issues.

    This reminds me of the frustrating times i had with this developer the first time around. I loved the game (love anything warhammer) but man the Devs are smoking some hard stuff. I think ill skip the pre-order and wait for launch and see if these Devs deserve my money. Because I seriously don’t want to go thru the same bull they did with the first part. After getting our money at launch there was no support and no Communication regarding PS4 players. Not on official forums not on facebook nor any other platform.

  • Hi Tuva,
    I previously signed up for the beta on the Vermintide website and confirmed my subscription. However, I haven’t received a key yet. Can you assist me with this?

    • Tuva Janhans

      Hello!

      The beta keys should go out within a couple of days. Sadly we cannot guarantee that you’ll receive a beta key due to that we have received a large number of sign-ups. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that you’ll get one!

  • Why is the PS4 ultimate edition more expensive than Xbox and pc version?

    That is not fair.

  • In store it says release date 3.31.2019?

    What is going on? This is game is not even out and it’s so *****. First it was not in store then we pay more for it then the dates are off.

    It seems I was right we have same issues we dealt with vermintide 1. Very frustrating

  • How long does the closed beta go for? Does it go until release or only for a few days? HOW LONG!?!??!?! NOTHING SAYS HOW LONG IT GOES FOR!

    • Tuva Janhans

      Hello!

      The Closed Beta will go on until near release. You’ve almost an entire month to try out the game and help with feedback to improve it – Woho!

  • Also if your release date is december 18th than how come my pre-order says it’ll be playable in 132 days and expected to be auto download in march of next year?!?!?!?!?

  • This looks amazing! I hope Santa gets me a key for this..
