Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is spinning things on its head by letting players take control of the vermin menace that players have been fighting against for the longest time.
Giant mutant rats with knives, spears, and miniguns are here and playable. Players will fight against each other with one side getting to control the vermin as they try to eliminate the resistance of human enemies.
The giant mutant rats called the Skaven are now playable, including classes with poison bombs, knives, and a minigun aptly titled the ratling gun. The hunt is on as players who control the Skaven will need to turn the tides of war against the humans.
Right now it looks like things will be limited to a few maps while giving players access to most of the Skaven classes available for play, but the game is only preparing to launch into beta so more content is sure to come later along with more details on exactly what will change between factions.
Players can sign up to play the beta soon on Vermintide’s website. There is no official release date for the game mode yet, but players should expect it out before the end of 2019.
