The long-awaited Warhammer: Vermintide 2 DLC, Chaos Wastes, finally got a release date, and it’s just around the corner. The DLC is free to all Vermintide 2 owners, and it constitutes a brand new game mode that continues the ongoing narrative of Vermintide 2 while also introducing a brand new way to play the game.
Chaos Wastes is a new game mode for Vermintide 2, similar to the Weaves added in the previous DLC, Winds of Magic, but with a rogue-lite twist. In this new mode players will launch expeditions into the titular Wastes on their search for a lost citadel.
Each expedition will consist of a series of areas picked from the 15 new locations introduced in the DLC. The expeditions will be procedurally generated, and different every time; areas will not only come in a different order but will also be affected by mission modifiers that change how players approach each area if they want to survive and continue with their run. The rogue-lite elements come in the form of unique boons, miracles, weapons, and hero options players will get to select over the course of their run.
