Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Announces First DLC: Shadows over Bogenhafen


Since the release of Warhammer: Vermintide 2, Fatshark’s latest creation has enjoyed commercial and critical success. Our review called it a “Rat Smashing Day Out.” If that’s not an endorsement, I don’t know what is.

Now, Fatshark has announced the title’s first DLC, and it’s coming this very month.

“We are kicking off the fall with more content to Vermintide 2” says Martin Wahlund, CEO Fatshark. “Last week of August, the players will be invited to Bogenhafen, a city where the Heroes will be tested like never before by Grandfather Nurgle’s unpleasant attentions”

While the above teaser trailer displays fireworks, it’s safe to assume that not all is well in Bogenhafen and players will likely encounter many more rats and other enemies to smash. Aside from the vague threats issued by Fatshark’s CEO, we know precious little about what to prepare for in Bogenhafen. We’ve been told to expect more details on content closer to the DLC’s release on August 28th.

Shadows over Bogenhafen is the first DLC for Warhammer: Vermintide 2 but Fatshark has committed to continually updating their title. The Roadmap on the official website is currently being reworked, but we can probably expect future content to feed our appetites.

Shadows over Bogenhafen will be released for Xbox One and PC on August 28th.
