After Fatshark released some new content here and there for their first-person survival game Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide, which included the Witch Hunter, the devs opened up a new playable beta for the first-person hack-and-slash shooter on October 16th.
To be honest, I don’t really get it, but it does look like a good game to burn some time, however many seem to enjoy the game. Speaking of enjoying the game, folks can jump in and play the beta right now over on Steam. For those that haven’t been following the game, it sets players in a setting where it is the “End Times,” and you have to survive against a horde of rat men in the universe of Warhammer.
In addition to this, you will be annihilating rat men or Skaven around the city of Ubersreik, while wielding dual swords or guns — and decapitating anything that resembles a rat. Of course, you won’t be doing this alone, you will have others helping you since the game sports up to four players in a match while you loot and survive.
Although up to four players can play in a single match together, you will be able to pick from five different characters, which ranges from the sly Witch Hunter, the Empire Soldier, a small Ranger Dwarf, the WayWatcher and the Bright Wizard. Each class brings something unique to the table, which comes in handy since you can mix and match different weapons to balance your team out, if you’re not a lone-wolf.
The game will also offer 13 different maps to play across, giving players a breath of fresh air if they want to switch up maps for a new style of play. Furthermore, the game will also mix up the way you fight enemies with a new system that implements enemies that you haven’t fought before, which is supposed to add a diverse style of tactics for you and your teammates.
For those that haven’t seen the game or want to see more, you can check this overview video that Curse Entertainment posted up, giving players a good idea what Vermintide is all about, as seen below.
