Warhammer The End Times Vermintide Revealed; 4 Player Coop FPS
When was the last time that you player a Warhammer game? It might be time for a new one if it has been too long.
According to a story by Finnish magazine Pelaaja, Warhammer The End Times Vermintide is the new addition to the series which they define as a “multiplayer Skaven slaughter in Left 4 Dead style.” It is going to be a first person shooter with a four player cooperative play.
If you are familiar with the lore you would know that Ubersreik city was taken over by Skaven in The End Times; that is where the game is going to be set.
This also sets the course of the game straight by giving you the task of fighting for liberation. The four playable characters are going too be men from the Empire ho have come to the city in order to fight Skaven.
Fans of the series might be wondering why they changed the scenario from Orc enemies yo Skaven; well it is simple, Orcs have been used too many times already and the Skaven are big on numbers!
Warhammer The End Times Vermintide borrows from the L4D franchise in multiple areas like the AI; enemy spawn spots will change in each play, and there will be enemies like the tongue zombies that will drag you to the enemy hordes.
I also checked out the teaser website that had gone up with a timer. While the countdown has finished, a new date and time has appeared instead; now, they are asking you to wait for around four more hours. Apparently, the official announcement will come today at 2:00PM CET.
So either you can wait for the official reveal in order to get to know Warhammer The End Times Vermintide better, or you can head to this NeoGAF post for details on what the Finnish magazine has covered.
