Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide is set to receive a host of new content on both PS4 and Xbox One.
Developers Fatshark have announced that the console version of Vermintide will be getting the Karak Azgaraz campaign DLC as well as the Quests & Contracts free update on 28th February. Both pieces of DLC have already been released on PC.
The Karak Azgaraz DLC is a paid campaign DLC that introduces three new maps, two weapons and new achievements. The content of the DLC are listed below:
- New Map: Khazid Kro – Journey through the outlying settlement of Khazid Kro
- New Map: The Cursed Rune – Explore the snow covered Grey Mountains
- New Map: Chain of Fire – Make your way to the top of the mountain to set the beacon
- New Weapon: Warpick for the Dwarf Ranger
- New Weapon: Falchion for the Witch Hunter
- Three New Achievements
The DLC won’t be available for free and will most likely be priced around the same as the Steam version which is for $9.
The free content update, Quests & Contracts add quality of life improvements to the game such as long term quests where players have to perform certain objectives over any number of sessions for rare loot as well as short term contracts that expire after a while but reward amazing boons.
One of the few well received Warhammer games in recent times, Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide has provided fans with an insane amount of content and replayability since launch and developers Fatshark continue to build upon the game with more and more content, both paid and free.
Vermintide allows players to choose from one of the various characters available to play solo or in a party of up to 3 other players to fight against the Vermintide, which comprises of hordes of giant rats known as the Skaven. The gameplay is quite smilar to the campaign of Left 4 Dead franchise.
