Swedish developer Fatshark today announced that it is working on Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide, a cooperative first-person shooter and melee combat adventure set in the End Times of the Warhammer universe.
Vermintide puts players in the shoes of one of a band of five heroes, each with different play-styles, abilities, gear, and personalities. “Working together cooperatively, players must use their individual attributes to survive an apocalyptic invasion from hordes of relentless, power hungry Skaven, across a range of environments stretching from the top of the Magnus Tower to the bowels of the Under Empire,” Fatshark explains.
“Combining gritty combat with cooperative multiplayer action, Vermintide will provide the player with a completely new perspective of the Warhammer Fantasy universe, through the eyes of the heroes they play,” said Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark. “Staying true to the fantasy lore, with familiar foes and locations, we look forward to winning the hearts of enthusiasts and newcomers with this new take on the Warhammer story.”
Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and is scheduled to release in the second half of 2015.
