Welcome to your Vermintide 2 journey!

This game may seem like just another action-RPG at first, but there's actually a lot more to it than meets the eye. Becoming the kind of player that can beat missions on the hardest difficulty isn't just about gearing up with sweet loot -- you'll need to acquire knowledge of how the game works and develop advanced technical skills as well as split-second decision-making abilities. Thankfully, it's also a coop game so you'll be undertaking this journey with others.
