Development studio Fatshark has confirmed that it will also be releasing Warhammer: Vermintide 2 for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The PC version was already announced earlier this year.
The new game is said to revisit the fierce first-person co-op slaughter-fest featuring visceral and ground breaking melee action, set in the apocalyptic End Times of the war-ravaged Warhammer Fantasy Battles world.
Players can choose between 15 different careers, climb the talent trees, customize their arsenal to fit their unique play style, fight their way through a myriad of stunning levels, and challenge themselves in our new Heroic Deeds System.
The game will feature co-op multiplayer functionality that will allow up to four players to play together.
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2018 first for PC and later for Xbox One and Playstation 4.
The studio has also announced a console update for the original Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide that brings 4K resolution rendering to the Xbox One X along with a smoother frame rate, darker shadows and enhanced textures.
