The Warhammer meets Left 4 Dead Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide has been a resounding success and to celebrate developer Fatshark will be releasing a free content pack - Sigmar’s Blessing. With new traits, weapons, and loot, it should provide plenty of reason for players to keep fighting at the higher levels.
“We couldn’t be happier to reach 300,000 sales of Vermintide so far and the player reception and feedback, has left us humbled more than anything,” said Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark. “I’m super excited to announce that Sigmar’s Blessing will be free for all current and future Vermintide players, plus, going forward, Vermintide will offer alternating free and paid DLC”.
The free DLC will introduce a number of new features including player control of what loot is dropped in-game and a new altar in the Inn, that provides ways of sacrificing existing loot to improve players arsenal. In addition to this, the DLC will include completely new traits added to the loot tables and new, unique weapon drops in the “red” loot class for each of the 40 weapon types in Vermintide. Each red weapon features a set trait combination, taking top tier gameplay to a new level.
In addition to this a new survival/horde mode is also planned as well as a hardcore mode that will remove just about every on-screen component for increased realism.
Oh, and a console version of the game is expected early next year for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
