Vermintide 2, much like the original, is a game that glories in swamping you in hordes of enemies. You and your friends stand as four stones in their path, cleaving through the scrum with heavy two-handed hammers, longswords, and polearms. Being Warhammer, your enemies aren’t humans, but overgrown rats - the Skaven plague.
Vermintide is at its best when you and your team are on the cusp of being totally overwhelmed. Developers Fatshark worked hard to fine-tune the chaos, finding the perfect time to send another wave of rats charging at you, or to drop a ratling gunner into the fray, or the most disruptive moment to hit your team with a poison wind globadier.
