Developed by Fatshark, Warhammer: End Times Vermintide features first person, co-op action gameplay that will be set towards the end years of the Warhammer universe, brought by the hand of the vicious Skaven faction. The game is scheduled for a release in the second half of 2015 and will be available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
The game combines the vast and riveting lore that the Warhammer universe accommodates with an intense first person perspective and innovative co-op mechanics.
End Times will pit players against the ravenous Skaven who will push players to their limits in a vast number of locations ranging from the spire of Magnus Tower to the subterranean under empire.
In a statement Fatshark described the game and its enticing aspects:
“The time of mortals is ending, and the reign of Chaos draws ever closer. The Dark Gods are at last united in a singular purpose, loosing their madness across the world as never before. In the Empire of Sigmar, Karl Franz’s gaze is focused on the incursion of the savage northmen, but it is not the only threat. As the Chaos moon Morrslieb waxes full, shrill voices echo through tunnels gnawed far beneath the Empire’s cities, and a Skaven host swarms towards the surface. It emerges first in the city of Ubersreik, a screeching mass that consumes all before it. Soon Ubersreik is a charnel-town, drowning beneath the malevolent shadow of the Horned Rat.”
“Yet even in the darkest times, there are always champions to light the way. As Ubersreik cowers, five heroes, united by capricious fate, carry the fight to the rat-men. It remains to be seen whether they have the strength to survive, let alone work together long enough to thwart the invaders. One truth, however, is beyond all doubt: should these five fall, then Ubersreik will fall with them.”
