Oi, wazzok! It looks like Fatshark are at it again with something that could please its die-hard fanbase. Warhammer: Vermintide 2 will be getting a second DLC and it’s something that everyone who’s played the first game should be familiar with. That’s because it takes our heroes Back to Ubersreik as the DLC is aptly titled. Check out a teaser trailer below:
We’re The Ubersreik Five Or Four… Doesn’t Matter
What makes the Back to Ubersreik DLC particularly anticipated by fans is because it brings us back to the initial levels of Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide. The game, which released in 2015, brought visceral, in-your-face melee combat in the vein of online co-op games like Left 4 Dead. As many players have noted, it’s just like Left 4 Dead — except it’s set in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world and you’re fighting against hordes of Skaven ratmen.
Vermintide 2’s Back to Ubersreik DLC will take players back to the titular town nestled in the Empire’s crossroads. Three levels from this location will be remastered such as the trek to the Horn of Magnus. Fatshark has also teased a secret that awaits our characters. Who knows? With Vermintide 2’s timeline of events, what changes could’ve happened in Ubersreik since Saltzpyre, Kruber, and co. were away?
Vermintide 2 exceeded all expectations, managing to outsell its predecessor within a short timeframe since it released. However, a few technical issues and a content drought has had its player base hungrier than Skaven. Also, the first DLC, Shadows over Bogenhafen, earned some criticism due to only having a couple of levels and earnable cosmetics being the main focus. Dedicated players need more content, thinking that Fatshark might be lumberfoots for taking quite a long time.
Perhaps the Back to Ubersreik DLC — which releases in early December and costs $9.99 — might sate that appetite. And if it does satisfy players clamoring for content, maybe it will also bless their ravaged bodies. Like digital Sigmar.
