The sequel to Vermintide is due next year, but Fatshark still have a piece of DLC in them for the first game. ‘Death on the Reik’ is available today, and for those who pre-ordered Vermintide 2, it’s automatically unlocked in-game.

I know this, because it’s written in big capital letters no fewer than three times throughout the post on Vermintide’s Steam community hub. Hopefully everybody should be able to spot that.

Death on the Reik otherwise costs $7.00 USD and adds a pair of new maps to the game (Reikwald Forest and River Reik). Your trip to the Reik is in an effort to chase down one of the Innkeeper’s men, who has stolen some dangerous books. It’s probably best if the Skaven don’t get hold of those, so you’ll need to get to the Dawnrunner barge, capture the thief, and destroy those tomes.

In addition, Vermintide has been patched to version 1.10. After the trailer, you’ll find the notes for both DLC and patch.
