Warhammer: Vermintide 2 box art
Name: Warhammer: Vermintide 2
Release date: March 8, 2018
Platforms: PC, XONE
Genre: Action, Survival

Description

Vermintide 2 is a first-person action game developed by Fatshark. It is the sequel to Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide. The End Times are coming. The game is following the heroes from the first game against the Skaven hordes of Clan Fester and a chaos warband Rotbloods, dedicated to the god of disease and decay.

The game is composed of various mini-campaigns, each representing a story. Players can play in groups of four, and they go through the levels battling big hordes of enemies, with them varying between the Skaven ratment and the Chaos marauders. The game features five different characters to play as, each having three career paths, each career path with different skills and abilities.

Recommendation

Vermintide 2 is really great in creating tense moments - where you will be the last fighting member of a party and with your last hitpoints finish off the last ratmen by bashing their skull out, saving the day, it really is a satisfying feeling. The combat is tactile and satisfying, where slicing enemies or burning them with fire is the main reason the game is very fun to play.  The career progression is quite expansive, but can be daunting for someone who doesn!t know the game very well.

Key store recommendations

Key resellers are sites that sell game keys at (usually) much lower prices than traditional retailers. They do this through a combination of ways, like selling keys that come in a bundle, that were on a sale and many other ways.

The reason why we separated them from traditional retailers is that these stores have been the subject of a divisive discussion for a long time.

The reason we include them is that you can buy keys on these sites usually for very big discounts, sometimes quite ridiculously cheap. In 99 % of cases, they will work the same as a much more expensive key would. For many people, especially people from countries with lower standards of living, this can mean big savings that have a significant impact on their life, while also playing the game and not resorting to piracy.

If you are buying on these stores, we have a few recommendations to follow:

  1. Just know there is a tiny risk. Either your purchase will fail and you will use your money, or that the key you recieved won't work. It has never happened to us or anyone we know, but it has certainly happened to a number of people on the internet. That is partly the nature of the business, partly un-consumer business practices of some of the stores. In 99.9 % of cases, the purchase will be ok, but sometimes it won't.
  2. If the price is not cheaper on key stores (it almost always is, though), then we recommend to buy from the traditional, established retailers.
  3. If it is a store with multiple sellers with ratings, always pick the one with the highest number of sold keys and ratings. The probability of a successful purchase is much higher if buying from a reputable key seller.
