Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide has been officially announced for the PS4, and will be releasing later this year on October 4th around the world. Fatshark and Nordic Games made the announcement today with a press release stating that Nordic Games will be handling the publishing duties for the physical edition of the game, while Fatshark will handle digital distribution.
“More than half a million PC gamers have already taken Vermintide to their heart, and this fall it’s time for console players to do the same. The consoles will get an extended version that includes all DLCs released for the PC version to date” says Martin Wahlund, CEO at Fatshark, and continues, “we are over the moon to be working with Nordic Games on this release as their experience and expertise are incomparable.”
“The combination of Fatshark and Warhammer seems too good to be true. We do have quite a few fanboys in our team, who played Krater, Lead and Gold, and – of course – also played the hell out of Warhammer Vermintide on PC. To say we are stoked to work with Fatshark on Warhammer Vermintide for consoles and the physical edition for PC is the understatement of 2016 in my book” comments Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at Nordic Games.
The console release will include the Last Stand game mode and two maps to play on. Last Stand sees players fight off the endless hordes of Skaven as the waves becoming increasingly difficult. We do love a challenge, don’t we?
That’s not all. The console release will also ship with Sigmar’s Blessing and Drachenfels DLC with three additional adventure maps set outside of Ubersreik. Lovely stuff indeed.
There’s a trailer down below, so give it a watch and note the date your pocket diary. We all still use pocket diaries, yeah?
