You’re going to be able to play as the baddies! Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is getting a player versus player Versus mode, where one team plays as four heroes, and the other as four Skaven or Chaos.
But isn’t this – PvP – something developer Fatshark said it wouldn’t do? Yes. “It’s true,” Fatshark wrote in a statement on the Vermintide 2 website. “We have felt in the past that as a studio we wanted to focus on our proven strengths – making a great co-op game. We like to think Vermintide 2 and it’s predecessor deliver on that goal.
“We have always had PvP as a mode for Vermintide in the corner of our minds, though. In terms of focus, it’s been in the ‘cool to have’ box for a very long time, but in terms of priority, the core co-op experience remained at the very top of our list. This hasn’t really changed even with the development of Versus.
