One of the best games I played when I first got in to game reviewing was Warhammer End Times Vermintide. That very long title hid behind it a solid mele version of the left 4 dead formula that pitted players against hundreds of enemies. It had is short comings, and getting gear was an intense grind or playin the same levels again and again. But, it was a good solid game, and tons of fun in groups.

Now Fat Shark is back with a brand new game. Warhammer Vermintide 2 was revealed some time ago, and today we finally get the release date. Fat Shark will be releasing Warhammer Vermintide 2 on March 8th.

The Warhammer: Vermintide 2 release date was announced today via a live stream which went under the name Date Night. If you missed it, you can watch it again at

“Being passionate fans of the Warhammer IP, we’ve always wanted to create a Warhammer sequel that both stayed true to the beautifully dark atmosphere of the world but also brought new ideas and experiences for players. It’s been years of work but on March 8th we look forward to joining forces with players everywhere to defend Helmgart from evil
