Well Fat Shark has done it again. Warhammer Vermintide 2 has sold half a million copies. The epic tale of 5 heroes against the hordes of the Skaven, Northmen, and Chaos, was released officially on Thursday to massive fanfare. Now just 5 days later, the game has sold over 500,000 copies on steam.

Martin Wahlund said of the sales:

We are proud and happy that gamers worldwide have taken Warhammer: Vermintide 2 to their hearts. 500,000 games sold was a milestone that we had, but not less than a week after release.”

I cant say I am surprised at the sales, but if you are one of the few people who haven’t gotten the game yet, I encourage you to first check out this awesome launch trailer, then go to this link on Steam and see what its all about.

Everything that was good about Vermintide is back with a vengeance. There are more weapons, more crating, more levels. I spent about 16 hours my self playing the game from Thursday to Sunday night, and can not recommend enough that you also play it. Many of the issues from Vermintide have been fixed, including the scarcity of loot, with out the removal of the immense difficulty curve, that I so loved about the last game.
