I really liked Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide. It lacks some originality, but what it presented was incredibly well-made and fun to play.
Turns out a lot of other people liked it too, as developer Fatshark announced it has managed to shift 300,000 copies since its release only a few weeks ago. For an indie released in the same month as Guitar Hero: Live, Halo 5, and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, that is pretty damn impressive.
Fatshark isn’t slowing down post-release though, as it also announced there will be some free DLC coming to Vermintide on December 2. Sigmar’s Blessing will mainly improve the game’s loot system, which I had no problem with but has been a complaint from other players ever since launch.
The DLC will give players the ability to control what kind of loot is dropped, as well as sacrifice loot at a new altar in the Inn to have a chance at even better stuff. On top of that there will be new item traits which give different powers to weapons, and a new “red” class, which will include gear that is better than anything in the game at the moment.
In other words: lots of better loot, and it'll be less of a pain in the arse to get the stuff you actually want for the class you want. Neat!
