Description

The world is ending... though few believe it. The once proud city of Ubersreik now stands in ruin at the hands of the dreaded Skaven army. Few have survived their ruthless invasion. Team up with 3 friends and work together to thin out the ratmen’s forces and drive them out of the city. Assume the role of one of five heroes, and hack, slash, smash, burn and pierce the vile Skaven using a multitude of weapons. Fight your way through the city of Ubersreik, from the top of the Magnus Tower to the bowels of the Under Empire. This is our last stand and only you can stem the Vermintide. Requires Xbox Live Gold membership.

Not really an FPS, more of a first person beat-em up

Great melee system and teamwork focused gameplay. Plays like a shooter on the easier settings, but turns into first person Bloodborne once you learn well timed dodges are the key to survival and saving your team. Yes, this is a teamwork game. Its not a race to the end of the level, so its ok to stop, turn around, and see how your team is doing. Theres usually some decent players online, but join the 'vermintide exterminators united' xbox club to find trustworty teammates. friendly bits of advice, go to gameplay settings and turn your player outlines from 'ON' to 'ALWAYS ON' that way you never lose track of your team, get comfy with the dodge and tag buttons, dodge will save you more than block. Even if in plain sight; tagging a special enemy will help your team line up head shots, espcially in the middle of a horde. dont throw the grimoires away they give you better loot. hold block while reviving teammates. Have fun.

Great Co-op game that is overlooked.

I am new to the Warhammer play and settings, but was not surprised to learn it has a strong fan base since it released its table top strategy games in the 80's. The setting of early renaissance era post Holy Roman Empire Germany sets it far apart from other magic/adventure RPGs enhances the uniqueness of the game..

A Fun Warhammer Experience

I got this for a steal and would highly recommend it. If it goes on sale in the near future I would definitely pick it up! Its focused heavily on coop and having a few friends is essential. The quick play won't allow you to play the narrative in order, so setting up a custom match w/ friends will help. Solid and challenging gameplay combined with good graphics and a fun customization system make for a unique spin on the tried and true L4D gauntlet run.

After the updates, the game is playable!

Previously from my last review, I stated this game was bugged and didn't recommend picking up Vermintide as it prevented some players to get pass the main menu to the game. After some hotfixes the bug was removed the game became much more enjoyable. I'm a big fan of Warhammer Fantasy/40k, and was following this game for a year when it first came on to PC. Finally after almost a year, we get a port! This game is a spiritual success of Left 4 Dead with loot, interesting characters, and a swarm of Skaven to slay. If you get this game, it would be best to recuit some friends to play it or search the internet for players that can help you, the BOTS are brain dead for the most part. It haves the same thrill and general gameplay of Left 4 Dead, so if you enjoy the games then this deserves your attention. There are some others here and there, but for the most part the game works as it should. Definitly would recommend this game to Warhammer fans and Co-op fanatics alike.

Solid Indie Game

This game is inspired by Left 4 Dead by Valve, except that it has gear and loot. The maps are fun and unique, the enemies are fun to fight, and the grind is real but fair. My only complaint is how loot is dished out. I would prefer if the game only dropped loot for the class you are using rather than a mixed bag. The lore book is a nice touch for us less versed in Warhammer. The AI bots can be kind of dumb, however. Finally, the difficulty settings are perfectly tuned. Overall, a solid title with those common indie team frayed edges. I cannot wait for the sequel. 4/5

This is Warhammer not L4D

When this game launched it did have a few issues with freezing, crashing, and losing connection. A couple patches later and these issues are fixed. Vermintide is a 4 player co-op FPS set in the Warhammer universe, the Skaven (aka ratmen) finally decide that the surface world and all things there must die. You can choose from 5 heroes that are trying to survive the seemingly endless Vermintide. This game plays best with friends and rewards you for playing on the more challenging difficultes. You earn loot at the end of each successful mission based on dice rolls. You can then upgrade gear, unlock traits, or reroll the traits. All in all this game offers a ton of content and is looking like a really good buy.

This game is great

The only thing thats bad is the servers are down yes. But its not their fault they are a smaller company so they werent expecting 1 million+ people to play their game. For those who got the game for free be patient please this game doesnt need so many 1 stars because its not their fault. We all need to remember that when the servers are back on this game will be so fun to play since we 1 million+ people.

Left 4 Dead with Big Rats and more!

This game is very similar to left 4 dead. You and three others progress by doing various tasks over the course of a mission. Overall very fun game, definitely with friends!

Left 4 GW style

Lets face it... this game is left 4 dead with a Games Workshop face lift and not in a bad way. This game is hardcore on any difficulty and teamwork is a must. Best part to me is level completion rewards, yup new gear for great reply value topped with gear upgrades. The grind is not bad for lots of gear. I would LOVE to see this game in a 40k theme being space marines killing tyrnids with dlc for fighting chaos, tau, goblins, and all xenos threats.

Medieval Left 4 Dead :D

I love this game! It reminds me a lot of Left 4 Dead except with a different enemy and in another era. It's cool to also find out that Fat Shark had a lot of inspiration from those games. Anyways, this game is intense with tons of carnage, and the replayability is great!
