'Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide' (ALL) Drachenfels DLC Announced - Screens

by Rainier on May 4, 2016 @ 4:28 a.m. PDT

Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide is a co-operative action first person shooter and melee combat adventure set in the End Times of the iconic Warhammer Fantasy universe.

The time of mortals is ending, and the reign of Chaos draws ever closer. The Dark Gods are at last united in a singular purpose, loosing their madness across the world as never before. In the Empire of Sigmar, Karl Franz's gaze is focused on the incursion of the savage northmen, but it is not the only threat. As the Chaos moon Morrslieb waxes full, shrill voices echo through tunnels gnawed far beneath the Empire's cities, and a Skaven host swarms towards the surface. It emerges first in the city of Ubersreik, a screeching mass that consumes all before it. Soon Ubersreik is a charnel-town, drowning beneath the malevolent shadow of the Horned Rat.

Yet even in the darkest times, there are always champions to light the way. As Ubersreik cowers, five heroes, united by capricious fate, carry the fight to the rat-men. It remains to be seen whether they have the strength to survive, let alone work together long enough to thwart the invaders. One truth, however, is beyond all doubt: should these five fall, then Ubersreik will fall with them.

In Vermintide, the city of Ubersreik is under siege as players select from a band of five heroes with different play-styles and abilities, all equipped with unique gear and personalities. Working together cooperatively, players must use their individual attributes to survive an apocalyptic invasion from hordes of relentless, power hungry Skaven, across a range of environments stretching from the top of the Magnus Tower to the bowels of the Under Empire.


“Players get to explore three brand new levels around the abandoned Castle Drachenfels.“ says Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark and continues “Drachenfels also introduces deadly traps and torches to help navigate the pitch black dungeons”

The Drachenfels DLC will be released on May 26, and contains three new levels set outside of Ubersreik. Fight your way through the halls of Castle Drachenfels, dodge the deadly traps and navigate The Dungeons with the help of a torch, and stop the Skaven from completing their vile plans at Summoner’s Peak.

Key Features

  • Castle Drachenfels - Walk through the ancient rooms of Castle Drachenfels, covered in the blood and bones of the past.
  • Summoner’s Peak - Foil the Skaven’s plan by destroying the Nurgle portals and put a halt to their reinforcements.
  • The Dungeons - Stumble your way through the dark and dingy dungeon of Drachenfels, avoiding traps and using torches to light your way through the darkness. 

Two free DLCs has been released, and this is the second DLC that comes with a price tag – which will be announced closer to release.
