'Warhammer: Vermintide 2' (ALL) Music Scored By Jesper Kyd - Trailer

In Warhammer: Vermintide 2 it's time for players to return to the first-person co-op experience with intense melee action.

Set in the dark and grim Warhammer Fantasy world, you must join forces with up to three other players to tackle the endless hordes of enemies. Equipped with a variety of melee and ranged weapons, you and your team are all that stands between utter defeat and victory - and if you fall so will the Empire.

Vermintide 2 is a melee action game pushing the boundaries of the first person co-op genre. The game introduces the dark, bloody and twisted Chaos as an enemy faction. Other new features include 15 hero careers, new environments, talent trees and the proprietary Heroic Deeds System.

Fatshark revealed that BAFTA award-winning Danish composer Jesper Kyd is returning to compose an original soundtrack for the sequel to the first-person melee/shooter Warhammer: The End Times - Vermintide, based on Games Workshop’s popular Warhammer Fantasy Battles world. Vermintide 2 introduces the dark, bloody and twisted Norse tribe ‘Chaos’ as an enemy faction.

Inspired by Norse mythology, Jesper Kyd’s original score for Vermintide 2 explores ancient tribal music and dark magic fantasy elements as well as evolving the raw acoustic soundscape he developed for the first game. Kyd channels his Scandinavian roots, blending Viking and Norse-inspired vocals, ritualistic percussion styles and new custom-made instruments built specifically for Vermintide 2, to create another unique soundtrack experience.

Key Features:

  • Ruthless 4 Player Co-operative Experience: The combined forces of Chaos and Skaven are merciless, and it will require a co-ordinated team effort to survive their never-ending onslaught.
  • 5 Heroes with 15 Career Paths: Choose between 15 unique careers, each with different appearances, abilities, talents and weapon arsenals to best suit your preferred combat style.
  • Chaos and Skaven Working Together: Skaven and Chaos armies have formed a pact to plunge the world into death and decay, with horrifying specials and bosses.
  • Talent Trees & Progression: Level up, choose between specialized talents for your hero, and excel throughout the game.
  • The Adventure Continues: Explore a wide range of breathtaking new levels set in and around Helmgart, a fortress city protecting the Bretonnian border of the Empire.
  • New Improved Loot System: Be rewarded with relevant loot for the chosen career at the end of each successful mission.
  • Fight Overwhelming Enemy Hordes: Skaven prefer strength in numbers, and with the Chaos at their side the heroes must be prepared to overcome unimaginable odds.
  • Twitch Integration: More information about the Twitch Integration will be presented via a live stream in December.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is making its way to PC via Steam, as well as PS4 and Xbox One, in Q2 2018.
