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.

Fatshark has decided to add something extra to Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide and at the same time introduce what may well be the strangest DLC name ever. Schleusselschloss is a brand new location for the soon to be released – and totally free – new Vermintide game mode Last Stand.

“The Heroes will face unlimited numbers of Skaven with only one objective in mind – and it’s not to buy the players dinner,” says Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund. “Last Stand is a new game mode that brings all the rats to the yard in one free level. Hordes of Skaven will try to eliminate the heroes one after the other. How many rounds can you handle?”

The Last Stand DLC will include one free level set in Ubersreik. If you want to venture outside the walls of Ubersreik, pick up the Schleusselschloss DLC and take it to the woods. Anyone that buys Schleusselschloss will be able to invite other players that don’t own the DLC to join them against the Skaven hordes. 

If you have a hard time remembering Schleusselschloss, then help Fatshark give SCHLUESSELSCHLOSS a nickname. The 100 best suggestions will get the map for free.
