Warhammer: Vermintide 2’s Chaos Wastes growth is getting a serious update, themed round Warhammer’s first demon prince, the treacherous Be’lakor.

Chaos Wastes is a free growth for Vermintide 2 that launched in April final 12 months. It’s a side-adventure that takes the game’s cooperative rat-bashing and turns it right into a roguelike affair, with randomly generated ranges, a number of methods to progress, and its personal improve system based mostly round buying talents and tools with cash dropped by enemies.

Each run can also be overseen by one of many 4 Chaos gods (Khorne, Nurgle, Tzeentch and Slaanesh) who convey harmful modifiers into the world, similar to exploding enemies or environmental hazards that drain your life. The Be’lakor update basically provides Warhammer’s demon prince as one other malign overseer of the enjoyable. 

Announced at yesterday’s Warhammer Skulls competition, the Be’lakor update will infuse a brand new Be’lakor theme into the game’s randomly generated ranges, in addition to including a complete new space – The Shadow Temple, where gamers will apparently “take on the full force” of the demon prince. It additionally provides two new curses that’ll see gamers chased by floating purple skulls and harried by demonic totems that spawn enemies till destroyed.

Fraser loved vanilla Chaos Wastes when he tried it previous to the growth’s launch, saying “for a free update it already adds so much”. Like the growth, the Be’lakor update can also be free, and it comes alongside an 80% low cost on Vermintide 2 on Steam, as a part of the final Skullls sale. The low cost runs till June 8. Be’lakor, in the meantime, will swoop into the Chaos Wastes on June 14.
