Nordic Games and Fatshark officially announced that Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide is going to get a console release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s going to get released for the consoles later this October, and you can check out the announcement trailer in the player below.
Fatshark is going to self-publish the digital download copies for both console versions, and Nordic Games will distribute the physical editions for the game worldwide. Speaking on the news Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund stated: “More than half a million PC gamers have already taken Vermintide to their heart, and this fall it’s time for console players to do the same. The consoles will get an extended version that includes all DLCs released for the PC version to date. We are over the moon to be working with Nordic Games on this release as their experience and expertise are incomparable.”
Nordic Games’ Reinhard Pollice added: “The combination of Fatshark and Warhammer seems too good to be true. We do have quite a few fanboys in our team, who played Krater, Lead and Gold, and – of course – also played the hell out of Warhammer Vermintide on PC. To say we are stoked to work with Fatshark on Warhammer Vermintide for consoles and the physical edition for PC is the understatement of 2016 in my book.”
The new console versions will feature the challenging Last Stand game mode and its two maps. This is where players fend off hordes of Skaven in increasingly difficult battles. Additionally, Sigmar’s Blessing and the Drachenfels DLC will be includes for the console release. Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide arrives on October 4 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
