Warhammer: Vermintide 2
In Brief
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is an online first person cooperative based game (with a single player mode) on the lines of Left 4 Dead but instead of zombies you fight and defend against characters from the world of Warhammer 40000. You play with three other human players in coop mode (or bots in single player mode). If you enjoyed the Left 4 Dead series this is a great alternative which has some amazing environments to navigate through.
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has appeared here a few times since it was released back in March 2018; we even got 100 beta keys HERE a few weeks before its full release and back in August 18 we gave away some X Box One keys for the game. Since March this year we've had six opportunities to win keys/game passes for the full version of Warhammer: Vermintide 2, HERE {10th May 18 10 keys}, HERE, {7th June 18 - 25 keys}, HERE {19th July 18 - 25 keys}, HERE {14th Aug 18 - 10 keys}, HERE {Jan 13th 19 - 25 keys} and HERE {16th March 19 - 24 keys}, plus we've had a couple of opportunities for the previous version, Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide, (HERE {3rd May 18 - 50 key}, and HERE {14th July 18 - 25 keys}) , which was released on Steam Oct 2015. Both games are similar to Valves Left 4 Dead series in the single player and coop game play except instead of zombies you get characters from the world of Warhammer 40000.

Installation:
Assuming you win a Steam key for Warhammer: Vermintide 2 once you've found it (should be sent to the email you used to enter the giveaway - it must be the email you first used to sign into the game giveaway site. If you’ve used a throwaway email there may be problems getting a key, because the key may be sent to that email. If you have any problems, use the contact form. You must activate the game via your Steam client. Once activated it will be permanently tied to your Steam profile and you'll be able to install the game at anytime, anywhere on any computer, so long as you can validate who you are (usually via emails etc.). If you don't have a Steam account, you will first have to download and install the Steam client HERE
Then create a Steam profile/account. Once that has been completed you can input the Steam code that you've received (after completing the form filling) via the game button along the top of the Steam client, (located between friends and Help). From the drop-down menu select 'Activate a product on Steam'. This opens a product activation window. Just follow the prompts to complete activation. Once the Steam code has been accepted, the game will be associated with your Steam account and can be installed any time you wish. Once the game is officially released, the beta will no longer be accessible (as far as I know).

The Game:
Features:
Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide reminded us just how much we missed Left 4 Dead, then gave us a melee-focused fantasy version to make us feel better. Now Fatshark are attempting to make an even better sequel. How are they planning to improve it? Drop the clumsy “The End Times” part of the title and add Chaos. That should do it.
Our Warhammer: Vermintide 2 interview with Martin Wahlund and Mats Andersson! Warhammer Vermintide and Strange Brigade Devs Explain Why There Aren't More Left 4 Dead Games! I had a choice of two characters – Kerillian the Elf, previously a Waywatcher but now a Shade (and presumably a Dark Elf), and human Markus Kruber, previously the stuffy Empire Solder and now a Knight. Kerillian has a long spear, does extra damage from behind, and has a Stealth power ‘Infiltrate’. Markus has a huge hammer, the passive ability to gain health when close to death, and a lovely Charge move to send those Skaven flying. In the absence of my favourite Witch Hunter, Markus is the one for me.
We arrived on the outskirts of Ussingen, an extremely badly-off town that’s just been raided by the forces of Chaos and Skaven. Yes, in Vermintide 2 the big twist is that the two backstabbing forces of darkness in the Warhammer universe have teamed up. They hate each other, but they hate you more.

In the midst of a few burning caravans we found some Chaos warriors, and I realized I also had an auto-rifle. I gunned a couple down and discovered that these horned swine were far tougher than the usual Skaven cannon fodder, so had to switch to my giant hammer very quickly. Squishing a few brains in their own helmets never gets old. Then they starting pouring on us from all angles growling “scream for mercy” and the hammer got twice as much work.
If I had one complaint about the whole experience, which I’ll mention now (and apart from it only being single-player), it’s that the graphics look kind of washed out. It might just be this particular map, or the early build, but no matter how good the game generally looked, and it does look good, it was always very difficult to tell who a member of my team was and who was a Chaos Warrior. Multiple times I’d think I’d killed everyone, my team would be standing around and I’d go “hang on, don’t I only have three team members?” And then would get attacked by the “extra” party member.
Combined the Skaven and Chaos make for a potent – and, most importantly, original – combination. Vermintide 1 was, perhaps justifiably, criticized for looking and feeling just like Valve’s Left 4 Dead. This was most noticeable with the Skaven enemies since for the most part all the rats fell into the same classes as the Infected in L4D – the Rat Ogre was the Tank, Packmaster was the Jockey, Gutter Runners were Hunters, etc. With the introduction of Chaos suddenly Vermintide has a lot more variety.

Giant armoured Chaos Knights barred the entrance to Ussingen, slowly advancing but powerful and could take a lot of punishment. Fat, shuffling poison-spewing Priests stayed out of combat but got in the way. Then we have the terrifying Spawn of Chaos that ended the level in a boss fight, a giant, pulsating mass of flesh and tentacles that can pick up allies (and you) and even eat them (and you)! Never saw anything like that in Left 4 Dead, I can tell you.
In general the experience of Vermintide 2 is exactly as you’d expect if you’ve played the first game, or Left 4 Dead. You and three others (AI or, preferably, human) make your way through a town besieged by Skaven and Chaos troops and you have to kill them, take out the occasional swarm of opponents or special enemies that come your way, scavenge for items like Healing Draughts, Bombs or Potions, and survive.
Two major things have changed from Vermintide 1, as far as I can see. Character Classes have been revamped and you can customize classes a lot more now, which I didn’t get to try out but both Kerillian and Markus played differently to how they did in the last game. Secondly, the introduction of the armies of Chaos adds much-needed variety and distances the Vermintide series even further from Left 4 Dead – while still keeping the addictive game play intact.

Conclusion:
If you loved the Left 4 Dead series, and the Warhammer series and love playing cooperative online games with friends, this is definitely a game to buy (if you don't win one of the keys on offer). In the meantime, some lucky community members will be able to get a copy of this game via the keys being offered here today. This second in the series is a big improvement on the first release. The graphics are amazing, game play seems more fluid than the first and you get a much better variety of enemies to go up against than the original.
Suggestions:
If you're one of the lucky winners of a Steam key for the Warhammer: Vermintide 2 please give some feedback about your opinion of the game, for example, what you liked or disliked about it, or how it could be improved from your point of view. What, improvements, if any, would change your opinion?
There are thousands of subscribers to the game giveaway of the day every weekend which makes this an ideal forum for giving developers ideas as to what their consumers (i.e you) would like to see in a game; for example, you could suggest extra content such as better or more original mini games, or a level editor that you would like to see that would make it more appealing to you. Maybe you think the graphics are a little dated and are in need of re skinning, or maybe you've just had enough of the genre and want to see something different or something with more originality?
If we get some decent reviews, judging by the number of times this game has been offered directly from the developers we may get more opportunities to offer keys here on the game giveawayoftheday project.


I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the developer Fatshark for providing yet more keys for Warhammer: Vermintide 2 and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games.

michael Shayne,

Good luck Michael,
Don't forget to return every day; (I nearly always forget, lol). It's an excellent coop game, though the single player campaign is also a lot of fun.
I just noticed that the game is on sale over on Steam HERE at the moment with 75% off. I have the base game; got a copy from the developer for posting the review above. (I don't have any of the expansions, so am thinking of buying them while they are on sale. :)
I loved the Left 4 Dead franchise, but I think with its similar game play mechanics Warhammer Vermintide 2 is better becasue there are other extras. I'm hoping my friends win a key so that we can play the online coop campaigns; (I've emailed them all with a link to the giveaway page as they are not regular game giveaway community members)
