Prepare to be challenged like never before as you and your team desperately try to survive the never-ending onslaught. Choose between 15 different careers, climb the talent trees, customize your arsenal to fit your unique play style, fight your way through a myriad of stunning levels, and challenge yourself in our new Heroic Deeds System.

so front page (https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/)says giveaway, but when pushing link it turns into a competition - that is not nice, and also misleading

............................Moderator Comment...........................


The site opened on Dec 4th, 2006 following its sister sites opening a few months earlier. The main site gave away applications every day (and still does) Before the game site was opened the main site would give games every three or four days. Once the game giveaway site opened we were given arcade games every day until March April 2008 following the financial crisis, which saw many game developer studios go out of business. Arcade game used to cost $19.99 each but following the crisis, most arcade games were cut in price to around $6. Shortly after this (April 2008 games went to weekends only and continue to this day. It has become increasingly more difficult to find developers willing to give away their games, there are several reasons for this, for example the introduction of the indie bundles where you can buy a bundle of top quality games for around 95% reduction in price, plus many other sites now also give away games also sites lile Gametop, freeGamePick, MyPlaycity and others give games away and through advertising on their sites earn money, part of which is paid to the developers of the games.

The reason the Gamegiveawayoftheday site hasn't changed its name is that the name earned a really good standing with the major search engines due to the fact that it never allowed any malware to be downloaded with any game it has ever given away. If they changed their name they would lose this standing.
The competition games were added back in April 2016 to give the community more variety and better quality games, for example, Conan Exiles, (£26.99/$29.99. We still get commercial arcade games for free every weekend that do not require you to enter a competition so the giveaway title is still applicable.

Moderator that was not what dinmor was refering to! On the main site it is advertising this competition AS a giveawayoftheday.com with a procede to download page green button that is normally used for giveaways only on both sites. Even the countdown clock matched the active giveaway on the main site giving the impression it had not long started up, only on clicking through it turns out to be click bait for a competition with just 1 hour left to run.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 beta
In Brief
An online coop based game on the lines of Left 4 Dead but in the world of Warhammer. You play with four other human players in coop mode.


Introduction:
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Vermintide. The time has arrived to revisit the fierce first-person co-op slaughter-fest featuring visceral and ground-breaking melee action, set in the apocalyptic End Times of the war-ravaged Warhammer Fantasy Battles world.
Our 5 heroes from the first game have returned to take on an even greater threat – the combined forces of a malevolent and destructive Chaos army and the swarming Skaven horde. Prepare to be challenged like never before as you and your team desperately try to survive the never-ending onslaught. Choose between 15 different careers, climb the talent trees, customize your arsenal to fit your unique play style, fight your way through a myriad of stunning levels, and challenge yourself in our new Heroic Deeds System. The only thing standing between utter defeat and victory is you and your allies. If you fall - so will the Empire.
Reference accessed HERE 17th February 2018.


Installation:
Assuming you receive a beta 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 while the beta version of the game is live. Once the game is officially released, the beta will no longer be accessible (as far as I know).


If you have a problem installing or activating or getting Warhammer: Vermintide 2 beta to work, please visit the problems section over in the Game Discussion forums, which I've now incorporated into the FAQ's thread, and which you can find HERE or check the Steam forums or contact Steam support.
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. We’ve got an early play of a level of Warhammer: Vermintide 2, and we’re already impressed
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’s 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 was a member of my team 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.
At the moment Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has a general release date of Q1 2018. It’s available to pre-order now on Steam for the reasonable price of £22.99/$26.99.
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 gameplay intact.

Videos of Warhammer: Vermintide 2 beta:
You can see several videoas of game play HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.
Conclusion:
If you loved the Left 4 Dead series, and the Warhammer series and love playing cooperative online games with friends, this is a game to buy when it is fully released. In the meantime, some lucky community members will be able to get a taste of this game via the beta keys being offered here today. It will not grant you a free copy of the final game, but what you get is well worth applying for. Not all the game content is unlocked yet, but what there is, in my opinion is very playable. 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 receive a Steam key for the Warhammer: Vermintide 2 beta 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?


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