Fatshark, the studio behind games like War of the Roses, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 and several others, has recently announced its brand new project – and it’s about Warhammer. And rat-people. This is not Warhammer 40k, mind you: no, End Times – Vermintide is set to take place in the medieval world of fantasy Warhammer, with an awful number of vicious Skaven (the aforementioned rat-people) apparently on the rise. So that’s where you come in, with trusty sword or other pointy object in hand, ready to do a bit of rat-cleaning, co-op Left 4 Dead style. Vermintide, not entirely unlike Valve’s influential zombie shooter, will have you choose between a select few characters (in this case, five in total), all with varying skills and play styles, as you co-operate with your fellow team members in surviving the onslaught of the Skaven. According to a Finnish magazine, two of these characters will be the pyromaniac Fire Mage and the Witch Hunter, preferring to wield both a dagger and a pistol – and I will admit, the overall package does look mighty atmospheric based on the screenshots we’ve been shown thus far.

The game, as we have also learned, is currently scheduled to be released during the second half of 2015 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
