This game is essentially Left 4 Dead meets Warhammer. You and 3 other players run through a map while fighting rat men called Skaven instead of
zombies. Just like in Left 4 Dead, there's special enemies in addition to the general mob type enemies. There's the types of enemies that are ogre
types (tank in L4D), toss gas grenades, pull you with a rope, etc.... Again, they're the equivalent of the special enemies as in L4D.
A few minutes of gameplay.
Totalbiscut talks about the game.
There's also a loot system added to this game. After you complete a map, you get to roll some dice and, depending on how well you roll, you get the
chance to get a new piece of gear for one of your characters. If everyone dies in a level, you get nothing. You can pick up some items that give you
extra dice throughout some of the levels to.
There's 13 levels in the game currently, Some levels take around 30+ minutes, while others take only about 15. The game came out yesterday and it's
mostly stable, at least from what I've played so far. Oh, and it's half the price of a regular AAA game, $30. It's hovering around a 90% positive
review score on steam currently.
So, if you a fan of L4D or that style of gaming, you might want to take a look at this.
ETA - There's no versus mode though.

Combat gets intense at points, truly haven't had this much fun since L4D2.
Same here. Haven't had a good run and hack n slash game come out since L4D2. A few games tried to do it, but didn't do it too well.
20 hours in and I still have the last 4 or so maps left to unlock. The Wheat and Chaff map is insane though, and it doesn't look like I will get past
it anytime soon. The developers said the special enemy spawns were a bit messed up on that map and they're going to tone it down a bit soon. First
minute into that map and our team had to fight 1 rat ogre, 4 stormvermin spawns, 2 assassins, 2 mini gunners, and a poison thrower. Did not survive
Seems a lot of people have never played L4D that are playing Vermintide, which I'm ok with, but people tend to think they can rambo the game.
Loot rolls can be brutal especially when you hardly get to the end because the host disconnects or whatnot, was having hella problems ontop of crappy
team work. I tend to play on Hard in hopes of avoiding those who refuse to work as a team.
