Warhammer: Vermintide 2 won't have loot boxes for sale

Revealed last August, Warhammer: Vermintide II has finally received a launch date.

Yes, good news indeed!

There's a short Q&A from the Vermintide 2 reveal stream on Reddit with other scraps of information should you want them. "One thing that worked really well [in the first Vermintide] was the banter between the characters that we really love".

In the original Vermintide, players rolled for loot after finishing a campaign.

This is a particularly noteworthy issue right now because of the uproar over loot boxes, especially in big-budget, premium-priced games like Shadow of War and Battlefront 2.

This is where Fatshark, the developers of Warhammer: Vermintide, takes a different stance.

Vermintide 2 is a four player co-op game where players join forces to fight off the Skaven and battle against the Chaos armies, as they try to stop the world falling into the depths of decay. Well, Fatshark delivered on their promise and today released a trailer that includes two minutes of pre-alpha gameplay footage, that looks BRUTAL. This also isn't the first time Fatshark have said that they don't have any plans on adding microtransactions to their games.

Despite being labelled as a free weekend, Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide (which is typically just called Warhammer: Vermintide) is free to play from October 18 to October 26, giving you all weekend and then some to try it out. Loot should always come from gameplay, never from wallets.
