Rats impressive!

The freshly reviewed - and Recommended - Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has raced out of the gate, selling more than 500,000 copies on PC in less than a week. It was only released Thursday, 8th March.

"We are proud and happy that gamers worldwide have taken Warhammer: Vermintide 2 to their hearts," said Martin Wahlund, CEO of developer Fatshark. "500,000 games sold was a milestone that we had, but not less than a week after release."

Vermintide will come to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and we hope this year, although when exactly hasn't been announced. Betas will be available in the spring, Fatshark said.

Johnny reviewed Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - he being a big fan of the first game and painting little Warhammer figures. "Vermintide 2 is a sequel done right," he wrote. "It's not overly ambitious or outlandish, instead choosing to build smartly on the solid foundations of its predecessor."
