After what feels like a very long wait, co-op rat smasher Vermintide 2 now has a PlayStation 4 release date: 18th December. That's just one month away!

Before that, you can try the game on PlayStation 4 via a closed beta if you pre-order Vermintide 2's Ultimate Edition from the PlayStation Store. Doing so will also grant you four days early access to the full game before it launches, alongside some other gubbins.

So far, it seems like the only way to access the closed beta is to put your money down for the game's £45 Ultimate Edition. This also contains extra skins, portrait frames and a keep statue, as well as its two DLCs.

Vermintide 2's Shadows over Bögenhafen DLC is already available elsewhere, while its Back to Übersreik pack - announced earlier this week - arrives in December also.
