Fatshark’s Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide – which we adored in our review and end of year awards – will be receiving three new maps when the new DLC Karak Azgaraz release on Xbox One on February 28th.
Set among the snowy peaks of the Grey Mountains, our heroes are once again tasked with foiling the Skaven’s devious plot. This time, players must fight through snow, ice and ancient Dwarfen halls to stop them before they get to the Dwarfs.
We are very happy to bring Karak Azgaraz to all console players
says Martin Wahlund, CEO Fatshark.
We double down on excitement, and also release the free Quest and Contracts DLC the same day
The Karak Azgaraz DLC will feature three new maps: Khazid Kro, set in the outlying settlement of the same name; as well The Cursed Rune and Chain of Fire, both set in the snow-covered Grey Mountains. There’ll also be two new weapons: the Warpick for the Dwarf Ranger and the Falchion for the Witch Hunter. And we’ll have three new achievements to earn.
The free Quest and Contracts content will feature long term quests offering rare loot, and short term contracts offering temporary hero buffs in the form of boons.
We’re certainly excited for more Skaven killing action. We’ll see you amongst the Dwarfen ruins, fellow adventurers.
Today Fatshark and Nordic Games have announced that they will partner in the console release of the up and coming Warhammer: The End times – Vermintide. Fatshark will self-publish the digital versions of the game for consoles, and Nordic Games will publish the physical editions worldwide. So lock your doors and get prepared, as on October 4th the Skaven are coming.
Vermintide pits you and three others against vile and endless Skaven hordes, which have overrun the city of Ubersreik. You must fight the menace together as four out of five heroes, each with unique play styles, personalities and weapon arsenals. It’s survival of the fittest, either you finish them or they will finish you.
When asked about the announcement Martin Wahlund, CEO at Fatshark said “More than half a million PC gamers have already taken Vermintide to their heart, and this fall it’s time for console players to do the same. The consoles will get an extended version that includes all DLCs released for the PC version to date. We are over the moon to be working with Nordic Games on this release as their experience and expertise are incomparable.”
Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at Nordic Games followed on to say “The combination of Fatshark and Warhammer seems too good to be true. We do have quite a few fanboys in our team, who played Krater, Lead and Gold, and – of course – also played the hell out of Warhammer Vermintide on PC. To say we are stoked to work with Fatshark on Warhammer Vermintide for consoles and the physical edition for PC is the understatement of 2016 in my book”
The console version of Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide will include the super challenging Last Stand game mode as well as its two maps, where the players fend off horde after horde of Skaven in intense and increasingly difficult battles. It will also include Sigmar’s Blessing as well as the Drachenfels DLC, which contains three additional adventure maps set outside of Ubersreik.

Fancy yourself as a bit of a narrator? Then you may want to check out Fatshark’s call for a voice of Vermintide’s next trailer – plus, all entries will nab themselves “a free game”… so what are you waiting for? Get recording!
First of all, we’re looking forward to hearing the entries. Who haven’t announced something in a movie or game trailer manner? We thought it would be a fun way to include gamers, and also to make something different. To my knowledge this has never been done before. It’s going to be a blast!
