Vermintide's Drachenfels DLC introduces three new spooky maps


Fog, trees, and castles, oh my!

Joe liked the first-person cooperative rat-smashingWarhammer: End Times – Vermintide quite a bit, even though he felt it didn’t do enough to differentiate itself from Left 4 Dead. I haven’t had a chance to dig my teeth into it yet, but I’m all about Gothic castles and killing beasts with friends, so the three new upcoming maps might be a good time for me to jump in.

The Drachenfels DLC introduces new areas outside of Ubersreik: Castle Drachenfels, the Dungeons below, and Summoner’s Peak. These new haunts will be filled with the same rats, but will now have deadly traps hidden throughout. A torch mechanic will also be implemented to illuminate these dark places. This DLC will be the second paid add-on for Vermintide(the first being map set in the fun-to-saySchluesselschloss), but no price has been announced at this time. If you’re hungry for more loot-gathering and pest extermination, the Drachenfelsmaps come out on May 26.

Time for me to find some friends to play with. Or maybe you guys want to play with me?
